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 parametric design video is about Wind Arbor by Ned Kahn on the western façade of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. which consists of over 260,000 aluminum “flappers”, blankets the hotel atrium’s external glass wall, creating a shimmering façade that responds to the environment.
Visitors can now scale British designer Thomas Heatherwick’s giant honeycomb-like sculpture at New York’s Hudson Yards, which has opened along with the other public spaces at the vast West Side development. Temporarily known as Vessel, the Heatherwick Studio-designed structure is welcoming the first visitors to climb its 154 staircases.
This Kinetic Architecture & Art Video will showcase some of the examples of Kinetic design in Art and Architecture. Albahar Tower, Kiefer Technic showroom, Arab world institute, Megafon Pavilion, South Korea Pavilion (Expo 2012), Media-tic Facade, Shanghai Theatre facade & Flare Facade are some of the examples of how kinetic design affect buildings.
Diffusion Choir is a kinetic sculpture in Massachusetts that moves like a flock of birds. It’s comprised of 400 origami-like birds that perform a synchronized dance.
In recent decades origami structures and forms has been of increasing interest to mathematicians and engineers. Mathematicians are more interested in the geometrical aspects of origami objects such as foldability of origami patterns, especially foldability of developable surfaces.
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.
Between April 9 and 14, 2013 the art installation „FLUIDIC — Sculpture In Motion” has been displayed in the Temporary Museum for New Design in Milan. The installation was designed and produced by Berlin based design studio WHITEvoid in cooperation with Hyundai’s Advanced Design Center.
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 was created for the purposes of the postgraduate course “Smart & Bioclimatic Design” at TU Delft, based on a research by Apostolina Karapanou: “Creating a living building, An Approach to Climate Adaptive Skins”.
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 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.
Collaborative Project for Architecture Design Studio IV to create a smart kinetic facade programmed with Arduino Uno. Solar Cell is a prototype for a modular system involving the facade. Kennesaw State University Architecture.
In this parametric design video a few Kinetic sculptures will show you the art of motion.
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.
Is your apartment filled with so many furniture it is difficult to move around?
In collaboration with Microsoft, Momentum the Kinetic Sculpture is now on permanent display at the Microsoft Theater. It made of locally sourced ash wood. Inspired by the Microsoft logo, the robotic sculpture is made up of 80 Ultramotion motors and 160 wooden tiles.
This parametric design video is about TOP 10 3D Printed Creations; Walking Gyroscope, CNC Multi-Tool Machine, Cortex Cast, Dodecahedron Speaker, Forms In Nature Light, Toyota Replica Model, Local Motors Car, Jet Engine, Protohouse Scaled Model & Jin Hai Resort and Apartment Building
Buitink Technology supplied and assembled a textile facade for the renovation of Markant in Uden. Buitink Technology cooperated with Herman Hertzberger. The textile facade is made of two membranes, each about 70 m long and 6 m height, tensed all around inside an aluminum structure.
In this parametric design video find out how we are using the BigRep ONE to 3D Print large scale furniture in one piece. Our 3D Designer Beatrice Müller is using the BigRep ONE to 3D Print Large Furniture, almost in one piece, only adding the padding afterwards. Firms across industries use BigRep’s large-format industrial 3D printer technology to reduce costs, develop better products and get to market quicker.
Just Playing around with Rhinoceros+Grasshopper to make a parametric spinner
NASA is using origami to build a giant star blocker, in hopes of imaging distant worlds. “Origami, the Japanese tradition of paper-folding, has inspired a number of unique spacecraft designs. It’s little wonder that it fascinates NASA engineers: origami can seem deceptively simple, hiding complex math within its creases.”
The precise technology behind Luminous Patterns allows us to break away from previous design limitations.
