The triangle is the basic element used in a computer to model shapes.  This is part of a process called freeform surface modeling.  Triangles can be used to model properties of materials so that surfaces can be reflective in one place and transparent in another.  They can also be used to model shape.  By using randomness, a fractal surface can be built that mimics the cragginess of a mountain peak.  This is how, for example, mountains are simulated for movies.  Our project, only partially completed, is the design of the stage, audience and roof above the outdoor theater.  The audience area is a triangular shape that accommodates roughly 75 seats.  The roof covering the stage will span from the inner circle of tree trunks to the southern wall of the garden, covering the audience and stage.

In our design, we begin with a basic truss support system to ensure that the roof is stable.  We then improvise with smaller triangles to realize a variety of shapes.  The truss structure is architectural in nature; the smaller triangles can be improvised as the design is built allowing different shapes to be realized.  This is where the science meets the art.
