The Subdivided Columns project explores the use of algorithms to develop a new language of form. The columns are produced using customized subdivision processes. The allure of these processes is that despite using a very simple input, they can produce something that is extraordinarily complex. 
In the case of these column prototypes, the input is an abstracted doric column. The process functions by taking each face (or facet) of this doric column and dividing it into four faces. The new faces in turn are further divided again and again until the final form emerges: an intricate column made of 16 million faces. 
Each subdivision step adds further levels of detail (or "information") to the form. The first steps of the process influence the overall shape and its curvature, the next steps determine the surface development, while the final steps generate a minuscule texture on top of the broader surfaces.
