This was a student project by David Thrasher for Stephen Turk's ARCH 442 course, Winter 2007.
"Replace the Columbus city center mall with a hotel/casino. An extensive study of cellular automata lead to the realization that correct placement of objects can cause life or death to an object in a field. Multiple landscapes are created for the user. These new landscapes create new experiential fields in which programmatic objects can inhabit according to the experience intended. The coexistence of path/entry/structure amalgamate to metamorphose the building into a new iconic billboard for the city, while at the same time at the street scale a new retail street-scape destination is created." - David Thrasher
