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!
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
Technical Paper by Mina Konakovic, Keenan Crane, Bailin Deng, Sofien Bouaziz, Daniel Piker, Mark Pauly presents a computational method for interactive 3D design and rationalization of surfaces via auxetic materials, i.e., flat flexible material that can stretch uniformly up to a certain extent.
In 6 months its shows were seen by 14 million people, two-thirds of all visitors to Expo. The video was clicked 800 thousand times on YouTube. The hashtag #treeoflife was more successful than #Christmastree. Just a few of the numbers that demonstrate the success of the Tree of Life. Like the Eiffel Tower, built for …
This book connects the different topics and professions involved in information technology approaches to architectural design, ranging from computer-aided design, building information modeling and programming to simulation, digital representation, augmented and virtual reality, digital fabrication and physical computation.
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.
Designers are becoming more directly involved in the fabrication process from the earliest stages of design. This book showcases the design and research work by some of the leading designers, makers and thinkers today.
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.
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.
The Burnham Centennial Committee, in collaboration with City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, Millenium Park Inc. and The Art Institute of Chicago, selected Pritzker Prize winning Zaha Hadid Architects to design a pavilion to commemorate the centennial of Burnham’s Plan for Chicago.
In this Architecture Design Video, we are covering 5 Parametric Buildings: 1- Harbin Opera House 2- The Street Building 3- Elbphilharmonie Hamburg 4-Museo Soumaya 5-The Broad Museum
The Hyposurface is comprised by a matrix of actuators, which are given positional information via a highly efficient bus system as well as an array of electronic sensors used to trigger a variety of mathematical deployment programs.
Are interactive murals the future of street art? You can change responsive murals with the touch of a hand.
Parametric 3D façade concept for individual architectural solutions. For the first time, a complex façade geometry is possible with standardised profiles and connectors.
This book covers new materials and design methods, advances in computational design practices, innovations in building technologies and construction techniques, and the integration of research with design.
Diffusion Choir is a kinetic sculpture in Massachusetts that moves like a flock of birds. It’s comprised of 400 origami-like birds that perform a synchronized dance.
6 Amazing Science Experiments with Magnets and other to do at home.
Time-lapse build of the geometric hexagonal Coffee Table I made using off-cuts and scrap wood.
Recently we assisted RMIT’s Spacial Information Architecture Laboratory with some work to their prototype pods! All these uniquely shaped oculi are all formed with the same mould then individually robotically trimmed (SprutCAM Robot) following a mathematically calculated curve to precisely fit the sheet metal frame when distorted!
In this parametric design video inspired by the beauty of lines and patterns of origami folds, I created a few models using 3Ds max and printed them on a 3D printer.
Today, with the advent of digital media technologies and the ability to conceptualize, express and produce complex forms using digital means, the question of the
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.
The object of this parametric design was to produce an Automata that was inspired by the work of Reuben Margolin. All components were hand made the aim was to recreate the reaction of droplet as it impacts a body of water
The design chosen for the Italy Pavilion is the result of an international design competition awarded by Expo 2015 SpA in May, 2013; among 68 participants Nemesi won the competition with Proger and BMS for the engineering and with Prof. Eng. Livio De Santoli for the sustainability. The Italy Pavilion consists of the permanent building …
