電腦運算在某種程度上是透過程式的條件式與參數化，以不同的排列與組織方式讓衍生設計，生產出不同的形態。本研究運用Rhinoceros軟體的外掛－關連式模型Grasshopper的編撰程式功能以數位形式來操作像素化的設計。設計的要點著重於單元間關係的變化，以同中取異的概念來延伸設計操作，並選取出四種不同的像素皮層來操作設計，包括：影像色階、亂數、吸子(Attractor)、與摩爾紋，將建築立面以「像素」與參數化來重新詮釋，已產生視覺上與身體上不同的經驗。 This study was conducted from visual perspective to re-examine the phenomenon of a living environment filled with the same objects as result of modern industry’s mass production. In this study, Pointillism adopted by Impressionism was first explored, and mosaic tiles adopted in architecture were used for the discussion of relations between micro-units and an organization, after which a special information element in today’s digital era – “pixel” – was identified to construct a basic unit of digital information. The properties of “pixel” were examined to explore the possibilities of its spatial applications.
Space is the embodiment of our lifestyle. In this digital era, a building facade is just like a medium, and the units on the facade are similar to the pixels on a screen. They can be building elements such as bricks, windows, balconies or others. Their compound patterns can lead to different compositions, and each “pixel” can turn into a pure object.
The computation of a computer is to some extent condition-setting and parametricization, which enables the production of different patterns through different combinations and organizations. In this study, Rhinoceros was used alongside a plug-in – Grasshopper - to compile programs for the digital manipulation of pixelization design. The design focused on the changing relations between units. The concept of “seeking differences among similarities” is used to extend design manipulation. Four different pixel surfaces such as picture color gradation, random number, attractor and Moire were selected for design manipulation to re-interpret the “pixel” and parametricization of building facades and create different visual and physical experiences.
