Latest explorations in testing the ABB IRB6700-200 Robot named Lola.
This experiment is the Chladni plate experiment. designer used a tone generator, a wave driver (speaker) and a metal plate attached to the speaker. First add sand to the plate then begin playing a tone.
Parametric bench designed by Victor Meshkov and MehDesign. The plywood was 21 mm thick. For protection….
This Kinetic art object based on rotating squares by Klemens Torggler is a good example of how a parametric designed object can be used in our homes
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.
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.
Curved beams along freeform skins pose many challenges, not least on the level of basic geometry. A prototypical instance of this is presented by the glass facades of the Eiffel tower pavilions, and the interrelation between the differential geometric properties of the glass surface on the one hand, and the layout of beams on the other hand.
This book discusses analytical tools for designing energy efficient and lightweight structures that embody the concept of tensegrity. The book provides both static and dynamic analysis of special tensegrity structural concepts,
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!
Architecture Design : the UK pavilion at Expo 2010, colloquially known as the Seed Cathedral, was a sculpture structure built by a nine-member conglomeration of British business and government resources directed by designer Thomas Heatherwick.
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.
This paper investigates the identification of the PV blinds’ optimal design parametersbased on a cost-benefit approach. A methodology, that encompasses thermal comfort, visual comfort,and energy savings requirements while resolving the conflicting issues resulting from the fulfillment ofthese requirements, is highlighted.
The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) is a centre for research, education, production and outreach, with the mission of envisioning the future habitat of our society and building it in the present. IAAC follows the digital revolution at all scales (from bits to geography, from micro-controllers to cities, from materials to the territory) to expand the boundaries of architecture and design and meet the challenges
This book connects the different topics and professions involved in information technology approaches to architectural design, ranging from computer-aided design, building information modeling and programming to simulation, digital representation, augmented and virtual reality, digital fabrication and physical computation.
Dutch designer Lilian van Daal claims 3D-printing can replace traditional upholstery techniques to produce spongy-surfaced furniture in this parametric design movie filmed in Eindhoven. Van Daal is investigating alternative production methods for upholstered furniture, which is usually very resource-intensive to make
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.
In this video, we will exhibit 4 different Expo Pavilions which can inspire your design ideas and be a motivation for your design skills.
Latest captioned parametric design movie features modular structures designed by Ten Fold Engineering, which can be transported anywhere on a lorry and self-deployed at the touch of a button. Here are ten of the best including projects with sliding walls, kinetic facades and rotating houses.
Advancing Wood Architecture offers a comprehensive overview of the new architectural possibilities that are enabled by cutting-edge computational technologies in wood construction.
The charm of a mysterious desert that captivated visitors, revealing its treasures to them. This was the spell cast by Kuwait, a small Middle Eastern State that successfully meets the challenges intrinsic to an environment so apparently barren, told in a majestic Pavilion located on the Decumanus between Germany and the United States. At the …
This parametric design video is about TOP 10 3D Printed Creations; Walking Gyroscope, CNC Multi-Tool Machine, Cortex Cast, Dodecahedron Speaker, Forms In Nature Light, Toyota Replica Model, Local Motors Car, Jet Engine, Protohouse Scaled Model & Jin Hai Resort and Apartment Building
Over the last few months we’ve been publishing short movies about shape-shifting architecture on our Facebook page. Here are ten of the best including parametric design projects with sliding walls, kinetic facades and rotating houses.
