Daniel Brown and Procedural Cities

Daniel Brown and Procedural Cities

Wired did a beautiful piece on the wonderful procedural works of Daniel Brown – renown designer and digital artist.

Daniel Brown is a well-known artist, who has worked on a number of projects. He started to experiment with digital procedural art back in 2003. Generative approach to design allows him to use a special algorithm, which can generate huge cities or other fractal stuff. Daniel works with different themes and topics, creating cities inspired by modern architecture or Middle Eastern designs.

I set about programming algorithms to generate an imaginary city. One that I could populate with buildings and structures without having to draw or 3-D model. It gives me an opportunity to kind of feel that wonderful sense of discovery and achievement. So instead of climbing a mountain, I’m mining this mathematical space looking for the same thing—that beautiful destination that nobody’s ever heard of or seen before.
