Advancing Wood Architecture offers a comprehensive overview of the new architectural possibilities that are enabled by cutting-edge computational technologies in wood construction.
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.
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
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.
6 Amazing Science Experiments with Magnets and other to do at home.
This parametric design video is about a 3D Printed Concrete Firepit. HomeMade-Modern 3d printed 3 different parts of the fire pit and then made silicone molds of the prints. They used Quikrete 5000 concrete mix in the silicone molds to make the final blocks for the Firepit.
Rhynamo is an open source plugin for connecting Rhino to Dynamo and Revit. Rhynamo uses OpenNURBS to help designers translate geometry and data for use in a BIM workflow.
Georgia Tech researchers find ways to use Origami as the structural basis for real world applications such as deployable antennas and bridges.
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.
In this parametric design video you can see 9 amazing magnet gadgets.
WOOD PERFORMATIVE GRIDSHELL – Cantiere Didattico Sperimentale 2012 – 2013
Responsabile Scientifico Prof. arch. Luigi Alini
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.
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
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
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?”
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.
In this research thesis you can learn about parametric design and robotic construction through a few projects like: Pre-fabricated house, Façade prototype, 3d extruded structures, Trauma center and Innsbruck pavilions.
Petit Pli constructs the most advanced technical children’s clothing in the world. Petit Pli’s recycled, versatile & rainproof garments are embedded with a patent pending structure that allows them to grow bi-directionally to custom fit children from 9 months to 4 years of age.
In 6 months its shows were seen by 14 million people, two-thirds of all visitors to Expo. The video was clicked 800 thousand times on YouTube. The hashtag #treeoflife was more successful than #Christmastree. Just a few of the numbers that demonstrate the success of the Tree of Life. Like the Eiffel Tower, built for …
This parametric design video is about Cell Cycle: a generative product design application. You can interact with a physics simulation of spring meshes to design your own cellular rings and bracelets for manufacture by 3d printing.
The kinetic sculpture aptly named Pulse adorns the atrium of d3´s Core 4 building. Suspended in the skylight, Pulse brings the entire space to life. Inspired by the pulse of human heart when in motion, at first the individual elements disperse throughout the atrium, imitating the glass-making sands when scattered on the ground.
This paper presents a prototype tool for the space planning phase, which automatically generates alternative floor plans, according to the architect’s preferences and desires, and assesses their thermal performance by coupling it with dynamic simulation.
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.
