It’s always interesting to observe the magnetic fields and experiments in this regard. Here is a collection of all the ways to observe the secret and invisible side of magnets.
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
This parametric design video is about Adaptive Skin by Stefano Arrighi. A responsive 3d model representing the behavior of the adaptive skin according to the incidence of the sun’s rays.
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?
In this Parametric design video you can see: the Nanoleaf Aurora digital lighting system combines LED color effects with a sophisticated design, easy installation and absolute modularity.
This shingled timber pavilion was created by masters students on ETH Zurich’s Digital Fabrication course, who developed robotic fabrication techniques to minimise the waste involved in its construction.
Dezeen looks behind the scenes at the factory where the fibreglass blocks that comprise BIG’s Serpentine Gallery Pavilion were made in this exclusive video produced for composite profile manufacturer Fiberline.
The Moses Mabhida Stadium by GMP Architekten is located in a sporting precinct in Durban on the shore of the Indian ocean and features a 105-metre arch that rises over the circular stadium. The arch is connected by cable system to the external edges of the roof, carrying the weight of the roof’s inner membrane.
This parametric design video is about Nervous System, a Generative Design Studio. These generative design pieces, discovered by The Grommet, are inspired by the science of nature and created with 3d-printing or laser cutting technology.
In this parametric design video you can see 9 amazing magnet gadgets.
Oddly satisfying scientific curiosities featuring various engines with candles, ferrofluid toys, kinetic art that uses physics, optical illusions, various forms of dices, math toys/shapes and more mindblowing stuff!
The Computational Design program takes a computer science view of design, applying both the science and art of computing to design problems, in relation to creation, presentation, analysis, evaluation, interaction or aesthetic expression; in real and imagined applications, both perceived and conceived.
Just Playing around with Rhinoceros+Grasshopper to make a parametric spinner
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.
Petit Pli constructs the most advanced technical children’s clothing in the world. Petit Pli’s recycled, versatile & rainproof garments are embedded with a patent pending structure that allows them to grow bi-directionally to custom fit children from 9 months to 4 years of age.
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.
Are interactive murals the future of street art? You can change responsive murals with the touch of a hand.
This is a video by Hojoo Lee showing complex analysis meets minimal surfaces. In mathematics, a minimal surface is a surface that locally minimizes its area. This is equivalent to having zero mean curvature.The term “minimal surface” is used because these surfaces originally arose as surfaces that minimized total surface area subject to some constraint.
Deployable structure composed of smart materials based actuators can reconcile its inherently conflicting requirements of low mass, good shape adaptability, and high load-bearing capability. This work describes the fabrication of deployable structures using smart soft composite actuators combining a soft matrix with variable stiffness properties and hinge-like movement through a rigid skeleton.
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 architecture project we are taking a look at the Aqua Tower as an example for the Architecture design section. Aqua is an 82-story mixed-use residential skyscraper in the Lakeshore East development in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Designed by a team led by Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects, with James Loewenberg of Loewenberg & Associates as the Architect of Record
Architecture in Space is entering a new era. It is over 40 years now since the late Neil Armstrong became …
You can see bigger versions of this scientific parametric design in museums and science departments. But we think this might be the first time it has been produced as an affordable table-top demonstration. Fifteen ball bearings hang from a frame, suspended on fine threads.
This parametric design video shows robotic milling (using the Kuka PRC plugin) from Firefly’s audio analytic tools. The waveform was milled by turning an MDF panel. The higher the volume is, deeper the tool goes.
This is a simple step by step instruction of how to build the Dune shelf.
