Adaptive Size

Sebastian Errazuriz: Wallgren Arkitekter and BOX Bygg create parametric tool Finch that generates adaptive plans

Architecture studio Wallgren Arkitekter and Swedish construction company BOX Bygg created the design tool Finch which can generate floor plans adapted to the constraints of a site. It allows architects to understand the potential of a specific building site, especially in terms of size and configuration. The Incredible Shrinking Man is interested in the creation of a similar tool that takes into consideration the size of the actual people living in a building. If we can design a tool that allows people to experience how much space they’d lose if they would be taller then being tall is perhaps not so appealing anymore.
