Even in Randomness, We Prefer Mathematically-Generated

We've always been fascinated by what's possible through the use and manipulation of data through mathematical means, even when it comes to our building materials.

In order to position our Portland & Columbia (PCOL) project appropriately along Columbia Boulevard's strikingly diverse character, we designed a shapely simple facility with the anticipation of the giving the building skin extra life.

Here's a sneak peak:

 

In order the generate the random pattern, we again enlisted an algorithm. Curious what it looks like?  See below.

 

And zoomed in over the particular parameters.

 

Sounds neat right?! Well, early next Spring 2017 we'll start to see the actual materials being installed. For now, we'll have to imagine with the samples we were given.
