We propose a model for segmentation problems involving an energy concentrated on the vertices of an unknown polyhedral set, where the contours of the images to be recovered have preferred directions and focal points. We prove that such an energy is obtained as a Γ-limit of functionals defined on sets with smooth boundary that involve curvature terms of the boundary. The minimizers of the limit functional are polygons with edges either parallel to some prescribed directions or pointing to some fixed points, that can also be taken as unknown of the problem.
