Geometry in Architecture

Inspired by zach lieberman‘s  Land Line (https://medium.com/@zachlieberman/land-lines-e1f88c745847), we want to build a similar application as final project.

Living in New York City, we surround by buildings but they all look like cubes. But there are many interesting buildings in the world with various shapes. In this project, we want to introduce these architectures to more people.

The interaction would be: the users could draw any geometry on Ipad and then the pictures and information of a random architecture with this geometry will show up. We will use  dollar gesture recognizer to recognize user’s drawing.

The program also calculates the coordinates of the starting point, ending point, and centroid. For further development, we’d like to try to match users’ trails with the edges in architecture.
