ALGORITHMIC TOWER
This routine shows a lot of effects applied to a high-rise structure. The tower is subjected to tapering, twisting, and push and pull forces, which are supposed to mimic the wind force and to push and pull the surface of the skin in an opposite direction to the wind.This routine is inspired by Woo Jae's definition. However, at the end, I applied Jeffrey Vaglio's definition for the operable louvers, horizontal, and vertical grids as alternatives to my design.

It would have been nice if I showed how the tower's operable panels respond to the sun's position. The problem was the size of both definitions, my definition and the solar system, were very large. Whenever I connect them together, Rhino and Grasshopper crash. So, I wasn't able to show it on my vignette. However, I made this routine before as an exercise so you can check it HERE.

I watched some videos to learn how to create the skin. However, I designed my own skin shape. As you will notice, you need to do some steps in Rhino (very basic steps on how to link objects in Rhino to Grasshopper). Video tutorial 01,Video tutorial 02,Video tutorial 03,Video tutorial 04

Truss Structure Truss structure is about exploding points, listing them individually, and then joining them in groups together with lines. More images: Image 02, Image 03

 Responsive Surface Responsive surface that changes shape based on a mathematical function. More images: Image 02,Image 03, Definition Screenshot Solar Responsive Panel Responsive panels surface that changes circles radii according to the sun's position. The development is based on nGai's definition of incident solar and his definition of component population on mesh.
