Voronoi From 3d Curves
Recently I have been experimenting with generating 3D voronoi structures from points arrayed along curves. The voronoi cells follow the curve and define a continuous space around the curve. Essentially the voronoi is generating surfaces that define the space that falls between these knot like curves. Because of the density of the points along the curve these interesting surfaces are generated that are reminiscent of minimal surfaces.
1. Art as Interlocutor Gadamer's aesthetics fosters an attentiveness towards the mystery of the given and its unexpected folds of meaningfulness. Gadamer's arguments are varied, ushering the reader towards an aesthetic attentiveness rather than making iconoclastic declarations about what the aesthetic is. They embrace close readings of the poets Rilke and Celan as well as broad strategic manoeuvres which defend the cognitive status of aesthetic and hermeneutical judgements. Gadamer insists that a picture or image that is worthy of being called a work of art, has the power to affect us immediately. Gadamer's aesthetics is strictly anti-Kantian.

In October 2006, Louis Vuitton unveiled plans for "Louis Vuitton Foundation for Creation," whose ambition is "to showcase art and France to the world." Located in the Sixteenth Arrondissement of Paris, on the edge of the zoo, the museum is designed by architect Frank Gehry with STUDIOS acting as architect of record. Working closely with Gehry Partners, STUDIOS is working to realize the intricate chrysalis of glass designed by Frank Gehry to house the art collection of the Foundation. STUDIOS has several goals: developing and coordinating studies with the 3D design tool "Digital Project;" synthesis of engineering and security; integrating the project into its surroundings; and construction adminstration. Currently in construction phase, the project has been identified as a pilot for the adaptation of standard NF Tertiary buildings / HQE ® approach to cultural buildings. It will be delivered in the spring 2014 and open to the public in the autumn 2014.

Abraj Kudai is a mixed-used development located at the Manafia area in Makkah's central zone, only 2.2 km south of the Holy Haram in Makkah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Due to its unparalleled size, height as well as distinguished location, exposure and architectural style, the building appears as a striking landmark with a profoundly modern multifunctional identity relating to both the Saudi locality and the Islamic universality of its expected users. Bordered by Ajyad Street from the east, Kudai and Birka tunnels from the west and Prince Meteb land from the north, Abraj Kudai is accessible from two main roads from the east and west as well as a private road from the north. The site is surrounded by private buildings and properties from both the east and the west. The five star towers offer all related services for the visitors of the Holy Kaaba.
