Recently we assisted RMIT’s Spacial Information Architecture Laboratory with some work to their prototype pods! All these uniquely shaped oculi are all formed with the same mould then individually robotically trimmed (SprutCAM Robot) following a mathematically calculated curve to precisely fit the sheet metal frame when distorted!
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.
The first experimental pavilion, realized by the department of Biobased Materials and Material Cycles in Architecture (BioMat), located at the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE)
Today, with the advent of digital media technologies and the ability to conceptualize, express and produce complex forms using digital means, the question of the
In this parametric design video a few Kinetic sculptures will show you the art of motion.
Santiago Calatrava’s exhibition at Georgia Tech brings together a unique selection of models, as well as architectural and artistic drawings that display the conception and design of 13 selected projects from around the world and in the USA.
In this design activity, students designed a deployable (retractable) pavilion, a self-standing shell structure that is capable of altering from a very compact arrangement to an expanded configuration. To respond to changing scale, the structure obtains a transformational capacity that is provided through built-in mobility.
Georgia Tech researchers find ways to use Origami as the structural basis for real world applications such as deployable antennas and bridges.
For the 100th anniversary celebration of the BMW Group, media artist Andree Verleger has created the worlds largest kinetic sphere sculpture. “The Bird” filled the entire infield of the Olympic Hall in Munich and lent Verleger’s visually stunning staging a spectacular high point.
The Moses Mabhida Stadium by GMP Architekten is located in a sporting precinct in Durban on the shore of the Indian ocean and features a 105-metre arch that rises over the circular stadium. The arch is connected by cable system to the external edges of the roof, carrying the weight of the roof’s inner membrane.
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
In this parametric design video you can watch: Sisyphus kinetic sculpture within 2 foot diameter x 22″ tall, tempered glass-topped metal table (exact size may vary). Stepper motor driven Sisbot mechanism. Metal furniture with wood veneer options for top and sides – birch/maple, cherry, walnut, black. Some assembly required.
Under the title ‘Grown in Britain & Northern Ireland’, the UK’s response to the Milan Expo’s theme ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life’ is a 1,910 square metre Pavilion boasting an impressive design and complex structure, successfully delivered by creative construction and manufacturing company Stage One.(More)
This parametric design video is about Cell Cycle, a dynamic physible/webGL design app for creating 3d-printable cellular models. You can shape, twist, and subdivide, transforming a simple mesh to a complex patterned structure. It’s a playful, dynamic physible.
Parametric Design video tutorial: assembly of the EDISON laser-cut pendant lamp. In this video, you learn how to make a simple laser-cut lamp and how to assemble it. This design can be simply changed by polar arrayed parametric curve .
Manuel Herz Architects has completed a housing block in Zurich, with dynamic facades that transform into balconies for its five apartments. On all four sides of the three-storey Ballet Mécanique, the walls on the two lowest levels are opened using
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.
It’s always interesting to observe the magnetic fields and experiments in this regard. Here is a collection of all the ways to observe the secret and invisible side of magnets.
There is a demand for mass-customized.architectural elements. Roboforming is an …
The Design and Computation Group inquires into the varied nature and practice of computation in architectural design, and the ways in which design meaning, intentions, and knowledge are constructed through computational thinking, representing, sensing, and making.
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.
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.
Technical Paper by Mina Konakovic, Keenan Crane, Bailin Deng, Sofien Bouaziz, Daniel Piker, Mark Pauly presents a computational method for interactive 3D design and rationalization of surfaces via auxetic materials, i.e., flat flexible material that can stretch uniformly up to a certain extent.
