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.
German engineer Stefan Lehnert has pioneered the use of ethylene tetrafluoroethylene ─ a highly durable, light and adaptable plastic ─ in architecture. The roof and cladding system he invented, based on plastic cushions filled with air, is energy efficient and able to withstand high impact.
Philips, the global leader in lighting, and the German soccer champion presented a new LED façade lighting at the Allianz Arena for the first time on.The entire innovative Philips system can be controlled digitally and is capable of reproducing 16 million colors.
There is a demand for mass-customized.architectural elements. Roboforming is an …
In this parametric design video a few Kinetic sculptures will show you the art of motion.
Sigrid Adriaenssens and Branko Glisic co-taught a course on German thin-shell structures at Princeton University that has resulted in a new exhibit, “Evolution of German Shells: Efficiency in Form.” The exhibit is on view on the Princeton campus in the Friend Center Engineering Library.
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.
Deployable structures are a good example of a dynamic parametric design! A short video highlighting some of the first-semester work at University of Westminster School of Architecture.
In this parametric design video Autodesk research teams explore ways to optimize the design of airplane seat frames in order to reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.
Time-lapse build of the geometric hexagonal Coffee Table I made using off-cuts and scrap wood.
In this parametric design video find out how we are using the BigRep ONE to 3D Print large scale furniture in one piece. Our 3D Designer Beatrice Müller is using the BigRep ONE to 3D Print Large Furniture, almost in one piece, only adding the padding afterwards. Firms across industries use BigRep’s large-format industrial 3D printer technology to reduce costs, develop better products and get to market quicker.
This paper investigates the identification of the PV blinds’ optimal design parametersbased on a cost-benefit approach. A methodology, that encompasses thermal comfort, visual comfort,and energy savings requirements while resolving the conflicting issues resulting from the fulfillment ofthese requirements, is highlighted.
This paper presents the application of multi-objective genetic algorithms for holistic building design that considers multiple criteria; building energy use, capital cost, daylight distribution and thermal indoor environment. The optimization focus is related to building envelope parameters.
Kinetic Art & Architecture : The elements consist of three straight line segments that are conjoined like a Z with 90 degree angles. Alternating them on the axle in a mirrored position makes the two helixes twist in opposite direction.
A continuous line of plastic makes up this intricate robot-built chair, designed using a new 3D-printing software by a team from the Bartlett School of Architecture in London. The Bartlett’s Design Computation Lab (DCL), a part of University College London, created the software to open up new possibilities for 3D printing.
Sit back and relax. Enjoy 10 minutes of 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!
Parametric bench designed by Victor Meshkov and MehDesign. The plywood was 21 mm thick. For protection….
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 video watch how Under Armour uses new generative design technology to drive innovation and create the world’s first 3D printed performance athletic shoe in the highly competitive athletic wear market.
This parametric design video is about LOTUS. Interactive art wall Lotus by artist Daan Roosegaarde is a living wall made out of smart foils which fold open in response to human behavior. Walking by Lotus, hundreds of aluminium foils unfold themselves in an organic way.
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.
Compilations of ten materialized artworks by legendary Zaha Hadid (1950-2016) across the planet.
This parametric design video is about Firefly + Arduino 3d Clay Printer, Fall 2013, California College of the Arts Architecture Advanced Options Studio
This Paramertric Design video is about Somerville MA’s Jewelry, furniture, and lamp design studio, Nervous System, creates software to allow you to create your own.
