I thought of a concept for what I could do with the program Max once we started handling it in our projects. Its centered around the idea that light is the controlling factor of all the living environment that we experience. It bounces off of materials and either is included or excluded from spaces to create the desired three dimensional forms that an architect had in mind for the user.
I thought that if a sensor could pick up the light that enters different styles of architecture, I.E. Gothic vs. Modern, it could pick up how light interacts with an interior space. How dim or colored it is, how it bounces off of the surface materials. Then the sensor would input that information into Max, and max would then export an algorithm to create basic 3 dimensional models that are “in the manner of” the architectural style it surveyed. Below is a diagram of the process:
