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.
A Parametric Design video about Mechanisms for Design, University of Pennsylvania PennDesign class
In this parametric design video you can see that Hyphae is a collection of 3D printed artifacts constructed of rhizome-like networks. Inspired by the vein structures that carry fluids through organisms from the leaves of plants to our own circulatory systems, we created a simulation which uses physical growth principles to build sculptural, organic structures.
Parametric bench designed by Victor Meshkov and MehDesign. The plywood was 21 mm thick. For protection….
This private astronomical observatory is located on a remote mountain summit in central New Hampshire. The site is characterized by granite outcroppings and is situated at the center of a three-mile radius “dark” landscape with very little light pollution to obstruct astronomical viewing. Gemma’s design rejects a traditional dome in favor of a synthesized architectural form
Find out how human bones inspired the Eiffel Tower through the design principle of structural hierarchy.
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.
This parametric design video is about a robot-built pavilion. This shingled timber pavilion was created by masters students on ETH Zurich’s Digital Fabrication course, who developed robotic fabrication techniques to minimise the waste involved in its construction.
Theme “El Amor de Chile “ The Concept From the Atacama Desert to Patagonia, from its central green valleys to its eastern islands, extreme geographical diversity is a key feature of Chile’s showcase at Expo Milano 2015. As a main attraction, the pavilion takes visitors on a journey to experience its different ecosystems, deserts, rivers, valleys and mountains, showing how life …
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.
Hyundai Motorstudio Goyang is the largest automobile theme park in Korea, located about 40min northwest of Seoul. The highlight of the exhibition is the Design Area featuring a beautifully designed kinetic sculpture and a spectacular 360 degree film presentation for which designers have created multichannel sound and music.
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
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 is a video about bridging parametric design with craft through algorithmic modularity. The digital design space, unlimited by its virtual freedom, differs from traditional craft, which is bounded by a fixed set of given materials.
In this video, we will exhibit 4 different Expo Pavilions which can inspire your design ideas and be a motivation for your design skills.
ArboSkin is a Bioplastic Façade Research Project developed at ITKE (Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design) ,Institution that has many years of experience in teaching and research in the fields of computer based design, simulation, and production of cladding for buildings with complex geometries.
Deployable structure composed of smart materials based actuators can reconcile its inherently conflicting requirements of low mass, good shape adaptability, and high load-bearing capability. This work describes the fabrication of deployable structures using smart soft composite actuators combining a soft matrix with variable stiffness properties and hinge-like movement through a rigid skeleton.
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)
You can see bigger versions of this scientific parametric design in museums and science departments. But we think this might be the first time it has been produced as an affordable table-top demonstration. Fifteen ball bearings hang from a frame, suspended on fine threads.
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.
This is a video by Ahmad Rafsanjani showing buckling-Induced Kirigami Physical Review. Kirigami is a variation of origami that includes cutting of the paper, rather than solely folding the paper as is the case with origami, but typically does not use glue.Typically, kirigami starts with a folded base,
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.
In this parametric video you can learn more about generative design. What if instead of using the computer to draw what you already know, you could tell the computer what you want to accomplish?
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.
