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 is about Branch Technology and Thornton Tomasetti’s Core Studio creating the world’s largest 3D printed structure for OneCity in Nashville, TN.
Octahedron by Alex Fox an amazing woodworking 3D Fretwork, a scroll saw project. In this video you can see the making (Cutting, finishing and assembling) of a geometric plywood sculpture.
German engineer Stefan Lehnert has pioneered the use of ethylene tetrafluoroethylene ─ a highly durable, light and adaptable plastic ─ in architecture. The roof and cladding system he invented, based on plastic cushions filled with air, is energy efficient and able to withstand high impact.
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.
Located on the EXPO’s main street Decumano, the Russian pavilion is a 3,260 square meter building. The structure virtually repeats the given plot of land with an elongated and rather narrow parallelepiped configuration, thrusting forward a dynamic cantilever over the main entrance to the pavilion.(more)
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!
This thesis asks if and how we can design spaces of everyday life that not only satisfy a basic thermal need but also encourage occupant participation in the shaping of microclimates, promote thermally-based social cohesion, and do so using only on passive means.
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.
Tiny robots activated by magnetic fields may be used in future biomedical procedures.
In this parametric design video see how 3D Systems’ Janne Kyttanen utilizes the complex, optimized structures found only in nature with his latest creation: a 3D printed lattice structure lounger chair. Created in a single print on the ProX 950, this lounger represents the perfect marriage of form and function.
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.
Collaborative Project for Architecture Design Studio IV to create a smart kinetic facade programmed with Arduino Uno. Solar Cell is a prototype for a modular system involving the facade. Kennesaw State University Architecture.
Making of Zome lamp, behind the scenes of this fabulous design piece, fragile yet strong. The ethereal ZOME consists of identical fluid vermiforms – a sequence of dots that create a beautiful atmospheric lighting piece when assembled
Advancing Wood Architecture offers a comprehensive overview of the new architectural possibilities that are enabled by cutting-edge computational technologies in wood construction.
In this parametric design video you can see: Kinetic proposal for the John Portman`s Bonaventure hotel, LA and Renaissance center, Detroit retrofitting facade in order to increase thermal performance of the building as well as dealing with the issue of privacy.
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 a simple instruction of how to build the Comb shelf. The spherical shape of the design bookshelf COMB gently protrudes from the wall like a sculpture while offering a practical and eye-catching way to store and showcase items.
This parametric design video shows Aperactive (interactive aperture), by Hunter Ruthrauff, an interactive panel that opens based on user proximity. Its ability to be both opaque and transparent at the user’s discretion opens the doors to new possibilities to the relationship shared between private and public spaces.
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 Breaking Wave located in the Biogen Idec lobby. Breaking Wave is an anamorphic kinetic sculpture created for our new headquarters in Cambridge, MA by Plebian Design and Hypersonic.
Between April 9 and 14, 2013 the art installation „FLUIDIC — Sculpture In Motion” has been displayed in the Temporary Museum for New Design in Milan. The installation was designed and produced by Berlin based design studio WHITEvoid in cooperation with Hyundai’s Advanced Design Center.
Diffusion Choir is a kinetic sculpture that uses 400 folding elements to reveal the movements of an invisible flock of birds. Its movements are always changing, driven by custom software running a flocking algorithm.
