Is your apartment filled with so many furniture it is difficult to move around?
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.
In This video by LGG EPFL you can see the development of novel deployable structures that can approximate a large class of doubly-curved surfaces and are easily actuated from a flat initial state via inflation or gravitational loading.
This book connects the different topics and professions involved in information technology approaches to architectural design, ranging from computer-aided design, building information modeling and programming to simulation, digital representation, augmented and virtual reality, digital fabrication and physical computation.
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.
In this parametric design video you can see: Kinetic proposal for the John Portman`s Bonaventure hotel, LA and Renaissance center, Detroit retrofitting facade in order to increase thermal performance of the building as well as dealing with the issue of privacy.
A new specialist design role is emerging in the construction industry.
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.
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.
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
Sit back and relax. Enjoy 10 minutes of oddly satisfying scientific curiosities featuring various engines with candles, ferrofluid toys, kinetic art that uses physics, optical illusions, various forms of dices, math toys/shapes and more mindblowing stuff!
Theme “El Amor de Chile “ The Concept From the Atacama Desert to Patagonia, from its central green valleys to its eastern islands, extreme geographical diversity is a key feature of Chile’s showcase at Expo Milano 2015. As a main attraction, the pavilion takes visitors on a journey to experience its different ecosystems, deserts, rivers, valleys and mountains, showing how life …
Just Playing around with Rhinoceros+Grasshopper to make a parametric spinner
Philips, the global leader in lighting, and the German soccer champion presented a new LED façade lighting at the Allianz Arena for the first time on.The entire innovative Philips system can be controlled digitally and is capable of reproducing 16 million colors.
Design and fabrication of a laser cut small parametric chair with rhino and grasshopper
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
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.
Latest captioned parametric design movie features modular structures designed by Ten Fold Engineering, which can be transported anywhere on a lorry and self-deployed at the touch of a button. Here are ten of the best including projects with sliding walls, kinetic facades and rotating houses.
The Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) is dedicated to the teaching and research of computational design and computer-aided manufacturing processes in architecture.
Oddly satisfying scientific curiosities featuring 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 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.
This film was made by Ashok Rupner TATA Trust: Make a wonderful HYPERBOLA from straight sticks! This work was supported by IUCAA and Tata Trust. In geometry, a hyperboloid of revolution, sometimes called circular hyperboloid, is a surface that may be generated by rotating a hyperbola around one of its principal axes.
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.
