So I took the same parametric script which I had been working with in my last post and tweaked it a little bit in order to create this. The tower, version 2. I didn’t particularly like the way the old one bulged in the centre, it didn’t come across as believable, and overall just didn’t look right.
I did two render passes of the new one with different light conditions to accentuate different features of the design.
The frame has a more steel like quality in the latter, and I like the uplighting better as opposed to the effervescent quality of light in the first. The lighting also accentuates the zigzagging form which is something I focused on in this second iteration of the parametric tower. The main issue with the latter render is the lighting of the backdrop, no doubt something to keep working on.
I aim to composite these two render passes sometime in future, so we will see what comes of them. While I may continue to play around with the structure, at this stage I am happy with the form generated.
