Michael Hansmeyer's Computational Architecture

January 15, 2014

Michael Hansmeyer is a post-modern architect who utilizes algorithmic architecture techniques, generative art mentalities, and CAD software to generate complex structures. 'A computational approach enables architecture to be embedded with an extraordinary degree of information. Structure and surface can exhibit hyper-resolution, with seemingly endless distinct formations. The processes can generate highly specific local conditions, while ensuring an overall coherency and continuity. As such, the resulting architecture does not lend itself to a visual reductionism. Rather, the procedures can devise truly surprising topographies and topologies that go far beyond what one could have traditionally conceived.'
