Recently I was invited by Arkylab a mexican architecture studio to consult them with some computational geometries for a projet named CLARUM which is an Eco Industrial Park wich is one of the first of its class in Mexico, the Industrial Park contemplates several sustainable systems like its own water treatment system , huge spaces for photovoltaic panels , eco friendly public vehicle transport system and the implementation of a free bicycle system.
This is a government project divided in several stages and even do the master plan of the whole project its already done currently we are focusing in the first stage for presenting it at a conceptual level.
I was asked to design some elements around the park with several purposes and they wanted them to have an organic looking to represent the ecological aspect of the park , I propose the use some sensors to measure environmental data of the park and represent it on this structures with some lighting systems using pachhube and arduino technologies, to organically communicate the environmental state of the park.
The images above is the structure I made for the first stage which is arc for the entrance of the park , I used some recursive L-System algorithms to generate the branch – like structure curves and used this ones to model the topology with the help of T-Splines for Rhino.
We are preparing a conceptual video for the presentation that I will upload once the presentation is made.
