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 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.
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.
Due to the economy development in the world, people are becoming rich and the standard of living is improving. On the other hand the majority of the population is also suffering from wars and poverty and it is seen increasing with the economic and social development of the society. There is a major motive to …
Parametric bench designed by Victor Meshkov and MehDesign. The plywood was 21 mm thick. For protection….
This book covers new materials and design methods, advances in computational design practices, innovations in building technologies and construction techniques, and the integration of research with design.
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.
Designers developed an interactive design system that allows non-expert users to create animated mechanical characters. Given an articulated character as input, the user iteratively creates an animation by sketching motion curves indicating how different parts of the character should move.
This parametric design video is about generative design for fashion. This Fits Me is a system that allows people to design unique and personalised fashion through 3D body scanning and generative algorithms.
Chuck Hoberman is an artist, engineer, architect, and inventor of folding toys and structures, most notably the Hoberman sphere. In addition to toys such as the Hoberman sphere, Hoberman created the BrainTwist, a hard plastic tetrahedron that folds, stellates, and becomes self-dual while having a component that rotates similarly to a Rubik’s Cube.
In this parametric design video you can see VT Pro Design’s Kinetic Wall. Getting up close and personal with VT Pro Design’s Kinetic Wall at the first of the Future Forward events in New York City, we check out how this “hybrid” living wall, inspired by the all-new Prius’s eco-heritage, springs to life
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.
This parametric design video is about Metamaterial Textures which is a research project from the Hasso Plattner Institute, published at CHI 2018. Metamaterial textures are integrated into 3D printed objects and allow designing how the object interacts with the environment and the user’s tactile sense.
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.
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,
Theme: “Different Ways of Producing and Providing Food” Concept How can we feed the world, today and tomorrow? How can we ensure adequate food for mankind that is of good quality and healthy in the long term? France is focusing on this central issue posed by Expo Milano 2015, with a commitment to participate fully in the discussion, providing answers based on its capabilities and …
In this parametric design video you can see that Hyphae is a collection of 3D printed artifacts constructed of rhizome-like networks. Inspired by the vein structures that carry fluids through organisms from the leaves of plants to our own circulatory systems, we created a simulation which uses physical growth principles to build sculptural, organic structures.
A mixture of algorithms, robots, software, and avatars, is transforming all types of jobs and industries. This book responds to one critical question for the design and construction industry: “how are architects, engineers, and contractors using information technology to further automate their practices?”
Designed by world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind (New York/Milan/Zurich), the corporate pavilion for Vanke China will explore key issues related to the theme of the Expo, “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”. The interior exhibition design is led by Ralph Appelbaum Associates (NewYork/ London/Beijing/Berlin/Moscow) with graphic design by Han Jiaying (Beijing). (more)
This Paramertric Design video is about Somerville MA’s Jewelry, furniture, and lamp design studio, Nervous System, creates software to allow you to create your own.
Yama Karim, Principal at Studio Libeskind, talks to BuiltWorlds about the challenges and the design process for the Vanke Pavilion in Milan, Italy. The pavilion was created for Chinese real estate developer Vanke for the 2015 Milan Expo.
In this parametric design video a few Kinetic sculptures will show you the art of motion.
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.
