In the design research model, the proposed structure of errors consists of the cellular system and the multigrid. Like in nature, matter is distributed
and is fastened together by the interaction between cells. A cellular automaton model is used to guide the formations around the differential and multi-part grid, creating point clouds, which will be meshed to provide topology and space. Instead of the Cartesian grid a more rotational, multipolar grid is introduced which is also extended in a proliferation of polar arrays and their in between Boolean operation. By subdivisions
of the perfect volumes, we are found in front of a new multi-polar, multi-scale, subdivided grid.


Gaudi's Sagrada Familia is used as an example model for investigating the complexity of form emerging through perfect polar geometries and intersections of simple ruled surfaces that become subdivisions, increasing detail and resolution. (Burry, Burry, 2012) This research attempts to revisit the connection between the use of absolute geometries, symmetries, and Boolean operations. Their distortions become "decorative elements", elements of complexity production and real-time matter distribution, displayed in a series of new prototypes, virtual and physical that examine error and randomness as a convolution primary ingredient. Boolean operation acts as an agent of complexity, sub-division, inward
self-repetition, it sculpts the surfaces, it readjusts the topology of the design object.
