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.
Make A Ripple (2017) is a custom kinetic sculpture. It consists of 60 moving elements that are interconnected with springs. The elements are counterbalanced rods with disks on the ends which can pivot freely on a kind of universal joint.
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.
In this parametric video watch how Under Armour uses new generative design technology to drive innovation and create the world’s first 3D printed performance athletic shoe in the highly competitive athletic wear market.
Latest explorations in testing the ABB IRB6700-200 Robot named Lola.
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.
In the next decade or so, the widespread adoption of robotics is set to transform the construction industry
The charm of a mysterious desert that captivated visitors, revealing its treasures to them. This was the spell cast by Kuwait, a small Middle Eastern State that successfully meets the challenges intrinsic to an environment so apparently barren, told in a majestic Pavilion located on the Decumanus between Germany and the United States. At the …
This parametric design video is about transforming nature into architectural movement using programming and sensors.
The final prototype titled Hanging Liminality; a parametric design by James Ye-Won Lee and Jonathan Fernandes, two masters students at the University of Sydney. The installation uses 28 servo motors and an Arduino Mega.
This Parametric Design video is about The Zinnia, a wooden kinetic sculpture designed by Clayton Boyer, built by Joe Stubler. The kinetic sculpture is made of two parts which rotate in opposite directions and with different speeds.
This parametric design video will introduce the Trivol, the National Marine Museum, the Ecological Experience Center of the National Ecology Park, Di Arc, Lotte World Tower Podium and KEB Hana Bank, which are participated by Weed Works.
In this parametric design video you can see a model designed by Matthias Danzmayr for a kinetic facade.
The research team has utilized origami as inspiration for a thermally insulated rigid wall deployable shelter that can be erected manually through counterweighting. This paper presents a multiobjective shape optimization methodology which balances the priorities of structural performance (i.e., minimum deflections) and energy efficiency (i.e., minimum thermal energy load).
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.
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.
The Computational Design program takes a computer science view of design, applying both the science and art of computing to design problems, in relation to creation, presentation, analysis, evaluation, interaction or aesthetic expression; in real and imagined applications, both perceived and conceived.
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.
This parametric design video is about a robot-built pavilion. This shingled timber pavilion was created by masters students on ETH Zurich’s Digital Fabrication course, who developed robotic fabrication techniques to minimise the waste involved in its construction.
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.
The precise technology behind Luminous Patterns allows us to break away from previous design limitations.
In this parametric design video Autodesk research teams explore ways to optimize the design of airplane seat frames in order to reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.
Since its first participation in a Universal Exhibition (Philadelphia in 1876), Mexico has always delivered an impressive pavilion that captures the imagination. The fundamental theme of Expo Milano 2015 is sustainability, being as much a driving principle for feeding the world’s population, as a criteria for architectural design, in terms of eco-friendly materials, ease …
