Project Details:

Agents/Boids were deployed into the plaza with a simple rule of avoiding each other and spending time in the plaza.Originating from either end and based on Fuzzy principles of directionality, location, conferences, final target etc they merrily just walk around the plaza. Each agent, simulated a set of visitors, divides the plaza.

A programmatic study of the plaza comprising of the formal and the informal retail, coupled with the global endeavour to convert Nehru Place into a 24×7 destination, caused us to overlap packing and folding as a design tool. Previously established agent divisions of the plaza served as inputs for both tools. The lines acting as packing geometry reflectors and the divided spaces provide for surface origami.
