Discussion’s theme:
Thesis’ historical context, as well as architectural and digital background.

Documentation provided:
PaperV2, Funding proposal, Google Slides CONTEXT

Scale:
We continue talking about scale. Is this an object? Could be more about the join and less about surface?

Materials:
Explore with more than just plastic, maybe concrete? Multimaterial? 3d printed metal?

Methods:
Josh Bard: User input and iteration, semiautonomous agent iterating. Generic shape: multiresolution of the specific, rebuilding. Shallow meshes and output (Stephanie Mueller).
Generic power of manipulating form.

Jeremy Ficca: Prioritizing about this whole context and project. Infill / Solid things that are not solid? Approaching architecture from a different angle, different attitude of what we understand of surfaces/bones/meshes?
Fidelity in architecture: resolution
Drivers of resolution: structure, aesthetics, material/tectonics, performative metrics

Tasks:
Make a claim. Modify the claim because is more like a topic. State a position. CLAIM
By the end of the semester have an array of 3 different objects with 3 different resolutions and 3 different materials to compare. Procedural matrix how to generate research.
