Building By Numbers from Kisa Naumova on Vimeo.
The movie above illustrates Kisa Naumova’s work to recreate 27 floors of the Leeds School of Contemporary Art and Graphic Design.
Kisa used a series of architects’ drawings, traced out in Illustrator, and subsequently run through custom made scripts to automatically build the prims in exactly the right places, at the right sizes and rotations. Once in place tweaks were made by hand allowing the building to be completed in 2 days.
The process of importing site plans to automate the building process is intriguing, it points to the future whereby blue prints will be automatically imported and constructed in virtual space.
