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.
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.
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!
These amazing parametric designs are a Kinetic art, Perpetual motion and a Marble Machine designed by veproject1.
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.
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,
In the fall 2015, for exploring the notion of three-dimensional structures, students in freshman design studios in Department of Architecture at Texas A&M University were asked to design Surface Active Arches by using plywood.
Making of Zome lamp, behind the scenes of this fabulous design piece, fragile yet strong. The ethereal ZOME consists of identical fluid vermiforms – a sequence of dots that create a beautiful atmospheric lighting piece when assembled
This parametric design video is about iluma. iluma has a facade of jewelled polycarbonate cells that glitter in the day and glow in the night. The facade is a canvas for media artist to display their works. with a budget of SGD 100 million, the country’s first urban entertainment centre is targeted at the young professionals in their 20s and 30s. the mall is able to cater for up to 60 – 80 thousand consumers on a daily basis.
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.
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 …
In this parametric design video you can see: how to cool a building without air conditioning, Using an approach called biomimicry, see how architect Mick Pearce harnessed the ingenuity of termites to design a natural cooling system for the largest commercial building in Zimbabwe.
This experiment is the Chladni plate experiment. designer used a tone generator, a wave driver (speaker) and a metal plate attached to the speaker. First add sand to the plate then begin playing a tone.
In this parametric design video you can see that Nervous System has created the first dress with Kinematics, their unique 4D printing system that creates complex, foldable forms composed of articulated modules. The Museum of Modern Art has acquired the dress along with the software that created it for their permanent collection.
This is a video by Hojoo Lee showing complex analysis meets minimal surfaces. In mathematics, a minimal surface is a surface that locally minimizes its area. This is equivalent to having zero mean curvature.The term “minimal surface” is used because these surfaces originally arose as surfaces that minimized total surface area subject to some constraint.
In this parametric design video you can see that researchers at the the technical school ETH Zurich have constructed a unique lightweight concrete ceiling by mixing computational design, 3D printing and prefabrication.
Architecture in Space is entering a new era. It is over 40 years now since the late Neil Armstrong became …
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.
If the ongoing tech revolution has taught us anything, it’s that people want flexibility and high adaptability, and that mindset has affected all aspects of our lives. So, it seems that the next logical step is to make our buildings flexible enough to suit our needs.
This parametric design video is about LOTUS. Interactive art wall Lotus by artist Daan Roosegaarde is a living wall made out of smart foils which fold open in response to human behavior. Walking by Lotus, hundreds of aluminium foils unfold themselves in an organic way.
This parametric design video is about Interactive Kinetic Sculptures by Ivan Black. Ivan Black creates interactive kinetic sculptures that are like giant mesmerizing art toys for adults to play with.
Through the use of parametric scripting various panelized surface formations, panel configurations and patterns were studied for the facade. Ultimately, three profiled perforated metal panels were cut and broken into varying surface conditions and gradated onto the facade.
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.
The making of the kinetic facade of the MegaFaces pavilion at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.
