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 …
Parametric bench designed by Victor Meshkov and MehDesign. The plywood was 21 mm thick. For protection….
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.
HypoSurface is parametric design of a dynamically reconfigurable interactive architectural surface The HypoSurface is currently being entirely redeveloped using electromagnetic actuators for the new National Museum of Energy (NME), Ponferrada, Spain.
Dezeen looks behind the scenes at the factory where the fibreglass blocks that comprise BIG’s Serpentine Gallery Pavilion were made in this exclusive video produced for composite profile manufacturer Fiberline.
Researchers have created a series of 4D-printed plastic objects that fold themselves into predetermined shapes when heated, which they believe could be scaled up to create flat-pack furniture.
The new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, home to the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United FC soccer team starting in 2017, is a state-of-the-art facility that will feature sweeping views of the Atlanta skyline; flexible capacity of up to 83,000 seats; a retractable roof inspired by the oculus in the ancient Roman Pantheon.
Parametric 3D façade concept for individual architectural solutions. For the first time, a complex façade geometry is possible with standardised profiles and connectors.
By using this definition you can morph a 3d Module onto a surface. This definition uses Grasshopper’s box morph and surface box. You can control the module’s height and number of U, V distribution on the surface.
This parametric design video is about Firefly + Arduino 3d Clay Printer, Fall 2013, California College of the Arts Architecture Advanced Options Studio
The first experimental pavilion, realized by the department of Biobased Materials and Material Cycles in Architecture (BioMat), located at the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE)
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.
This video is Aerial Footage of Milwaukee Art Museum, a parametric design for an art museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin by Santiago Calatrava. Its collection contains nearly 25,000 works of art. It is one of the largest museums in the United States.
Deployable structures are a good example of a dynamic parametric design! A short video highlighting some of the first-semester work at University of Westminster School of Architecture.
In this parametric design video you can see VT Pro Design’s Kinetic Wall. Getting up close and personal with VT Pro Design’s Kinetic Wall at the first of the Future Forward events in New York City, we check out how this “hybrid” living wall, inspired by the all-new Prius’s eco-heritage, springs to life
This parametric design video is about Amazing Technology Invented By MIT. At the MIT Media Lab, the Tangible Media Group believes the future of computing is tactile. Unveiled today, the inFORM is MIT’s new scrying pool for imagining the interfaces of tomorrow. Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace
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.
A team of researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology has developed a way to use 3-D printers to create objects capable of expanding dramatically that could someday be used in applications ranging from space missions to biomedical devices.
This parametric design video is about Cell Cycle: a generative product design application. You can interact with a physics simulation of spring meshes to design your own cellular rings and bracelets for manufacture by 3d printing.
Researchers at MIT, Harvard University and Seoul National University have engineered a soft autonomous robot that moves via peristalsis, crawling across surfaces by contracting segments of its body, much like an earthworm. The robot, made almost entirely of soft materials, is remarkably resilient.
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
In this design activity, students designed a deployable (retractable) pavilion, a self-standing shell structure that is capable of altering from a very compact arrangement to an expanded configuration. To respond to changing scale, the structure obtains a transformational capacity that is provided through built-in mobility.
This parametric design video is about: The Hyphae Lamp – a new series of algorithmically generated lighting designs by Nervous System. Each lamp is individually grown through a process based on leaf vein formation. No two lamps are alike.
In this parametric design video Autodesk research teams explore ways to optimize the design of airplane seat frames in order to reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.
