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.
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.
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.
This parametric design video is about a kinetic light art installation. The Crystal Lights Chandelier is an art installation for the Tsvetnoy Central Market, a new department store in central Moscow.
In this research thesis you can learn about parametric design and robotic construction through a few projects like: Pre-fabricated house, Façade prototype, 3d extruded structures, Trauma center and Innsbruck pavilions.
Architecture in Space is entering a new era. It is over 40 years now since the late Neil Armstrong became …
This Kinetic Architecture & Art Video will showcase some of the examples of Kinetic design in Art and Architecture. Albahar Tower, Kiefer Technic showroom, Arab world institute, Megafon Pavilion, South Korea Pavilion (Expo 2012), Media-tic Facade, Shanghai Theatre facade & Flare Facade are some of the examples of how kinetic design affect buildings.
In this parametric design video: The challenge? A generatively designed chair fabricated with wood & a CNC router. The result? A stronger, lighter, more comfortable chair.
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.
This is a simple step by step instruction of how to build the Dune shelf.
This Kinetic art object based on rotating squares by Klemens Torggler is a good example of how a parametric designed object can be used in our homes
This parametric design video will introduce the Trivol, the National Marine Museum, the Ecological Experience Center of the National Ecology Park, Di Arc, Lotte World Tower Podium and KEB Hana Bank, which are participated by Weed Works.
Recently we assisted RMIT’s Spacial Information Architecture Laboratory with some work to their prototype pods! All these uniquely shaped oculi are all formed with the same mould then individually robotically trimmed (SprutCAM Robot) following a mathematically calculated curve to precisely fit the sheet metal frame when distorted!
Manufacturing of a pendant lamp from the collection Swing: lovingly handcrafted by the designers from dreizehngrad
This parametric design video is about Nervous System, a Generative Design Studio. These generative design pieces, discovered by The Grommet, are inspired by the science of nature and created with 3d-printing or laser cutting technology.
ArboSkin is a Bioplastic Façade Research Project developed at ITKE (Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design) ,Institution that has many years of experience in teaching and research in the fields of computer based design, simulation, and production of cladding for buildings with complex geometries.
A pavilion integrated into the boardwalk sequence provides shelter for open-air classrooms on the site. Inspired by the tortoise shell, its laminated structure consists of prefabricated, bent-wood members and a series of interconnected fiberglass pods that give global curvature to the surface.
This parametric design video is about TELUS Sky, a 58-storey development in the 100 block of 7 Ave. S.W., will incorporate office space, retail stores and 341 residential rental suites.
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 parametric design video a few Kinetic sculptures will show you the art of motion.
A new specialist design role is emerging in the construction industry.
This book discusses analytical tools for designing energy efficient and lightweight structures that embody the concept of tensegrity. The book provides both static and dynamic analysis of special tensegrity structural concepts,
In this parametric design video designer Rick Tegelaar explains how the Meshmatics Chandelier he developed at university became a Moooi product in this movie in our Design Dreams series for the Dutch brand. Launched by Moooi at Milan design week in 2017, Tegelaar’s Meshmatics Chandelier is made from three concentric, inverted wire-mesh domes of different diameters and heights.
