By taking a Hyperbolic Helicoid and putting it through a Mobius Transformation, we can arrive at a beautiful form that seems to curtsy with grace. A careful arraying of this form can then lead to an incredible structure that is not only sinuous and mesmerizing but is also a testament to the intimate relationship that mathematics has with architecture. However, in a world consumed by ego, money, and fear, it is unlikely that this structure would ever leave its surreal canvas. Yet, a dismal situation is not fate! Childlike wonder and hope may yet liberate our architectural creation. It should be noted that Robert Fathauer's piece in the JMM 2022 Art Exhibition inspired Ross to develop an architectural space out of a Hyperbolic Helicoid.
This is the first work in a two-part series: Hyperbolic Helicoid and Child.
