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.
These amazing parametric designs are a Kinetic art, Perpetual motion and a Marble Machine designed by veproject1.
This parametric design video is about: The Hyphae Lamp – a new series of algorithmically generated lighting designs by Nervous System. Each lamp is individually grown through a process based on leaf vein formation. No two lamps are alike.
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.
In collaboration with Microsoft, Momentum the Kinetic Sculpture is now on permanent display at the Microsoft Theater. It made of locally sourced ash wood. Inspired by the Microsoft logo, the robotic sculpture is made up of 80 Ultramotion motors and 160 wooden tiles.
An amazing example of parametric design are Kinetic Sculptures. For the breath taking technology that combines the latest findings of engineering with the most innovative forms of arts.
In this parametric design video you can see VT Pro Design’s Kinetic Wall. Getting up close and personal with VT Pro Design’s Kinetic Wall at the first of the Future Forward events in New York City, we check out how this “hybrid” living wall, inspired by the all-new Prius’s eco-heritage, springs to life
Since its first participation in a Universal Exhibition (Philadelphia in 1876), Mexico has always delivered an impressive pavilion that captures the imagination. The fundamental theme of Expo Milano 2015 is sustainability, being as much a driving principle for feeding the world’s population, as a criteria for architectural design, in terms of eco-friendly materials, ease …
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.
This book covers new materials and design methods, advances in computational design practices, innovations in building technologies and construction techniques, and the integration of research with design.
The Shed’s concept is simple: It’s the 120-foot tall building that moves. This idea is both its architectural hallmark and its metaphor for the future of culture.
Technical Paper by Mina Konakovic, Keenan Crane, Bailin Deng, Sofien Bouaziz, Daniel Piker, Mark Pauly presents a computational method for interactive 3D design and rationalization of surfaces via auxetic materials, i.e., flat flexible material that can stretch uniformly up to a certain extent.
The fluid geometric form is articulated as a series of alternating CNC milled birch plywood ribs which are pre-fabricated into modular units and spray finished with a clear lacquer. These units are hung on a series of z-clips bolted to the interior wall, and held in place by self-weight.
Imagine being able to design your optimal solution without using a single CAD operation. Now imagine being able to evaluate hundreds of viable options rather than a single design. That’s the power of generative design.
Design and fabrication of a laser cut small parametric chair with rhino and grasshopper
The Moses Mabhida Stadium by GMP Architekten is located in a sporting precinct in Durban on the shore of the Indian ocean and features a 105-metre arch that rises over the circular stadium. The arch is connected by cable system to the external edges of the roof, carrying the weight of the roof’s inner membrane.
In this Architecture Design Video, we are covering 5 Parametric Buildings: 1- Harbin Opera House 2- The Street Building 3- Elbphilharmonie Hamburg 4-Museo Soumaya 5-The Broad Museum
The precise technology behind Luminous Patterns allows us to break away from previous design limitations.
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.
Harvard researchers have developed a general framework to design reconfigurable metamaterials. The design strategy is scale independent, meaning it can be applied to everything from meter-scale architectures to reconfigurable nano-scale systems such as photonic crystals, waveguides and metamaterials to guide heat.
This parametric design video is about Branch Technology and Thornton Tomasetti’s Core Studio creating the world’s largest 3D printed structure for OneCity in Nashville, TN.
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.

This is a video by Hojoo Lee showing complex analysis meets minimal surfaces. In mathematics, a minimal surface is a surface that locally minimizes its area. This is equivalent to having zero mean curvature.The term “minimal surface” is used because these surfaces originally arose as surfaces that minimized total surface area subject to some constraint.
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).
