Drawing the Barcelona Pavillion - I

The first assignment I was given in architecture school was to construct Mies Van der Rohe's Barcelona Pavilion in Rhinoceros 5.0. Within weeks I found myself completely immersed in the surreal world of Rhino - spending up to 18 hours a day inside the software - and losing awareness of my physical state. I became curious to identify how certain digital work-flows physically manifested within my body's movements, so I constructed a simple drawing machine to notate my hand movements while completing different tasks with a variety of softwares: Rhino, Photoshop, Microsoft Word, and - for contrast- pen on paper.

Every five seconds, all geometry within rhino will be duplicated, baked, moved, and placed on a hidden layer with a slightly lighter shade of grey. This palimpsestic script was written in order to preserve the construction lines and rhino commands used during the process of building a simulacrum of the Barcelona Pavilion in Rhinoceros 5.0, as a way of cataloguing and revealing often obscured processes that contribute to a final product - the architectural drawing.
