Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Adventures in Architecture with Mathematica

Inspired by the work of avant-garde architects, Chris Carlson, chief interactive graphics developer at Wolfram Research, has been exploring the possibilities of designing and modeling structures using Mathematica.

Over the last year, he’s shared some of his experiments in this blog, including his posts "Twisted Architecture" and "Designing the Brick Wall of the Future".

At the International Mathematica User Conference 2009, Chris shared another one of his interesting adventures in architecture using Mathematica.

In this video from the conference, see Chris put an interesting spin on Norman Foster’s Hearst Tower.
