The Algorithmist

WAO!
look at what the mr. Brett Steele has just drop in his blog

The Algorithmist
is a resource dedicated to anything algorithms - from the practical realm, to the theoretical realm. There are also links and explanation to problemsets

this is one of those resources that will most likely become huge soon.

i wonder what could be the ways to expand the sections that deal "directly" with geometry. in other words, how could this growing knowledge be translated into a geometry manageable by architects...

by the way, have you checked on, also via resarch, this one:

?

Yes, I had seen it a couple of days ago, but the images where not so fascinating somehow. when you look at the process it is much more interesting and resamble a lot the generating grids used by Escher.
I think what is interesting for me is the interaction rules in order to make the patterns, since this would be an important factor in our prototyping adventure. so far is a very simple exercise based in edge compatibility (see Chapter 1 of his thesis: http://logarithmic.net/pfh-files/ghost-diagrams/dts-draft.pdf)

later it would be good to stablish more complex relationship to create the patterns, since we would expect to use a variable module as the result of the algorithms.
