title Centennial Chromagraph: Data Spatialization and Computational Craft
source ACADIA 14: Design Agency [Proceedings of the 34th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 9781926724478]Los Angeles 23-25 October, 2014), pp. 167-176
summary This paper describes the design, fabrication, and assembly process of Centennial Chromagraph, a large-scale installation recently constructed for the centennial anniversary of the University of Minnesota School of Architecture. The project is an exercise in data spatialization: using computational design tools to generate formal and spatial constructions with large quantities of information.
