note|the third part of the project, exploration on building design, took place as an individual effort in the University of Puerto Rico
The aim of this project is to create a logical algorithm based on Grasshopper that allows us to approach every one of the Puertas de Corserolla, taking in consideration each’s condition, population, vacant space and built space. A perfect blending of the city and the mountain, or Transnaturalization, implies balancing out the green with the built, bringing down the mountain and taking the city up. These developments will gently comb Corserolla, becoming less aggressive the further they move into the reserve, until they become as smallest.
PART I . A COMPREHENSIVE IDEA
The grasshopper generated algorithm below illustrates how a formula can be established about the balance between commercial, housing, empty and green areas, in the way passive transport would occur in cells. For each of the six settings, the premise is different, consequently, the outcome or suggested solution. The first row shows relationships were the green space of the mountain dominates. The algorithm suggests and alternate redistribution of area, including green space in the city, and balancing out the empty space, commercial space, and housing space as well. Since we wouldn’t want all of the housing, commercial and green spaces to happen at once, on the same spot, the third bar articulates them while keeping the same total area for each. The second row simulates a relationship where the city dominates. Thus, it moves up the mountain, diluting the boundaries .
PART II . DEFINING THE RULES OF PLAY
