6 Amazing Science Experiments with Magnets and other to do at home.
Seismic Design for Architects shows how structural requirements for seismic resistance can become an integral part of the design process. A non-mathematical approach focuses upon the principles and practice of seismic resistant design to enable readers to grasp the concepts and then readily apply them to their building designs.
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 …
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.”
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.
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.
Make A Ripple (2017) is a custom kinetic sculpture. It consists of 60 moving elements that are interconnected with springs. The elements are counterbalanced rods with disks on the ends which can pivot freely on a kind of universal joint.
Making of Zome lamp, behind the scenes of this fabulous design piece, fragile yet strong. The ethereal ZOME consists of identical fluid vermiforms – a sequence of dots that create a beautiful atmospheric lighting piece when assembled
This parametric design video is about Autodesk Generative Design. What if you can come up with thousands of options for a single design without drawing? This is generative design – harnessing massive computing power, achieving maximum performance while wasting nothing.
Bringing together experts from research and practice, Shell Structures for Architecture: Form Finding and Optimization presents contemporary design methods for shell and gridshell structures, covering form-finding and structural optimization techniques.
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.
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.
Origami is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. But to engineer Mary Frecker of Pennsylvania State University, it is the future for designing tools that could be used in fields such as medicine and space exploration.
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 .
In this parametric design video designer Rick Tegelaar explains how the Meshmatics Chandelier he developed at university became a Moooi product in this movie in our Design Dreams series for the Dutch brand. Launched by Moooi at Milan design week in 2017, Tegelaar’s Meshmatics Chandelier is made from three concentric, inverted wire-mesh domes of different diameters and heights.
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.
An amazing example of parametric design are Kinetic Sculptures. For the breath taking technology that combines the latest findings of engineering with the most innovative forms of arts.
British artist Conrad Shawcross has installed a 49-metre-high structure around the soon-to-be built chimneys of an energy centre on Greenwich Peninsula in southeast London. Shawcross collaborated with Danish architecture firm CF Møller to design The Optic Cloak, commissioned by Knight Dragon, the developer overhauling the peninsula.
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.
Designers are becoming more directly involved in the fabrication process from the earliest stages of design. This book showcases the design and research work by some of the leading designers, makers and thinkers today.
This parametric design video is about Interactive Kinetic Sculptures by Ivan Black. Ivan Black creates interactive kinetic sculptures that are like giant mesmerizing art toys for adults to play with.
This parametric design video is about transforming nature into architectural movement using programming and sensors.
Is your apartment filled with so many furniture it is difficult to move around?
This parametric design video is about Branch Technology and Thornton Tomasetti’s Core Studio creating the world’s largest 3D printed structure for OneCity in Nashville, TN.
