POLYOPIA

 Starting from studding Ledoux’s design procedures and his architectural elements, following by analyzing Comme de garcon’s method of assembling pieces, we investigated on various techniques in representing architecture parts. We hypothesized, by taking advantage of ledoux’s architectural elements Via establishing a generative workflow that includes series of operations based on machine vision we are able to generate new architectural elements out of the existing ones. 

In this process, via intensifying ledoux’s design procedures through the application of new matrices of vision ,we examined various understanding of the elements. 

At first, we chose multiple pieces from leudox’s catalogue _as building blocks of a proxy project_ which mostly belonged to the same geometric family(circular) and they were visually homogeneous because they could nest together properly. Then we tried to compress our captures from selected elements together and created super images with single point of view of two or more pieces. 

Secondly, we allocated particular points of view to machines and manipulated its observation from the real object which resulted in creation of another series of super images regarding multiple point of observation. In this phase deliberately diminishing the input information as a technique, we could be able to receive different readings of our previous elements 

Subsequently, we used these two series of super images as references to move forward in our workflow therefore by series of operations like extrusion, Boolean intersection, and, negative Boolean through light, we made new pieces out of the original ones. 

Then, we examined a series of transformational processes by means of digital tools in order to create super positions that can eventually help us in creation of new architecture, by overlapping each object’s multiple captures, we compressed all observational information that machine can absorb in a series of capturing frames (through particular path or 360-degree rotation), by overlapping two or more piece’s captures, another series of super positions has been created. 

Considering shadows as a point of view we treated the shadows as new architectural elements in creation of superposition’s, we discovered that the application of shadows in these procedures can be both subtractive (cutting one element by shadow of itself or another piece) and additive (adding shadow’s geometry to real object). 

Inspired by ledoux’s syntax in generating series of architecture from various kind of nesting multiple pieces together,we are introducing a series of architectural guiding documents in plan , elevation and site view as references for our new suggesting family of buildings.
