AFTER INFINITE VARIATION
Exploring potential qualities of affect in parametric graphic patterning

Contemporary architecture has focused great energy in both technological and graphic pursuits to further examine the decorated shed through the guise of parametric modeling.   These pursuits have been emblematized by mutating patterns that describe infinite variations upon the skin of architecture.  Significant work into the modification of architecture’s skin also implies a keen interest with its surface.  After Infinite Variation challenges the articulation of surfaces to perform beyond its prescribed requirement as a building skin and begin to reconsider how a subject is altered through the graphic character of its differentiated membrane.  The project was awarded as a Finalist in the international juried competition, Art in Architecture, with Michael Graves, FAIA.
