Skyscraper #4 - The Final

Skyscraper #2

Getting there... 3d voronoi + genetic algorithms -> my unique skyscraper design.

Voronoi-like shapes in nature

4. The first time I noticed the suspiciously similar pattern in nature was when I stumbled upon an underwater photo of a sea turtle. It looked like it had the Voronoi signature all over.

 3. Last year, a lot of excitement spread across the planet Earth as NASA, while drilling deep in the Antarctic ice, discovered a little shrimp. But what excited me was the all too familiar pattern of the icy shaft.

2. Ice and snow often resemble the Voronoi patterns.

1. But the hands-down winners are the Radiolarians, tiny sea creatures with siliceous exoskeletons. I was totally blown away when I noticed that one of my accidental Voronoi developments bore a striking resemblance to one of them.

Skyscraper Internals

Experimenting with the skyscraper core, floors... trying to create some interesting living spaces within the structure. Would you work in an office like that? Is it mandatory nowadays to integrate "green" gardens with trees some 100m above the ground?

Refining the Genotype

...of my genetic algorithm prototype, in order to derive more interesting shapes, actually resembling architecture.
