In the next decade or so, the widespread adoption of robotics is set to transform the construction industry
A continuous line of plastic makes up this intricate robot-built chair, designed using a new 3D-printing software by a team from the Bartlett School of Architecture in London. The Bartlett’s Design Computation Lab (DCL), a part of University College London, created the software to open up new possibilities for 3D printing.
Living Form – Expanding Fabric Dome for Centre Georges Pompidou by Chuck Hoberman
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.
It’s always interesting to observe the magnetic fields and experiments in this regard. Here is a collection of all the ways to observe the secret and invisible side of magnets.
In this Architecture Design Video, we are covering 5 Parametric Buildings: 1- Harbin Opera House 2- The Street Building 3- Elbphilharmonie Hamburg 4-Museo Soumaya 5-The Broad Museum
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.
This parametric design video is about a 3D Printed Concrete Firepit. HomeMade-Modern 3d printed 3 different parts of the fire pit and then made silicone molds of the prints. They used Quikrete 5000 concrete mix in the silicone molds to make the final blocks for the Firepit.
Under the title ‘Grown in Britain & Northern Ireland’, the UK’s response to the Milan Expo’s theme ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life’ is a 1,910 square metre Pavilion boasting an impressive design and complex structure, successfully delivered by creative construction and manufacturing company Stage One.(More)
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.
Compilations of ten materialized artworks by legendary Zaha Hadid (1950-2016) across the planet.
Curved beams along freeform skins pose many challenges, not least on the level of basic geometry. A prototypical instance of this is presented by the glass facades of the Eiffel tower pavilions, and the interrelation between the differential geometric properties of the glass surface on the one hand, and the layout of beams on the other hand.
IaaC Open Thesis Fabrication Program 2015 proposes an experimental project bringing together the challenge of building with Catalan wood, the potentials of robotic fabrication and parametric design.
In this parametric design video Mr. Mind Blow is bringing you AMAZING SCIENCE Toys/Gadgets! Sit back and relax. Enjoy 10 minutes of oddly satisfying scientific curiosities feauturing various engines with candles, ferrofluid toys, kinetic art that uses physics, optical illusions, various forms of dices, math toys/shapes and more mindblowing stuff!
This is a parametric design video showing a test we made on a Gererative interactive LED floor. LED interactive flooring which reacts when you walk over it.
Buitink Technology supplied and assembled a textile facade for the renovation of Markant in Uden. Buitink Technology cooperated with Herman Hertzberger. The textile facade is made of two membranes, each about 70 m long and 6 m height, tensed all around inside an aluminum structure.
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
There is a demand for mass-customized.architectural elements. Roboforming is an …
This video is Aerial Footage of Milwaukee Art Museum, a parametric design for an art museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin by Santiago Calatrava. Its collection contains nearly 25,000 works of art. It is one of the largest museums in the United States.
This paper presents a prototype tool for the space planning phase, which automatically generates alternative floor plans, according to the architect’s preferences and desires, and assesses their thermal performance by coupling it with dynamic simulation.
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.
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.
Over the last few months we’ve been publishing short movies about shape-shifting architecture on our Facebook page. Here are ten of the best including parametric design projects with sliding walls, kinetic facades and rotating houses.
In this parametric design video you can see: British sculpture artist Ivan Black is an artist with almost two decades of experience in constructing kinetic objects. He has a deep-rooted passion for kinetics and a talent for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. This gift is perfectly illustrated in Nebula Hive, a 1m high x 0.75m wide luminous vortex of kinetic energy that slowly transforms into countless celestial forms,
