[platform for showcasing unfinished versions]

This is a sketch file I made to play with the customization of UI that software allows us, and exploring its effects. Do the aesthetics of the software we use affect the way we use them? I've always been fascinated with the wireframe mode, with the way things are perceived purely through line and density, and how we often are unable to make out what is going on in a traditional sense of 3D objects. This is not a new concept, and is often explored in the representation stages of a project, but I wonder at its effects when used in the design stage. This one screenshot is as far as the project ever got because obviously this kind of thinking didn't fly far in an integrated studio

(bonus: I love the way the grid lines create different moire patterns when viewed on different screens, or scrolled through)

(bonus 2: This is actually not the original project. I never saved the file or took a screenshot of the original lol But when I heard of the idea of unfinished work I thought back to this idea and decided to recreate it to share the screenshot.)

This is a collaboration with Marie Chapa.

These are unfinished/rejected images and drawings that we defined as fragmented crystallization as the division of a whole into modules, allowing the design to atomize in both program and structure.

Collaboration with Vivian Gutierez and isabella esparza:

The initial research intended the exploration of how architecture was rejected based on historical typologies and how it served in its social context as a representation of the urban community.

Rejected/unfinished work from the Spatial Bay project. A series of modules were developed through manipulating the enneper surface. I was interested in the range of spatial qualities those modules created and how the clean planar projections contrast the actual complex play of surfaces.

This is an unfinished Houdini exploration in The Technology for Theory Lab with Joris Putteneers. We explore a Blackbox algorithmic workflow, producing topological complexities resulting deformities, mutations, and abnormalities are celebrated.
