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.
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.
In this parametric design video Mr. Mind Blow is bringing you AMAZING SCIENCE Toys/Gadgets! Sit back and relax. Enjoy 10 minutes of oddly satisfying scientific curiosities feauturing various engines with candles, ferrofluid toys, kinetic art that uses physics, optical illusions, various forms of dices, math toys/shapes and more mindblowing stuff!
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.
First inspired by the mysterious and mathematical qualities of a caterpillars crawl, artist Reuben Margolin creates large-scale kinetic sculptures that use pulleys and motors to recreate the complex movements and structures we see in nature.
This parametric design video is about "Kinetic Rain" art installation at the Changi International Airport in Singapore. The sculpture was commissioned by Changi Airport Group Singapore in 2012 as part of refurbishment efforts of Terminal 1. It stands as the largest kinetic art sculpture in the world.
