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 see how 3D Systems’ Janne Kyttanen utilizes the complex, optimized structures found only in nature with his latest creation: a 3D printed lattice structure lounger chair. Created in a single print on the ProX 950, this lounger represents the perfect marriage of form and function.
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.
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.
Harvard researchers have developed a general framework to design reconfigurable metamaterials. The design strategy is scale independent, meaning it can be applied to everything from meter-scale architectures to reconfigurable nano-scale systems such as photonic crystals, waveguides and metamaterials to guide heat.
This video is Aerial Footage of Milwaukee Art Museum, a parametric design for an art museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin by Santiago Calatrava. Its collection contains nearly 25,000 works of art. It is one of the largest museums in the United States.

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!
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.
Compilations of ten materialized artworks by legendary Zaha Hadid (1950-2016) across the planet.
Just Playing around with Rhinoceros+Grasshopper to make a parametric spinner
This is a simple step by step instruction of how to build the Dune shelf.
The making of the kinetic facade of the MegaFaces pavilion at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.
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 …
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.
In this architecture project we are taking a look at the Aqua Tower as an example for the Architecture design section. Aqua is an 82-story mixed-use residential skyscraper in the Lakeshore East development in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Designed by a team led by Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects, with James Loewenberg of Loewenberg & Associates as the Architect of Record
Located on the EXPO’s main street Decumano, the Russian pavilion is a 3,260 square meter building. The structure virtually repeats the given plot of land with an elongated and rather narrow parallelepiped configuration, thrusting forward a dynamic cantilever over the main entrance to the pavilion.(more)
This parametric design video is about reaction-diffusion. Reaction-diffusion (RD) is a canonical example of complex behavior that emerges from a simple set of rules. RD models a set of substances that are diffusing, or spreading; these substances also react with one another to create new substances.
Researchers have created a series of 4D-printed plastic objects that fold themselves into predetermined shapes when heated, which they believe could be scaled up to create flat-pack furniture.
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.
These amazing parametric designs are a Kinetic art, Perpetual motion and a Marble Machine designed by veproject1.
This parametric design video shows robotic milling (using the Kuka PRC plugin) from Firefly’s audio analytic tools. The waveform was milled by turning an MDF panel. The higher the volume is, deeper the tool goes.
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 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.
This parametric design video shows Aperactive (interactive aperture), by Hunter Ruthrauff, an interactive panel that opens based on user proximity. Its ability to be both opaque and transparent at the user’s discretion opens the doors to new possibilities to the relationship shared between private and public spaces.
