Choice: Update

The architect's Newspaper recently posted the first architectural review of Choice restaurant on their site. The review focuses on the materiality of the space and features a brief conceptual quote from Evan Douglis.

Choice Dumbo, Open for Business

Choice Dumbo, a project I have worked on for 2 years at Evan Douglis Studio is now open for business.
I want to first say thank you to everyone who has contributed and pitched in their time and effort to make it happen.

The space features a custom produced modular ceiling interfaces with a series of hand made glass blown chandeliers, which were produced in Brooklyn. Below are a series of links which house some documentation of the project in a variety of media. Currently documentation on the web focuses on the food and restaurant end, however, documentation of the architecture of the space will be coming very soon.
In the mean time, check it out yourself at
108 Jay st. Brooklyn, NY, just off the York st. F stop.
The food is amazing and I hope you enjoy the space.

Randomly Evaluate N-gon

This processing application, originally developed for a geometrically packed particle system at Evan Douglis Studio, provides the user the ability to generate a point along a parametrically defined polygon by altering the source code. The class n-gon contained in the source code, provides the user 5 inputs
1&2) an origin "x" coordinate and "y" coordinate
3) the circumscribed radius of the polygon
4) the number of faces constructing the polygon
5) the unitized value (btw 0-1) of the polygon

The result is point evaluated along a mathematical polygon.

The application at the following link showcases the capabilities of the n-Gon's parameters.

A Rhinoscript version will be coming very soon.
