This was a group project between American and Italian students using Generative Components. It is a design for a media tech center located next to the Mercati Generali in Torino, Italy. The project was conceived of as a set of tectonic plates, divided by the area of the rail road tracks. It was conceptualized that the Mercati Generali and Lingotto area were once linked, forming a thriving city center. Before the split of the two plates, the fabric of the city was consistent across the fault line. The connections between these two plates remained when the plates split, though they were hidden within the urban fabric. The force of this fracture created major tensions, pulling from these hidden connections and perpendicular to the fault, and minor tensions, pulling from fractures on the hidden connections' lines and parallel to the fault. These minor tensions were elevated upward along the hidden connections and a spline-based component was mapped to create the apertures in the skin of the building, mirroring the splines created on the ground plane. The landscaping was derived from the intersection between the major and minor tensions. Surfaces were formed from the intersection of the splines, with each surface one step higher of lower than the bordering surfaces.
