Stagnant Pond - Exploration

Taking a hexagon rotated in both the X/Y Origin and then Z Origin I tried to explore surface generating from the peaks that formed formed. The shape was complex and sections through it alluded to the idea of the stagnant pond.

Through the use of geometry the stagnant pond becomes alive again and posses the dynamic qualities associated with linear structures. The perception of movement and flow is expressed in the nodes that connect the triangles together.

This is similar to the effect of shattered glass or the formulation of crystal, while there is a random formulation of shape a pattern seems to emerge.

Like a section through a building there seems to be levels and visual connection between spaces. This is an interesting take on the idea of a dome, the typology its self is more related to the idea of the stagnant pond but the use of geometric shapes rotated in the axis of a circle add a unique quality to the space worth exploring further.

  1. What a interesting way to experiment with form and shape. Is the choice of program important; are you confining this research to sketchup?
