This parametric design video is about transforming nature into architectural movement using programming and sensors.
Technical Paper by Mina Konakovic, Keenan Crane, Bailin Deng, Sofien Bouaziz, Daniel Piker, Mark Pauly presents a computational method for interactive 3D design and rationalization of surfaces via auxetic materials, i.e., flat flexible material that can stretch uniformly up to a certain extent.
In this parametric design video you can see that Nervous System has created the first dress with Kinematics, their unique 4D printing system that creates complex, foldable forms composed of articulated modules. The Museum of Modern Art has acquired the dress along with the software that created it for their permanent collection.
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.
USC School of Architecture ARCH 599 – Physical Computing Dynamic building facade parametric design
This is a video by Hojoo Lee showing complex analysis meets minimal surfaces. In mathematics, a minimal surface is a surface that locally minimizes its area. This is equivalent to having zero mean curvature.The term “minimal surface” is used because these surfaces originally arose as surfaces that minimized total surface area subject to some constraint.
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.
A parametric design for Metamaterials. Metamaterial Mechanisms is a research project from the Hasso Plattner Institute.A metamaterial is a material engineered to have a property that is not found in nature.
In this parametric design video a few Kinetic sculptures will show you the art of motion.
This Paramertric Design video is about how to make 3d printed parametric planters with Rhino 3d + a plugin called grasshopper
In this parametric design video you can see that researchers at the the technical school ETH Zurich have constructed a unique lightweight concrete ceiling by mixing computational design, 3D printing and prefabrication.
The precise technology behind Luminous Patterns allows us to break away from previous design limitations.
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.
Navicula is derived from nature, in this case from one of the many microscopic diatoms that float around in the oceans. The flowing, segmented form is shipped as kitset and assembled on site with push-in nylon clips. The thin curved pieces of CNC-cut bamboo plywood create a flowing structure
Just Playing around with Rhinoceros+Grasshopper to make a parametric spinner
A Parametric Design video about Mechanisms for Design, University of Pennsylvania PennDesign class
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
In this parametric design video you can watch: Sisyphus kinetic sculpture within 2 foot diameter x 22″ tall, tempered glass-topped metal table (exact size may vary). Stepper motor driven Sisbot mechanism. Metal furniture with wood veneer options for top and sides – birch/maple, cherry, walnut, black. Some assembly required.
Due to the economy development in the world, people are becoming rich and the standard of living is improving. On the other hand the majority of the population is also suffering from wars and poverty and it is seen increasing with the economic and social development of the society. There is a major motive to …
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 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.
Hyundai Motorstudio Goyang is the largest automobile theme park in Korea, located about 40min northwest of Seoul. The highlight of the exhibition is the Design Area featuring a beautifully designed kinetic sculpture and a spectacular 360 degree film presentation for which designers have created multichannel sound and music.
In recent decades origami structures and forms has been of increasing interest to mathematicians and engineers. Mathematicians are more interested in the geometrical aspects of origami objects such as foldability of origami patterns, especially foldability of developable surfaces.
