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.
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.
This parametric design video is about Wind Arbor by Ned Kahn on the western façade of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. which consists of over 260,000 aluminum “flappers”, blankets the hotel atrium’s external glass wall, creating a shimmering façade that responds to the environment.
In this parametric design video inspired by the beauty of lines and patterns of origami folds, I created a few models using 3Ds max and printed them on a 3D printer.
Diffusion Choir is a kinetic sculpture in Massachusetts that moves like a flock of birds. It’s comprised of 400 origami-like birds that perform a synchronized dance.
In this parametric design video you can see a beautiful reinvention of the standard side cabinet is a moving, flexible art piece. Artist Sebastian Errazuriz created the Wave Cabinet as a way to invite people to “look at one of the simplest forms of furniture design and to forget that we’re talking about furniture.
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.
Architect Roberto Rossi has completed a house in northern Italy that can rotate 360 degrees. Balanced on a central pillar, the octagonal house can be mechanically rotated in both directions to give its owner varied views. The rotation is also used to direct the house’s solar panels towards the sun.
Origami is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. But to engineer Mary Frecker of Pennsylvania State University, it is the future for designing tools that could be used in fields such as medicine and space exploration.
This is a parametric design video about world’s largest kinetic art sculpture unveiled at Changi Airport SINGAPORE, 4 July 2012 — Passengers and airport visitors entering the Departure Check-in Hall at Singapore Changi Airport’s Terminal 1 (T1) can expect to stop in their tracks and be captivated by a new art installation.

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.
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.
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.
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.
This is a video about bridging parametric design with craft through algorithmic modularity. The digital design space, unlimited by its virtual freedom, differs from traditional craft, which is bounded by a fixed set of given materials.
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.
The Parametric Designed facade of the Randall museum is amazing. the sculpture installation on the wall of the Randall Museum in Corona Heights, San Francisco rotates with the wind and gives the building a dynamic look!
This parametric design video is about the future of architecture: 3d printed buildings. 3D printing has the potential to revolutionize the way humans manufacture and build things, from the small scale to the very large. By combining robots with 3D printing, KUKA partner Branch Technology, working with the architects at Gould Turner Group
In this Parametric design video you can see: the Nanoleaf Aurora digital lighting system combines LED color effects with a sophisticated design, easy installation and absolute modularity.
Just Playing around with Rhinoceros+Grasshopper to make a parametric spinner
ArboSkin is a Bioplastic Façade Research Project developed at ITKE (Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design) ,Institution that has many years of experience in teaching and research in the fields of computer based design, simulation, and production of cladding for buildings with complex geometries.
Studio Arthur Casas and Atelier Marko Brajovic won the competition to create the Brazilian Pavilion for Expo Milan 2015, commissioned by APEX-Brasil. We aimed to combine architecture and scenography in order to provide visitors with an experience that would transmit Brazilian values and the aspirations of its agriculture and livestock farming according to the theme …
Santiago Calatrava’s exhibition at Georgia Tech brings together a unique selection of models, as well as architectural and artistic drawings that display the conception and design of 13 selected projects from around the world and in the USA.
