Convex and Solid-Voids
Convex and Solid-Voids is a research project developed by the Design Computing Group at Faculty of Architecture, University of Lisbon.
Convex voids are 3d representations of open urban spaces auto-generated based on the input of surrounding buildings, topography and other urban limits. They are utilized to measure multiple morphological attributes regarding urban spaces and are aggregated to form Solid-Voids which act as containers for this data.
