title The generation of Chinese ice-ray lattice designs on 3D surfaces
source Communicating Space(s) [24th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-5-9] Volos (Greece) 6-9 September 2006, pp. 316-319
summary We revisit Stiny’s ice-ray grammar and adapt its shape rules, including additional rules for augmenting a polygon by inscribing a triangular shape, to apply to twisted surfaces. We describe the constructive process of rule application for twisted polygons, shortly describe the implementation of the grammar, and illustrate its use in the design of a façade, the shape of which is defined as a twisted polygon.
