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.
