Throughout the centuries, geometry has been employed as a keystone of architectural design, from the ancient Egyptian pyramids to modern-day skyscrapers. However, recent trends and technology have rendered the manufacturing and construction industries the ability to produce nearly any shape desirable, leading to the emergence of many designs that blatantly ignore all possibilities of geometry as a system of organizing principles for design. This script represents one attempt to return to a geometry-based sense of order as a way of giving meaning and wonder back to architectural design.
The geometrical diagram utilized by this script, the Voronoi diagram, derives from the work of Georgy Voronoy, a Ukrainian mathematician. I utilized the custom-scripted VB.net component made by Vicente Soler, available here: http://www.grasshopper3d.com/forum/topics/voronoi-3d
