Navigating the Lattice

Curated by Kirby! You have no doubt played a 2D game on a grid of squares, chess or checkers for example. Not every piece moves the same way perhaps, however in principle each square has four neighbors over the edge, and four more along the diagonals. Bishops know those diagonals… …whereas Knights move over one […]

Generating the Flextegrity Lattice

Our purpose here is to elaborate a classic Python framework for storing and writing geometric information in a variety of formats, suitable for ray tracing and use within CAD programs. The target architecture we want to model is Flextegrity, a tension-compression lattice based on holding compression islands in relative positions, in an all-way space. Its inventor […]

Stay Prepared For Earthquakes With Proper Measures

We all know that natural disasters are sudden and dangerously powerful. There are many factors that make natural disasters a severe threat to the community worldwide. Even though professionals have learned methods for the anticipation of disasters like hurricanes, blizzards, or tornadoes, some natural disasters still strike without any warning. And one of the most […]

Kirby’s Rhombic Triacontahedron

The rhombic triacontahedron (RT) dissects into 120 such modules, left and right handed. Meanwhile, the regular tetrahedron may be sliced into four quadrants, each of which further subdivides into three pairs of left and right handed versions of the same shape, for a total of 24 modules, differently shaped from the ones above. Those of […]
