Transformations and Base Shape Analysis

Student: Maria Lara Miro


Topic Description

Principal aim is to develop the mathematical foundation for a more intuitive yet procedural approach to the computational design of free-form shapes. In particular, a novel approach to the base shape analysis of a given shape will be investigated, that is, to a decomposition of the shape into geometrically meaningful “base shapes” that provides geometric insight and hence lends itself to an intuitive refinement of a design while preserving geometric structure.


This topic is supervised by a team of 3 supervisors. Lead supervisor is Udo Hertrich-Jeromin (Institute of Discrete Mathematics and Geometry). Additional supervisor is Florian Rist (Institute of Art and Design).
