title Ruled Surface Media Facades
source Rethinking Comprehensive Design: Speculative Counterculture, Proceedings of the 19th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2014) / Kyoto 14-16 May 2014, pp. 689–698
summary Traditionally media facades have been created using 2D surfaces, not dissimilar to televisions. As computational architecture continues to explore non-Euclidian shapes it is a logical process to investigate the use and possibilities of emerging complex curved surfaces for the display of media content to match architectural design aspirations with demands of ubiquitous city concepts of penetrating surfaces with information. Drawing on existing architectural knowledge of ruled surfaces the paper outlines the implementation of adopting existing principles from architecture and mathematics to contemporary discussions in media architecture. It demonstrates that ruled surfaces can function as media facades by simulating ten different ruled surface types in Grasshopper and overlaying them with different video content. Based on the results the team proceeded to build a 1:1 prototype of a hyperbolic paraboloid to test if the simulated results in the computer matched with the physical model. The prototype was further tested using media content to observe the visibility of the display from various viewing positions. Based on the findings the paper concludes that ruled surface media facades are feasible. This investigation, its proposed hypothesis, methodology, implications, significance and evaluation are presented in the paper.
