Curve/Division/Divide Length

The Divide Length tool is used to divide a curve into segments of a predetermined length. The C variable is the curve that you are wanting to divide and the L variable is the length of each division (determined by a slider). P exports the coordinates of each division point, which I used to draw a line to an arbitrary point that I placed.

The Lady Landfill Skyscraper was an eVolo entry in 2011 designed by Milorad Vidojevic, Jelena Pucarevic, and Milica Pihler. This project is meant to act as a garbage/recycling processing plant, but also to include housing to help alleviate overcrowded cities. I think this concept is interesting because it deals with various problems in today’s society in a unique way.

I find this project interesting because of how the water level is meant to change shape in order to maintain a consistent weight to volume ratio in order to stay afloat. The level changes in accordance to how much garbage is currently being stored or recycled in the lower to mid levels. It allows the interior of the building to always have a different view depending on how much water is currently inside.

The part of the building that floats above the surface creates a unique and almost iceberg-esque concept, with the majority of the building being below. This could make the housing units act more like a vacation resort than actual homes, depending on where the structure is located globally.
