This parametric design video is about TELUS Sky, a 58-storey development in the 100 block of 7 Ave. S.W., will incorporate office space, retail stores and 341 residential rental suites.
Today, with the advent of digital media technologies and the ability to conceptualize, express and produce complex forms using digital means, the question of the
The ZCB Bamboo Pavilion is a public event space built for the Construction Industry Council’s Zero Carbon Building (ZCB) in the summer of 2015 in Kowloon Bay, Hong Kong.
USC School of Architecture ARCH 599 – Physical Computing Dynamic building facade parametric design
This parametric design video is about Wind Arbor by Ned Kahn on the western façade of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. which consists of over 260,000 aluminum “flappers”, blankets the hotel atrium’s external glass wall, creating a shimmering façade that responds to the environment.
The precise technology behind Luminous Patterns allows us to break away from previous design limitations.
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.
Interior Architecture : In this short video you can see the Parametric interior Design process for a waffle wooden structure. The process consists of designing the structure in Rhino and then the installation is started with connecting the parts together.
Flying through space and time using the new high speed camera
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.
The object of this parametric design was to produce an Automata that was inspired by the work of Reuben Margolin. All components were hand made the aim was to recreate the reaction of droplet as it impacts a body of water
Diffusion Choir is a kinetic sculpture in Massachusetts that moves like a flock of birds. It’s comprised of 400 origami-like birds that perform a synchronized dance.
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.
Advancing Wood Architecture offers a comprehensive overview of the new architectural possibilities that are enabled by cutting-edge computational technologies in wood construction.
The final prototype titled Hanging Liminality; a parametric design by James Ye-Won Lee and Jonathan Fernandes, two masters students at the University of Sydney. The installation uses 28 servo motors and an Arduino Mega.
This parametric design video is about the future of architecture: 3d printed buildings. 3D printing has the potential to revolutionize the way humans manufacture and build things, from the small scale to the very large. By combining robots with 3D printing, KUKA partner Branch Technology, working with the architects at Gould Turner Group
This paper introduces an intuitive method for the modelling of free-form architecture with planar facets. The method, called Marionette by the authors, takes its inspiration from descriptive geometry and allows one to design complex shapes with one projection and the control of elevation curves.
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
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.
There is a demand for mass-customized.architectural elements. Roboforming is an …
Bringing together experts from research and practice, Shell Structures for Architecture: Form Finding and Optimization presents contemporary design methods for shell and gridshell structures, covering form-finding and structural optimization techniques.
This parametric design video is about a kinetic light art installation. The Crystal Lights Chandelier is an art installation for the Tsvetnoy Central Market, a new department store in central Moscow.
WOOD PERFORMATIVE GRIDSHELL – Cantiere Didattico Sperimentale 2012 – 2013

Kinetic Art & Architecture : The elements consist of three straight line segments that are conjoined like a Z with 90 degree angles. Alternating them on the axle in a mirrored position makes the two helixes twist in opposite direction.
Sigrid Adriaenssens and Branko Glisic co-taught a course on German thin-shell structures at Princeton University that has resulted in a new exhibit, “Evolution of German Shells: Efficiency in Form.” The exhibit is on view on the Princeton campus in the Friend Center Engineering Library.
