This parametric design video is about reaction-diffusion. Reaction-diffusion (RD) is a canonical example of complex behavior that emerges from a simple set of rules. RD models a set of substances that are diffusing, or spreading; these substances also react with one another to create new substances.
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.
This parametric design video is about Metamaterial Textures which is a research project from the Hasso Plattner Institute, published at CHI 2018. Metamaterial textures are integrated into 3D printed objects and allow designing how the object interacts with the environment and the user’s tactile sense.
Just Playing around with Rhinoceros+Grasshopper to make a parametric spinner
Deployable structure composed of smart materials based actuators can reconcile its inherently conflicting requirements of low mass, good shape adaptability, and high load-bearing capability. This work describes the fabrication of deployable structures using smart soft composite actuators combining a soft matrix with variable stiffness properties and hinge-like movement through a rigid skeleton.
This parametric design video is about Radiolaria – a bio-inspired design app by Nervous System. Radiolaria lets you manipulate a web of connected cells to create a huge variety of biologically-inspired patterns. Each object you create starts as a basic hexagonal mesh which you can change as much, or as little, as you want with a variety of tools.
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.
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.
Making of scroll saw fretwork ornament “Art Deco Shadow Box” of painted MDF 3 mm by Alex Fox
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!
Tiny robots activated by magnetic fields may be used in future biomedical procedures.
Things aren’t always what they seem . . . or are they? Extreme close-ups often obscure the full picture. Cloaked in mystery, this new video introduces a variety of objects and moments — found at MIT — that invite you to take a second look.
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 3D façade concept for individual architectural solutions. For the first time, a complex façade geometry is possible with standardised profiles and connectors.
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.
Collaborative Project for Architecture Design Studio IV to create a smart kinetic facade programmed with Arduino Uno. Solar Cell is a prototype for a modular system involving the facade. Kennesaw State University Architecture.
Under the title ‘Grown in Britain & Northern Ireland’, the UK’s response to the Milan Expo’s theme ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life’ is a 1,910 square metre Pavilion boasting an impressive design and complex structure, successfully delivered by creative construction and manufacturing company Stage One.(More)
This parametric design video is about Firefly + Arduino 3d Clay Printer, Fall 2013, California College of the Arts Architecture Advanced Options Studio
Theme “Harmonious Diversity“ The Concept Japan joins Expo Milano 2015 with the aim of proposing its food culture as an example of a healthy, sustainable and balanced diet, and as a model that can alleviate the problems of hunger and global ecology. By the same token, it also sees this event as the perfect opportunity for promoting its image following the …
Designers developed an interactive design system that allows non-expert users to create animated mechanical characters. Given an articulated character as input, the user iteratively creates an animation by sketching motion curves indicating how different parts of the character should move.
Parametric Design video tutorial: assembly of the EDISON laser-cut pendant lamp. In this video, you learn how to make a simple laser-cut lamp and how to assemble it. This design can be simply changed by polar arrayed parametric curve .
This parametric design video is about the future of architecture: 3d printed buildings. 3D printing has the potential to revolutionize the way humans manufacture and build things, from the small scale to the very large. By combining robots with 3D printing, KUKA partner Branch Technology, working with the architects at Gould Turner Group
