computational methods
Antique pillars and algorithmic columns
Michael Hansmeyer’s groundbreaking work as an architect and computer specialist defies human imagination. He uses computational methods to virtually design structures yet leaving the computer a margin to freewheel, which leads to surprising results. Techniques like subdivison surface methods originally stem from animation film techniques. After the virtual design proces, material construction and realization asks for additional creative solutions - which are found and applied.
