Hi Dr. Gibson.

I'm obviously using it in architectural research for what it is worth.

No RP model of the Graf Residence, yet although the steel was all
modeled and cut to size in 3D.

This model is moving in a direction that merges the two.

Obviously "scripting" allows architects to generate form from code.

Also SIGGRAPH 2008 had a nice display of architectural RP models from
leading architectural firms (about 1 - 2' tall). The exception was a
spectacular 4 - 6' model from Thom Mayne which would be worth finding
images for. Hope that is not too late for your needs.

I believe RedEye/Arc were responsible for the Mayne model.

construction + design + development
