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.
Nervous System is a design studio that works at the intersection of science, art, and technology. We create using a novel process that employs computer simulation to generate designs and digital fabrication to realize products.
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.
Interior Architecture : In this short video you can see the Parametric interior Design process for a waffle wooden structure. The process consists of designing the structure in Rhino and then the installation is started with connecting the parts together.
In this parametric design video you can see: Gatorade built this technology from scratch just for an ad. 2,500 switches turn the water on and off, and motion capture tells it what to do. The results are incredible.
Design process / Design wooden lamps build by cnc router. Supercone wood lamps. Design Lampen / Fräsen von Teilen für Designerlampen.
The research team has utilized origami as inspiration for a thermally insulated rigid wall deployable shelter that can be erected manually through counterweighting. This paper presents a multiobjective shape optimization methodology which balances the priorities of structural performance (i.e., minimum deflections) and energy efficiency (i.e., minimum thermal energy load).
This private astronomical observatory is located on a remote mountain summit in central New Hampshire. The site is characterized by granite outcroppings and is situated at the center of a three-mile radius “dark” landscape with very little light pollution to obstruct astronomical viewing. Gemma’s design rejects a traditional dome in favor of a synthesized architectural form
Flying through space and time using the new high speed camera
In this parametric video you can learn more about generative design. What if instead of using the computer to draw what you already know, you could tell the computer what you want to accomplish?
This film was made by Ashok Rupner TATA Trust: Make a wonderful HYPERBOLA from straight sticks! This work was supported by IUCAA and Tata Trust. In geometry, a hyperboloid of revolution, sometimes called circular hyperboloid, is a surface that may be generated by rotating a hyperbola around one of its principal axes.

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.
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.
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.
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.
The Computational Design program takes a computer science view of design, applying both the science and art of computing to design problems, in relation to creation, presentation, analysis, evaluation, interaction or aesthetic expression; in real and imagined applications, both perceived and conceived.
This is a parametric design video about white canvas. An immersive audiovisual installation created by Cocolab. Commissioned by ARCA, presenting at TagCDMX 2016.
This parametric design video is about Florida Polytechnic University. Designed by world-renowned architect, Santiago Calatrava, the Innovation, Science and Technology Building at Florida Polytechnic University is truly breathtaking and one of a kind.
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.
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.
Living Form – Expanding Fabric Dome for Centre Georges Pompidou by Chuck Hoberman
As the name implies, Lamina is a laminated constructed staircase, chiefly using plywood. Using the inherit strength of this material, the gently curved underside of the cantilevered treads blend gracefully into the vertical balusters.
Manuel Herz Architects has completed a housing block in Zurich, with dynamic facades that transform into balconies for its five apartments. On all four sides of the three-storey Ballet Mécanique, the walls on the two lowest levels are opened using
