From Thomson’s theory of growth and forms to architectural transformation

In this investigation we tried to learn D’arcy Thompson’s theory on growth and form and apply it to architecture. So we figure out that it could be a new approach in creating architecture not from divided parts but growth it like live organism. We also explored this dynamic processes through prism of Grasshopper tools. Here [...]
