Dutch designer Lilian van Daal claims 3D-printing can replace traditional upholstery techniques to produce spongy-surfaced furniture in this parametric design movie filmed in Eindhoven. Van Daal is investigating alternative production methods for upholstered furniture, which is usually very resource-intensive to make
HypoSurface is parametric design of a dynamically reconfigurable interactive architectural surface The HypoSurface is currently being entirely redeveloped using electromagnetic actuators for the new National Museum of Energy (NME), Ponferrada, Spain.
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.
This experiment is the Chladni plate experiment. designer used a tone generator, a wave driver (speaker) and a metal plate attached to the speaker. First add sand to the plate then begin playing a tone.
USC School of Architecture ARCH 599 – Physical Computing Dynamic building facade parametric design
Reconfigurable materials and structures developed by Harvard researchers
The charm of a mysterious desert that captivated visitors, revealing its treasures to them. This was the spell cast by Kuwait, a small Middle Eastern State that successfully meets the challenges intrinsic to an environment so apparently barren, told in a majestic Pavilion located on the Decumanus between Germany and the United States. At the …
Under the title ‘Grown in Britain & Northern Ireland’, the UK’s response to the Milan Expo’s theme ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life’ is a 1,910 square metre Pavilion boasting an impressive design and complex structure, successfully delivered by creative construction and manufacturing company Stage One.(More)
In this parametric design video you can see VT Pro Design’s Kinetic Wall. Getting up close and personal with VT Pro Design’s Kinetic Wall at the first of the Future Forward events in New York City, we check out how this “hybrid” living wall, inspired by the all-new Prius’s eco-heritage, springs to life
This is a video about bridging parametric design with craft through algorithmic modularity. The digital design space, unlimited by its virtual freedom, differs from traditional craft, which is bounded by a fixed set of given materials.
In this parametric design video you can see: British sculpture artist Ivan Black is an artist with almost two decades of experience in constructing kinetic objects. He has a deep-rooted passion for kinetics and a talent for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. This gift is perfectly illustrated in Nebula Hive, a 1m high x 0.75m wide luminous vortex of kinetic energy that slowly transforms into countless celestial forms,
Navicula is derived from nature, in this case from one of the many microscopic diatoms that float around in the oceans. The flowing, segmented form is shipped as kitset and assembled on site with push-in nylon clips. The thin curved pieces of CNC-cut bamboo plywood create a flowing structure
Theme “Harmonious Diversity“ The Concept Japan joins Expo Milano 2015 with the aim of proposing its food culture as an example of a healthy, sustainable and balanced diet, and as a model that can alleviate the problems of hunger and global ecology. By the same token, it also sees this event as the perfect opportunity for promoting its image following the …
In this parametric design video you can see a model designed by Matthias Danzmayr for a kinetic facade.
This parametric design video is about a kinetic light art installation. The Crystal Lights Chandelier is an art installation for the Tsvetnoy Central Market, a new department store in central Moscow.
Georgia Tech researchers find ways to use Origami as the structural basis for real world applications such as deployable antennas and bridges.
This film was made by Ashok Rupner TATA Trust: Make a wonderful HYPERBOLA from straight sticks! This work was supported by IUCAA and Tata Trust. In geometry, a hyperboloid of revolution, sometimes called circular hyperboloid, is a surface that may be generated by rotating a hyperbola around one of its principal axes.
The new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home to the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United FC soccer team starting in 2017, is a state-of-the-art facility that will feature sweeping views of the Atlanta skyline; flexible capacity of up to 83,000 seats; a retractable roof inspired by the oculus in the ancient Roman Pantheon.
Octahedron by Alex Fox an amazing woodworking 3D Fretwork, a scroll saw project. In this video you can see the making (Cutting, finishing and assembling) of a geometric plywood sculpture.
In this parametric design video you can see: Kinetic proposal for the John Portman`s Bonaventure hotel, LA and Renaissance center, Detroit retrofitting facade in order to increase thermal performance of the building as well as dealing with the issue of privacy.
In this parametric video you can learn more about generative design. What if instead of using the computer to draw what you already know, you could tell the computer what you want to accomplish?
ArboSkin is a Bioplastic Façade Research Project developed at ITKE (Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design) ,Institution that has many years of experience in teaching and research in the fields of computer based design, simulation, and production of cladding for buildings with complex geometries.
