I’m a computational designer. My main interest is Parametric Design and subjects such as parametric modeling of Islamic Patterns, Structural studies on parametric forms and also Automation in construction. I have tutored Grasshopper and Parametric Design for more than 300 architectural students including Architectural firms in Iran (ReNa , Diba, Fluid Motion) and famous Universities ( Tehran Uni, Shahid Beheshti, Elmosanat, Pars and Tabriz Uni) since 2010.

Study of Soh’s Shale Soil for use in Lightweight Building Materials
Plants are a group similar to buildings which use several techniques to maintain their stability. Their seeds are a specific part designed for reproduction with various methods associated with them. Some seeds are protected by shells and some are lightweight to allow the seed to move in the air easily. Dandelions and Goat’s Beards are two examples of plants using the lightweight technique to spread their seeds. The parachute-like attachment of their seeds is designed to lift easily by the wind. These attachments have a unique structure which resembles a structural lightweight shade. The parachute-like structure is made up of thin strands projecting from several radial horny stems. These stems are upward cantilever structures which their natural form will increase upward drift when the wind load is applied at the end of the stems while reversing the load’s direction gives a cantilever with a minimum vertical displacement under downward point load. In addition, the radial stems are prestressed by the strands. This research studies the structural behavior of parametric cantilevers arranged radially. The cantilever is defined by control points and the effect of moving the control point on the structural behavior of the cantilever is studied. Attached structures of Dandelion and Goat’s beard seeds and presents a lightweight system which imitates the techniques used in nature to produce pre-optimized lightweight structures.
Then I assigned a force at the end of the cantilever and studied it again!
