Asterisk is a Thornton Tomasetti | CORE studio project.

Developed by CORE studio, Asterisk is a web application for rapid structural optioneering in early conceptual design. Simply upload a mass and core model from the Rhino client, adjust a few parameters, and Asterisk returns a concept-level wireframe in a matter of seconds. Users can create iterations, explore and filter design spaces, and compare the performance metrics of select sets. Asterisk is a collaborative platform in which project teams can create, review and present design spaces across multiple mediums.

My role in the project has been focused around developing the geometry backend service that turns volumetric massing models into structural wireframes and compute neccessary geometric information (see images below).
