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!

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.
This parametric design video is about “Kinetic Rain” art installation at the Changi International Airport in Singapore. The sculpture was commissioned by Changi Airport Group Singapore in 2012 as part of refurbishment efforts of Terminal 1. It stands as the largest kinetic art sculpture in the world.
Design and fabrication of a laser cut small parametric chair with rhino and grasshopper
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.
Designed by world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind (New York/Milan/Zurich), the corporate pavilion for Vanke China will explore key issues related to the theme of the Expo, “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”. The interior exhibition design is led by Ralph Appelbaum Associates (NewYork/ London/Beijing/Berlin/Moscow) with graphic design by Han Jiaying (Beijing).

This parametric design video is about the future of architecture: 3d printed buildings. 3D printing has the potential to revolutionize the way humans manufacture and build things, from the small scale to the very large. By combining robots with 3D printing, KUKA partner Branch Technology, working with the architects at Gould Turner Group
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
The purpose of this research is to assess daylight performance of buildings with climatic responsive envelopes with complex geometry that integrates shading devices in the façade. To this end two case studies are chosen due to their complex geometries and integrated daylight devices. The effect of different parameters of the daylight devices is analysed through Climate base daylight metrics (CBDM).
There is a shift in thinking about how cities are being planned and built. Generative design and robotics help pull a design from a digital model to a real-world finished artifact.
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.
IaaC Open Thesis Fabrication Program 2015 proposes an experimental project bringing together the challenge of building with Catalan wood, the potentials of robotic fabrication and parametric design.
This parametric design video is about transforming nature into architectural movement using programming and sensors.
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.
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 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.
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.
This is a parametric design video showing a test we made on a Gererative interactive LED floor. LED interactive flooring which reacts when you walk over it.
Manufacturing of a pendant lamp from the collection Swing: lovingly handcrafted by the designers from dreizehngrad
USC School of Architecture ARCH 599 – Physical Computing Dynamic building facade parametric design
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.
Advancing Wood Architecture offers a comprehensive overview of the new architectural possibilities that are enabled by cutting-edge computational technologies in wood construction.
The Parametric Designed facade of the Randall museum is amazing. the sculpture installation on the wall of the Randall Museum in Corona Heights, San Francisco rotates with the wind and gives the building a dynamic look!
In this parametric design video you can see a model designed by Matthias Danzmayr for a kinetic facade.
