BENJAMIN KOREN

ARCHITECTURAL ASSOCIATION Harmonic Proportion in Amorphic Form: A Music Pavilion

Tutors: Charles Walker, Lip Khoon Chiong

Koren wrote the '3-D Digital Harmonograph' software that generated the pavilion. It is based on a mechanical device said to visualise musical harmony by drawing apparently spatial graphs. He developed 3-D singlelooping line graphs by adding a dimension, employed Fibonacci number ratios and harmonics, and translated them into proportionate continuous surface-meshes.
