Trees Again



A problem left after faceting the pavilion was the situation with the trees. The smooth and round tree didn’t fit in among the crystalline surfaces. A new solution was needed.

The new tree comes in two different species, both triangular, but one enclosed, perimetric and one open, centric. The hollow trees can function as light shafts for the caves below or conceal installations, while the open ones are weight-bearing only. However, with their open corners they take up less space and provides a bit of shelter. Each species can also vary in proportions, such as waist triangle scale and location along the tree axis and base triangle scale.



The trees are derived from a simple script which needs some polishing, but feel free to look at the current version.
