Voronoi Wall

Jon McCormack:

The room needed special acoustic treatment due to a number of hard reflective surfaces and its use for seminars and video conferencing. [...] A river flow and degradation simulation was carried out resulting in a meandering flow pattern, which formed the basis of point allocation upon which the Voronoi architecture partitioning could be applied. Following the river simulation, the space was partitioned using the Voronoi algorithm and the subsequent polygons used as control hulls for B-spline surfaces.

  1. Voronoi Iis the new dazzle.

      For when your stripes aren't blobby enough.

      I just pictured a dazzle-painted wall, with this lattice over it, itself painted in a (non-matching) dazzle pattern...

      But I just got off an overnight retail shift, so seeing things like that is normal.

    I see a new xscreensaver module here.

  3. Voronoi has become the default in architectural patterns. Don't know what to do, just make it a voronoi, that's easily rationalized, isn't?

    The use of voronoi patterns really falls apart when it is a flat application, as it is here, but in the example of the previous T-Rex head, it can hold it's own much more easily due to the spatial nature of the 3d shape. In the T-Rex, it becomes a way to polygonize the geometry of the model, which is an inherit step in forming the physical piece. On the screen wall, it is almost applied as an afterthought.

    One of the few people I believe is using these patterns successfully in architecture is using it in sculptural fashion:
