Geocentric Design Code is a virtual template of universal geometry that is comprehensively applicable to a broad range of constructs and artifacts made integrable by reason of elemental spheres basing their patterns and centered on earth.
It all arose from a lifelong fascination with the shape of things – be they artificial, natural, or abstract. Of the latter type, I found a polyhedral form advanced by Buckminster Fuller to be especially interesting, to the extent of frequently applying its crystalline essence to paper dream houses while not otherwise engaged in global deep sea diving; higher academic studies; or an experimental lifestyle revolving around the bicycle.
A sense of geometric discord between 2 wheels at rest and architectural convention led to deeper scrutiny of the form. And alas, harmonious resolution to the narrow dilemma blossomed into a design framework pertaining to other building realms, the ground supporting them, and the alternative transporter modes of marine, air, and spacecraft.
Although the code is somewhat futuristic, much can presently be engaged by adventurous students of design whose creativities are joined by penchants for puzzle-solving toward the challenges of their particular fields and interests. So inclined, the code’s wholistic approach deeply attuned to the natural world it complements stands ready to help those who seek a healthier planet that supports life fuller and farther into the future.
Toward that end, the code’s 7 sequential parts are introduced via corresponding pages accessed on either the navigation or side bars. From these are links to relevant posts, galleries of concepts and applications, as well as PDFs intended for serious examination, reference, and application.
