Here I finished the concept; what if you could:

Take a roughback and various scraps of stone

Scan the surfaces

and then apply a texture pattern to the surface via a preconfigured script?

Cut panel geometry Video

I took a random pattern, and then applied several logical systems based in grasshopper to find out if I could generate a system that would look amazing over an entire facade, while using pieces that would be to small or two mis-shaped (waste pieces) to be used in traditional masonry construction.

It worked surprisingly well. at this point I will look to this texture generation for covering entire facades, but I don’t know if it would work only with stone. These elliot foam panels are quite rigid. I believe they could be used for formwork on large scale applications with the same intentions.
