zier meets Mies

“Bezier meets Mies”

workshop at De Montfort University Leicester lead by D.Koering

4th to 7th of March

From classic floor plans to organic architectural solutions. How the Non-Uniform Rational B-Spline [could have] changed the way in our language of creation of virtual objects. A technique developed by the car industry to describe mathematical organic free forms. The idea about creating surface from splines which are controlled goes back to Pierre Etienne Bezier who developed this theory in the sixties-as we see architecture is a slow reaction on modern thoughts.

The workshop will focus on the basis of constructing 3D objects in a classic way on real architectural examples, later spiced up by personal organic shapes which are produced by students and finally the extraction of data from the computer as communication file for further re-production.
