Manufacturing of a pendant lamp from the collection Swing: lovingly handcrafted by the designers from dreizehngrad
Living Form – Expanding Fabric Dome for Centre Georges Pompidou by Chuck Hoberman
Designed by MIT researchers and Known as M-Blocks, these self assembling robots are cubes with no external moving parts. Nonetheless, they’re able to climb over and around one another, leap through the air, roll across the ground, and even move while suspended upside down from metallic surfaces.
Latest captioned parametric design movie features modular structures designed by Ten Fold Engineering, which can be transported anywhere on a lorry and self-deployed at the touch of a button. Here are ten of the best including projects with sliding walls, kinetic facades and rotating houses.
Deployable structures are a good example of a dynamic parametric design! A short video highlighting some of the first-semester work at University of Westminster School of Architecture.
In this parametric design video you can see a model designed by Matthias Danzmayr for a kinetic facade.
Kinetic Art & Architecture : The elements consist of three straight line segments that are conjoined like a Z with 90 degree angles. Alternating them on the axle in a mirrored position makes the two helixes twist in opposite direction.
Buitink Technology supplied and assembled a textile facade for the renovation of Markant in Uden. Buitink Technology cooperated with Herman Hertzberger. The textile facade is made of two membranes, each about 70 m long and 6 m height, tensed all around inside an aluminum structure.
This parametric design video is about “Kinetic Rain” art installation at the Changi International Airport in Singapore. The sculpture was commissioned by Changi Airport Group Singapore in 2012 as part of refurbishment efforts of Terminal 1. It stands as the largest kinetic art sculpture in the world.
At the time when he was an architecture student, Tyler Short developed a kinetic blinds concept that follows the sun throughout the day.
In this parametric design video you can see that researchers at the the technical school ETH Zurich have constructed a unique lightweight concrete ceiling by mixing computational design, 3D printing and prefabrication.
WOOD PERFORMATIVE GRIDSHELL – Cantiere Didattico Sperimentale 2012 – 2013
Responsabile Scientifico Prof. arch. Luigi Alini
A pavilion integrated into the boardwalk sequence provides shelter for open-air classrooms on the site. Inspired by the tortoise shell, its laminated structure consists of prefabricated, bent-wood members and a series of interconnected fiberglass pods that give global curvature to the surface.
The research team has utilized origami as inspiration for a thermally insulated rigid wall deployable shelter that can be erected manually through counterweighting. This paper presents a multiobjective shape optimization methodology which balances the priorities of structural performance (i.e., minimum deflections) and energy efficiency (i.e., minimum thermal energy load).

Theme: “Different Ways of Producing and Providing Food” Concept How can we feed the world, today and tomorrow? How can we ensure adequate food for mankind that is of good quality and healthy in the long term? France is focusing on this central issue posed by Expo Milano 2015, with a commitment to participate fully in the discussion, providing answers based on its capabilities and …
This parametric design video is about Metamaterial Textures which is a research project from the Hasso Plattner Institute, published at CHI 2018. Metamaterial textures are integrated into 3D printed objects and allow designing how the object interacts with the environment and the user’s tactile sense.
Architectural designs are frequently represented digitally as plane-faced meshes, yet these can be challenging to translate into built structures. Offsetting operations may be used to give thickness to meshes, and are produced by offsetting the faces, edges, or vertices of the mesh in an appropriately defined normal direction.
Latest explorations in testing the ABB IRB6700-200 Robot named Lola.
This paper presents the application of multi-objective genetic algorithms for holistic building design that considers multiple criteria; building energy use, capital cost, daylight distribution and thermal indoor environment. The optimization focus is related to building envelope parameters.
In this parametric design video you can see that Nervous System has created the first dress with Kinematics, their unique 4D printing system that creates complex, foldable forms composed of articulated modules. The Museum of Modern Art has acquired the dress along with the software that created it for their permanent collection.
This is a video by Ahmad Rafsanjani showing buckling-Induced Kirigami Physical Review. Kirigami is a variation of origami that includes cutting of the paper, rather than solely folding the paper as is the case with origami, but typically does not use glue.Typically, kirigami starts with a folded base,
