Algorithm by Dimitris Ladopoulos

Algorithm by Dimitris Ladopoulos

What it could be some very futuristic architecture planning, meet the “Algorithm” series by the Greek art director and visual artist Dimitris Ladopoulos developing a procedural algorithm designed to produce random geometric patterns in Houdini 3D. Additional artwork by Dimitris can be found on Behance.

The inspiration came from the type of diagrams called ‘treemaps’. I implemented a procedure in Houdini, that takes a rectangle and splits it vertically and then horizontally. The number of splits is randomly selected from a given max. The outcome is fed to the loop, again and again, depending on the number of user-defined iterations. A seed value and slight alterations of the algorithm produce a variety of results.
