Terraced houses

I’ve taken a different approach to our latest aufgabe. Doing it more digitally (in a smart way I like to think).

parametric variation of given frame (lateral walls) in given limits. each house becomes uniqe, escaping repetition. hints of emergence.

Basically the facades are independent from the core. Each lateral wall (calcan/blind wall) starts from an ideal shape that is subtly altered by a small script. This creates variation, as opposed to the usual repetition of a terraced housing lot. Mass production of 18 identical houses becomes mass production of 18 identical and UNIQUE houses. I would like to stress that: Mass production of 18 identical houses becomes mass production of 18 identical and, in the same time, UNIQUE houses.

There. Now I feel better.
