Flocking:Birds and the Like Part 3
In my previous articles, my exploration of flocking has remained in the realm of a diagram. This iteration is the first step in taking those conceptual thoughts and brining them to a more architectural level. My previous diagrams generated a logic. The logic consisted of a series of points that responded to one another and a series of vectors attached to those points. The next step I took was in aggregating those collections of points.
The aggregations involved connecting the spheres of flocking’s origin points. After the aggregation each of the flocks was connected to the next via a poly-line. Those lines were the divided to create points, these points were affected by the semi circles, which effectively represent spheres of influence. The points are then turned into floor plates.
