In this parametric design video you can see a model designed by Matthias Danzmayr for a kinetic facade.
This is a simple step by step instruction of how to build the Dune shelf.
This parametric design video is about transforming nature into architectural movement using programming and sensors.
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.
Is your apartment filled with so many furniture it is difficult to move around?
This parametric design video is about Poetic Kinetics; a studio that specializes in larger than life sculptures, many of which bring new life into public spaces around the world. Their most recent installation in St. Petersburg, Russia resembles a firebird, whose tail and wings span over 32,500 square feet.
Reconfigurable materials and structures developed by Harvard researchers
At the time when he was an architecture student, Tyler Short developed a kinetic blinds concept that follows the sun throughout the day.
Parametric bench designed by Victor Meshkov and MehDesign. The plywood was 21 mm thick. For protection….
Is this a mechanical watch? You did not guess. This is a parametric design of the “KINETIC PICTURE”! Start the mechanism with a special key and the optical illusion will capture your imagination! Open the brand wooden box and after two or three fascinating evenings of leisure you will surprise you guests with an unusual moving picture.
Deployable structures are a good example of a dynamic parametric design! A short video highlighting some of the first-semester work at University of Westminster School of Architecture.
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.
There is a shift in thinking about how cities are being planned and built. Generative design and robotics help pull a design from a digital model to a real-world finished artifact.
Just Playing around with Rhinoceros+Grasshopper to make a parametric spinner
This book discusses analytical tools for designing energy efficient and lightweight structures that embody the concept of tensegrity. The book provides both static and dynamic analysis of special tensegrity structural concepts,
A new specialist design role is emerging in the construction industry.
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
The object of this parametric design was to produce an Automata that was inspired by the work of Reuben Margolin. All components were hand made the aim was to recreate the reaction of droplet as it impacts a body of water
Architectural designs are frequently represented digitally as plane-faced meshes, yet these can be challenging to translate into built structures. Offsetting operations may be used to give thickness to meshes, and are produced by offsetting the faces, edges, or vertices of the mesh in an appropriately defined normal direction.
Imagine being able to design your optimal solution without using a single CAD operation. Now imagine being able to evaluate hundreds of viable options rather than a single design. That’s the power of generative design.
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.
The Design and Computation Group inquires into the varied nature and practice of computation in architectural design, and the ways in which design meaning, intentions, and knowledge are constructed through computational thinking, representing, sensing, and making.
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.
Researchers have created a series of 4D-printed plastic objects that fold themselves into predetermined shapes when heated, which they believe could be scaled up to create flat-pack furniture.
