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
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 shows Aperactive (interactive aperture), by Hunter Ruthrauff, an interactive panel that opens based on user proximity. Its ability to be both opaque and transparent at the user’s discretion opens the doors to new possibilities to the relationship shared between private and public spaces.
In this parametric design video see how 3D Systems’ Janne Kyttanen utilizes the complex, optimized structures found only in nature with his latest creation: a 3D printed lattice structure lounger chair. Created in a single print on the ProX 950, this lounger represents the perfect marriage of form and function.
Time-lapse build of the geometric hexagonal Coffee Table I made using off-cuts and scrap wood.
This parametric design video is about TOP 10 3D Printed Creations; Walking Gyroscope, CNC Multi-Tool Machine, Cortex Cast, Dodecahedron Speaker, Forms In Nature Light, Toyota Replica Model, Local Motors Car, Jet Engine, Protohouse Scaled Model & Jin Hai Resort and Apartment Building
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.
In this parametric design video Mr. Mind Blow is bringing you AMAZING SCIENCE Toys/Gadgets! Sit back and relax. Enjoy 10 minutes of oddly satisfying scientific curiosities feauturing various engines with candles, ferrofluid toys, kinetic art that uses physics, optical illusions, various forms of dices, math toys/shapes and more mindblowing stuff!
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.
At the time when he was an architecture student, Tyler Short developed a kinetic blinds concept that follows the sun throughout the day.
Digital Manufacturing Ribs Lamp.
A parametric design for Metamaterials. Metamaterial Mechanisms is a research project from the Hasso Plattner Institute.A metamaterial is a material engineered to have a property that is not found in nature.
Latest explorations in testing the ABB IRB6700-200 Robot named Lola.
6 Amazing Science Experiments with Magnets and other to do at home.
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.
Over the last few months we’ve been publishing short movies about shape-shifting architecture on our Facebook page. Here are ten of the best including parametric design projects with sliding walls, kinetic facades and rotating houses.
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.
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.
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.
This parametric design video is about “Kinetic Rain” art installation at the Changi International Airport in Singapore. The sculpture was commissioned by Changi Airport Group Singapore in 2012 as part of refurbishment efforts of Terminal 1. It stands as the largest kinetic art sculpture in the world.
This is a parametric design video about white canvas. An immersive audiovisual installation created by Cocolab. Commissioned by ARCA, presenting at TagCDMX 2016.
Researchers have created a series of 4D-printed plastic objects that fold themselves into predetermined shapes when heated, which they believe could be scaled up to create flat-pack furniture.
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?
