The main idea is to create modular reconfiguration parametric system which allows to create changable structures from series of benches depending on particular scenario. The relative position of the elements is determined by the hexagonal grid that forms a network of cells. Each cell consists of two types of modules: the angular and intermediate.
The main algorithm of the developed system allows to deform the geometry of the grid keeping all the edge sections constant in sizes. An additional algorithm gives the ability to filter out non-relevant by the area cells. This allows to limit the size of the modules. The assembling system of elements is for the gradual installation of elements according to the axes. The developed algorithm creates the cavities inside the modules which facilitates the design and reduces the cost of the material.
Thus, due to the same junctions and streamlining of the modules size the system allows many variations of relative positions of modules creating different scenarios of reconfiguration of public space depending on the event.
