the primitive hut

NURBS surfaces by nature, like four-corner topologies with U and V directions. Şebnem Yalınay Çinici has formulated a tectonic exercise of “Primitive Hut”, which in my point of view is a tough geometric challenge; a subdivision on a real three-corner manifold. That seems very easy at the beginning as both Rhinoceros and Grasshopper are able to create surfaces with three corners, by either lofting, meshing or edge curve methods. However, those surfaces, then cannot be used to develop sub-surfaces because the need to define U and V directions. Then, Rhino seems […]
