Wild Choreography

Academic | UCLA | Summer 2021
Instructor: Yara Feghali
Category: Simulation & Game Design

 

The notorious Beverly Hills’ six-way intersection at N Beverly Drive, N Canon Drive, and Lomitas Ave is our wild choreography’s stage. We study the speed and aerodynamism of various forms of urban transportation, from electric scooters, bikes, cars, and buses, to delivery robots. We then assess our design through performance and go back and forth between design and testing. This module’s provocation is to shift our understanding of architecture from an organizational logic to one of movement. We learn to design through metrics and have constant feedback loops of data. We also look into traffic movement to learn how to read patterns in vector flows.
