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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
Latest explorations in testing the ABB IRB6700-200 Robot named Lola.
In this parametric design video you can see 9 amazing magnet gadgets.

In this parametric design video you can see a beautiful reinvention of the standard side cabinet is a moving, flexible art piece. Artist Sebastian Errazuriz created the Wave Cabinet as a way to invite people to “look at one of the simplest forms of furniture design and to forget that we’re talking about furniture.
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.
This parametric design video is about generative design for fashion. This Fits Me is a system that allows people to design unique and personalised fashion through 3D body scanning and generative algorithms.
In the next decade or so, the widespread adoption of robotics is set to transform the construction industry
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.
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,
Design process / Design wooden lamps build by cnc router. Supercone wood lamps. Design Lampen / Fräsen von Teilen für Designerlampen.
This thesis deals with the development of a tool intended for automatic optimization of point support distribution for plate and shell structures. In an architectural context point supported plate or shell constellations are typically represented by doubly-spanning, in situ concrete systems carried by columns.
This parametric design video is about Metamaterial Textures which is a research project from the Hasso Plattner Institute, published at CHI 2018. Metamaterial textures are integrated into 3D printed objects and allow designing how the object interacts with the environment and the user’s tactile sense.
The Burnham Centennial Committee, in collaboration with City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, Millenium Park Inc. and The Art Institute of Chicago, selected Pritzker Prize winning Zaha Hadid Architects to design a pavilion to commemorate the centennial of Burnham’s Plan for Chicago.
The United Arab Emirates pavilion at the 2015 Milan Expo opened today. Bringing the planning principles of the traditional desert city to Milan, the pavilion’s interior of self-shaded streets evokes the experience of the UAE’s ancient communities, while demonstrating the natural energy efficiency of their compact urban form.

Origami is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. But to engineer Mary Frecker of Pennsylvania State University, it is the future for designing tools that could be used in fields such as medicine and space exploration.
The Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) is dedicated to the teaching and research of computational design and computer-aided manufacturing processes in architecture.
Yama Karim, Principal at Studio Libeskind, talks to BuiltWorlds about the challenges and the design process for the Vanke Pavilion in Milan, Italy. The pavilion was created for Chinese real estate developer Vanke for the 2015 Milan Expo.
Since its first participation in a Universal Exhibition (Philadelphia in 1876), Mexico has always delivered an impressive pavilion that captures the imagination. The fundamental theme of Expo Milano 2015 is sustainability, being as much a driving principle for feeding the world’s population, as a criteria for architectural design, in terms of eco-friendly materials, ease …
Nervous System is a design studio that works at the intersection of science, art, and technology. We create using a novel process that employs computer simulation to generate designs and digital fabrication to realize products.
This Parametric Design video is about The Zinnia, a wooden kinetic sculpture designed by Clayton Boyer, built by Joe Stubler. The kinetic sculpture is made of two parts which rotate in opposite directions and with different speeds.
