    24X7@PHL: Codify



    “24X7ATPHL: Codify” is an investigation into the novel usage of time-based animation software and procedural modeling as a method for visualizing time-based quantitative data via the construction of a qualitative, two-dimensional rendering. Treated as an experiment in the extrusion and aggregation of time-based qualitative instances, “24X7ATPHL: Codify” slows down and composites the accumulated information of seven days traffic (customer pickup and drop off) at an international airport; visualizing information in such a way as to not only notate the generations and changes in patterns, but also to show the beauty that can be found in data while unlocking the emergent potential for design. “Codify” makes use of the accumulation of NURBS geometries as a methodology for understanding the specific conditions of movement created by the interaction of existing architecture and user, the results of which are currently being used to develop everything from the design of several furniture pieces to that of a new cladding system for the Philadelphia International Airport.
