Artist Statement:


    In this project, the proportions are not only of aesthetic importance, but also of technical significance, since the doorway is intended to function as a sun-control device. The software used to generate the variants allowed manipulation of about fifty dimensioning variables.


Process Information:


    Composition of Lines

    Architects have traditionally used T-squares or parallel rules, triangles and compasses to construct line drawings that define building geometry. But these traditional tools are now being replaced by computer drafting systems (just as the writer’s traditional pencil and typewriter are being replaced by word processing systems).
