This parametric design video was created for the purposes of the postgraduate course “Smart & Bioclimatic Design” at TU Delft, based on a research by Apostolina Karapanou: “Creating a living building, An Approach to Climate Adaptive Skins”.
In this parametric design video Autodesk research teams explore ways to optimize the design of airplane seat frames in order to reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.
Seismic Design for Architects shows how structural requirements for seismic resistance can become an integral part of the design process. A non-mathematical approach focuses upon the principles and practice of seismic resistant design to enable readers to grasp the concepts and then readily apply them to their building designs.
Parametric bench designed by Victor Meshkov and MehDesign. The plywood was 21 mm thick. For protection….
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.
Harvard researchers have developed a general framework to design reconfigurable metamaterials. The design strategy is scale independent, meaning it can be applied to everything from meter-scale architectures to reconfigurable nano-scale systems such as photonic crystals, waveguides and metamaterials to guide heat.
Philips, the global leader in lighting, and the German soccer champion presented a new LED façade lighting at the Allianz Arena for the first time on.The entire innovative Philips system can be controlled digitally and is capable of reproducing 16 million colors.
Manufacturing of a pendant lamp from the collection Swing: lovingly handcrafted by the designers from dreizehngrad
As the name implies, Lamina is a laminated constructed staircase, chiefly using plywood. Using the inherit strength of this material, the gently curved underside of the cantilevered treads blend gracefully into the vertical balusters.
This parametric design video is about reaction-diffusion. Reaction-diffusion (RD) is a canonical example of complex behavior that emerges from a simple set of rules. RD models a set of substances that are diffusing, or spreading; these substances also react with one another to create new substances.
What we need: 4.5 m of copper pipe with a diameter of 15 mm cut into 30 pieces of 15 cm,15 m of copper wire with a cross section of 2 mm
Through the use of parametric scripting various panelized surface formations, panel configurations and patterns were studied for the facade. Ultimately, three profiled perforated metal panels were cut and broken into varying surface conditions and gradated onto the facade.
In this video, we will exhibit 4 different Expo Pavilions which can inspire your design ideas and be a motivation for your design skills.
This parametric design video will introduce the Trivol, the National Marine Museum, the Ecological Experience Center of the National Ecology Park, Di Arc, Lotte World Tower Podium and KEB Hana Bank, which are participated by Weed Works.
Manuel Herz Architects has completed a housing block in Zurich, with dynamic facades that transform into balconies for its five apartments. On all four sides of the three-storey Ballet Mécanique, the walls on the two lowest levels are opened using
Bringing together experts from research and practice, Shell Structures for Architecture: Form Finding and Optimization presents contemporary design methods for shell and gridshell structures, covering form-finding and structural optimization techniques.
This book discusses analytical tools for designing energy efficient and lightweight structures that embody the concept of tensegrity. The book provides both static and dynamic analysis of special tensegrity structural concepts,
In this parametric design video you can see: how to cool a building without air conditioning, Using an approach called biomimicry, see how architect Mick Pearce harnessed the ingenuity of termites to design a natural cooling system for the largest commercial building in Zimbabwe.
In this parametric design video you can see: Gatorade built this technology from scratch just for an ad. 2,500 switches turn the water on and off, and motion capture tells it what to do. The results are incredible.
Reconfigurable materials and structures developed by Harvard researchers
Compilations of ten materialized artworks by legendary Zaha Hadid (1950-2016) across the planet.
This is a parametric design video showing a test we made on a Gererative interactive LED floor. LED interactive flooring which reacts when you walk over it.
Origami is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. But to engineer Mary Frecker of Pennsylvania State University, it is the future for designing tools that could be used in fields such as medicine and space exploration.
