Metro Mechanics

to modeller copy

Graduation project from Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Copenhagen expands the Copenhagen Metro System with a ring line consisting of 17 station round all the different city parts. As and alternative to solving the situation when the standart fails, a parametric model is programmed to be able to form individual metrostations aligning to fit each site, based on various input from the individual urban context.
The parametric metrostation has the ability to be logistically similar but formally different. An approach translated from object orientated programming is used for managing the complex modelling into subtasks. The project is developed using the software Generative Components from Bentley.
The project is done in 100 days with an outcome of 17 stations in plaster models all fully functional. Together they tell a story of which cityparts are more homogenous than others. 2007
