Andrew Heumann’s Case Study in Translation

Wonderful thesis project of Andrew Heumann at Cornell University. Text extracted from his blog:

“Entitled “Case Study in Translation,” the project attempted a parametric reinterpretation of the Case Study House program of the American Mid-Century. Beginning with parametric analysis of the precedent houses, the project attempted to understand the formal and functional logics at work in the houses, and produce algorithmic translations of those logics in order to bring them into a contemporary context, adapting them for the cultural conditions of the present day.”
