The Liverpool shopping centre facade achieves visual dynamism whilst safeguarding a geometrically rational concept. Working with an already established cylindrical building form, Rojkind Arquitectos engaged Robert Stuart-Smith and Roland Snooks to develop the facade geometry comprised of developable surfaces. A generative algorithm was written that enabled numerous iterations of the facade to be generated with inbuilt geometrical constraints that ensured the facade geometry would remain within a given range of complexity.
