GrassHopper + Paneling tools - Surface Deformation & Reconstruction

Starting from a surface, we keep some deformation points, three in this case.
Theese are repulsive or attractive points, and raise the deformation of the original pointgrid, according to our goals (structural - functional - aesthetic).
We obtain a new deformed grid, from which we can rebuild a new surface.
The curvature analisys shows depressions areas (blue) and flat ones, that should be differently panelized.

Logical Design : 4L13N N35T

We resume the investigation in topology and logical design and architecture.
The goal is to reach the systemic control of the shape starting form external dynamic conditions. A sort of reverse engineering approach.
According to this goal we are also evaluating singularity of meshes and Non Uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS).
