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 collaboration with Microsoft, Momentum the Kinetic Sculpture is now on permanent display at the Microsoft Theater. It made of locally sourced ash wood. Inspired by the Microsoft logo, the robotic sculpture is made up of 80 Ultramotion motors and 160 wooden tiles.
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.
WOOD PERFORMATIVE GRIDSHELL – Cantiere Didattico Sperimentale 2012 – 2013
Responsabile Scientifico Prof. arch. Luigi Alini
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.
This parametric design video is about Breaking Wave located in the Biogen Idec lobby. Breaking Wave is an anamorphic kinetic sculpture created for our new headquarters in Cambridge, MA by Plebian Design and Hypersonic.
Imagine being able to design your optimal solution without using a single CAD operation. Now imagine being able to evaluate hundreds of viable options rather than a single design. That’s the power of generative design.
The precise technology behind Luminous Patterns allows us to break away from previous design limitations.
In this Parametric design video you can see: the Nanoleaf Aurora digital lighting system combines LED color effects with a sophisticated design, easy installation and absolute modularity.
This is a video by Hojoo Lee showing complex analysis meets minimal surfaces. In mathematics, a minimal surface is a surface that locally minimizes its area. This is equivalent to having zero mean curvature.The term “minimal surface” is used because these surfaces originally arose as surfaces that minimized total surface area subject to some constraint.
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
This parametric design video is about transforming nature into architectural movement using programming and sensors.
This paper presents the application of multi-objective genetic algorithms for holistic building design that considers multiple criteria; building energy use, capital cost, daylight distribution and thermal indoor environment. The optimization focus is related to building envelope parameters.
In this Architecture Design Video, we are covering 5 Parametric Buildings: 1- Harbin Opera House 2- The Street Building 3- Elbphilharmonie Hamburg 4-Museo Soumaya 5-The Broad Museum
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.
Parametric 3D façade concept for individual architectural solutions. For the first time, a complex façade geometry is possible with standardised profiles and connectors.
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.
In this parametric design video you can see that Nervous System has created the first dress with Kinematics, their unique 4D printing system that creates complex, foldable forms composed of articulated modules. The Museum of Modern Art has acquired the dress along with the software that created it for their permanent collection.
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 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.
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?
Architectural designs are frequently represented digitally as plane-faced meshes, yet these can be challenging to translate into built structures. Offsetting operations may be used to give thickness to meshes, and are produced by offsetting the faces, edges, or vertices of the mesh in an appropriately defined normal direction.
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.
