TESSELLATION PLANNING
Anew way for sub division of landfor better social, environmental andaesthetics.To tessellate means tocover a plane with a patternwithout having any gap oroverlap.
For centuries artists and craftsmen have used tessellation as a tool to create visual effectson surfaces.Tiling is the most common form of tessellation, and in its simplest form the tiles are regularpolygons.Planning elements necessary to form asmall communityis created by tessellating themother-tiles to form a hexagon.Community space is createdin the middle, surrounded by the houses.The road accesses the individual units internally and creates an extremelyefficientcirculation system.Aspatial boundaryis created along with a central area that can become the communalfocus, and thus providing asense of entryinto this place.Organic Layoutsare created as a result of the repetitive and clustering layouts.
 
Tessellation planning traces back to a period in the geometric structures like theziggurats of Mesopotamia or pyramids of EgyptNeed toinstill it in modern dayplanning process evolved with the new definition as given byArchitect Mazlin Ghazali Tessellation planning, or more specifically Honeycomb Housing (in terms of residential typology of use), has an additive base of:
Mathematics: to support the geometry, layout and the desired dwelling unit density.(QUANTITATIVE)
Socio-cultural aspects: of space and relative proxemics, human psychology and ethnic grouping.(QUALITATIVE)While planning, the second factor is derived based ontrial and error methodology(though research is ongoing to formulatesoftwares for this purpose) and then the first factor is stretched and relaxed accordingly, to conform to the second factor.
