This is the first attempt towards defining a Comprehensive Parametric Model (‘a phenotype’) able to define most of the wooden roof churches of the Troodos region in Cyprus. The idea will be further explored during an upcoming workshop starting on the 26th of March 2012 at [A.R.C.] University of Nicosia.
The Workshop has concluded and all four teams have successfully presented their real scale prototypes. RvsR started as an attempt to highlight the difference between the processes of repetition and replication, with the last being the requested outcome. The workshop has therefore implemented Parametric Design Tools (PDT) to investigate the above notions. In addition, RvsR […]
