This parametric design video is about Wind Arbor by Ned Kahn on the western façade of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. which consists of over 260,000 aluminum “flappers”, blankets the hotel atrium’s external glass wall, creating a shimmering façade that responds to the environment.
The Parametric Designed facade of the Randall museum is amazing. the sculpture installation on the wall of the Randall Museum in Corona Heights, San Francisco rotates with the wind and gives the building a dynamic look!
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.
This Parametric Design video is about The Zinnia, a wooden kinetic sculpture designed by Clayton Boyer, built by Joe Stubler. The kinetic sculpture is made of two parts which rotate in opposite directions and with different speeds.
Architecture Design : the UK pavilion at Expo 2010, colloquially known as the Seed Cathedral, was a sculpture structure built by a nine-member conglomeration of British business and government resources directed by designer Thomas Heatherwick.
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 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.
This parametric design video is about iluma. iluma has a facade of jewelled polycarbonate cells that glitter in the day and glow in the night. The facade is a canvas for media artist to display their works. with a budget of SGD 100 million, the country’s first urban entertainment centre is targeted at the young professionals in their 20s and 30s. the mall is able to cater for up to 60 – 80 thousand consumers on a daily basis.
First inspired by the mysterious and mathematical qualities of a caterpillars crawl, artist Reuben Margolin creates large-scale kinetic sculptures that use pulleys and motors to recreate the complex movements and structures we see in nature.
The purpose of this research is to assess daylight performance of buildings with climatic responsive envelopes with complex geometry that integrates shading devices in the façade. To this end two case studies are chosen due to their complex geometries and integrated daylight devices. The effect of different parameters of the daylight devices is analysed through Climate base daylight metrics (CBDM).
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.
Architecture in Space is entering a new era. It is over 40 years now since the late Neil Armstrong became …
This paper introduces an intuitive method for the modelling of free-form architecture with planar facets. The method, called Marionette by the authors, takes its inspiration from descriptive geometry and allows one to design complex shapes with one projection and the control of elevation curves.
This Paramertric Design video is about how to make 3d printed parametric planters with Rhino 3d + a plugin called grasshopper
This private astronomical observatory is located on a remote mountain summit in central New Hampshire. The site is characterized by granite outcroppings and is situated at the center of a three-mile radius “dark” landscape with very little light pollution to obstruct astronomical viewing. Gemma’s design rejects a traditional dome in favor of a synthesized architectural form
There is a demand for mass-customized.architectural elements. Roboforming is an …
Design and fabrication of a laser cut small parametric chair with rhino and grasshopper
There is a shift in thinking about how cities are being planned and built. Generative design and robotics help pull a design from a digital model to a real-world finished artifact.
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.
In this design activity, students designed a deployable (retractable) pavilion, a self-standing shell structure that is capable of altering from a very compact arrangement to an expanded configuration. To respond to changing scale, the structure obtains a transformational capacity that is provided through built-in mobility.
Rhynamo is an open source plugin for connecting Rhino to Dynamo and Revit. Rhynamo uses OpenNURBS to help designers translate geometry and data for use in a BIM workflow.
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.
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”.
