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 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.
Theme “El Amor de Chile “ The Concept From the Atacama Desert to Patagonia, from its central green valleys to its eastern islands, extreme geographical diversity is a key feature of Chile’s showcase at Expo Milano 2015. As a main attraction, the pavilion takes visitors on a journey to experience its different ecosystems, deserts, rivers, valleys and mountains, showing how life …
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.
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.
This parametric design video is about Adaptive Skin by Stefano Arrighi. A responsive 3d model representing the behavior of the adaptive skin according to the incidence of the sun’s rays.
Manufacturing of a pendant lamp from the collection Swing: lovingly handcrafted by the designers from dreizehngrad
This parametric design video is about Autodesk Generative Design. What if you can come up with thousands of options for a single design without drawing? This is generative design – harnessing massive computing power, achieving maximum performance while wasting nothing.
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.
Through the use of parametric scripting various panelized surface formations, panel configurations and patterns were studied for the facade. Ultimately, three profiled perforated metal panels were cut and broken into varying surface conditions and gradated onto the facade.
The first experimental pavilion, realized by the department of Biobased Materials and Material Cycles in Architecture (BioMat), located at the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE)
Dezeen looks behind the scenes at the factory where the fibreglass blocks that comprise BIG’s Serpentine Gallery Pavilion were made in this exclusive video produced for composite profile manufacturer Fiberline.
This parametric design video shows robotic milling (using the Kuka PRC plugin) from Firefly’s audio analytic tools. The waveform was milled by turning an MDF panel. The higher the volume is, deeper the tool goes.
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.
The United Arab Emirates pavilion at the 2015 Milan Expo opened today. Bringing the planning principles of the traditional desert city to Milan, the pavilion’s interior of self-shaded streets evokes the experience of the UAE’s ancient communities, while demonstrating the natural energy efficiency of their compact urban form.

This parametric design video is about Amazing Technology Invented By MIT. At the MIT Media Lab, the Tangible Media Group believes the future of computing is tactile. Unveiled today, the inFORM is MIT’s new scrying pool for imagining the interfaces of tomorrow. Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace
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 precise technology behind Luminous Patterns allows us to break away from previous design limitations.
This Paramertric Design video is about Cake “Lime-basil triangulation” The idea was to use geometrical shapes, connect the patisserie and the architecture, and make unique creations for SoGood
This Parametric Design video is about The Zinnia, a wooden kinetic sculpture designed by Clayton Boyer, built by Joe Stubler. The kinetic sculpture is made of two parts which rotate in opposite directions and with different speeds.
NASA is using origami to build a giant star blocker, in hopes of imaging distant worlds. “Origami, the Japanese tradition of paper-folding, has inspired a number of unique spacecraft designs. It’s little wonder that it fascinates NASA engineers: origami can seem deceptively simple, hiding complex math within its creases.”
This parametric design video is about generative design for fashion. This Fits Me is a system that allows people to design unique and personalised fashion through 3D body scanning and generative algorithms.
Make A Ripple (2017) is a custom kinetic sculpture. It consists of 60 moving elements that are interconnected with springs. The elements are counterbalanced rods with disks on the ends which can pivot freely on a kind of universal joint.
