The idea of workshop was to acquaint with the methods of computational architecture and parametric aspects of design process. Two week workshop contained one week of intensive grasshopper courses and one week to make a project and build the butterfly. The idea of a butterfly came up as association out of the shape of public building where it supposed to be hanged up: ‘‘the butterfly in the chrysalis’’.
The final design is a metaphorical butterfly.
Object contains two parts: body and wings. Body is made of ribbed extended inner structure, which is covered by the shell that has openings based on attractor points. The pattern of the wings was created using a Voronoi diagram to divide a surface into the cells.
