This study investigated the effects of additive digital fabrication (dfab) on productivity by analyzing the cost and time required for the construction of a robotically-fabricated complex concrete wall.

This paper by Seyed Morteza Hosseini, Masi Mohammadi, Torsten Schroder, Olivia Guerra-Santin , explores for the first time, the possibility of coupling a kinetic façade with colored glasses to improve the daylight performance. This research builds on a combination of relevant literature and parametric simulation to investigate the development of integration of colored glass from Orosi with interactive kinetic façades, triggered by sun timing and occupants’ positions.

In this Grasshopper example file You can use the tOpos plugin to optimize a central Column for supporting the floor slabs.

This book is edited by Neils Martin, Larsen Og, Anne Mette Boye. It brings together contributions from the seminar on digital fabrication in tomorrows architecture and discusses about digital fabrication and digital form generation that can change the way different professions interact in relation to the development and construction of architecture.

In this grasshopper example file you can create different patterns by rotating a series of parametric polygons.

In this grasshopper example file you can create a series of parametric Intertwined Stairs.

this paper by Anas Hameed Majeed, Huda Al-Alwan, Nazar Oukaili, aims to establish a theoretical framework to determine dimensional rules as formation techniques and utilize them as tools in designing processes, to finally benefit to attain several free-form geometries in architecture now and in the future.

In this grasshopper example file you can convert a parametric surface into a series of pipes.

In this grasshopper example file you can create a polygonal based ramp by finding the solid intersection of polygonal extrusion and a spiral surface.

This paper by Monica Sroka-Bizon, presents Architectural Geometry that is an area of research, which combines applied geometry and architecture.

In this grasshopper example file you can create a 3d pattenr on any surface. The pattern is related to the surface curvature.

In this grasshopper example file You can use the Kangaroo2 plugin to model a relaxed mesh as a roof and convert it into a structure.

This paper by A. Heidari, S. Sahebzadeh, M. Sadeghfar, B. Erfanian Taghvaei, seeks to illustrate the evolution history of Parametric Architecture and describe the reasons why parametric architecture, in its second phase of evolution, called “Parametricism 2.0”, is showing promising abilities in solving more and more intricate socio-environmental problems.

In this Grasshopper example file You can use the Physarealm plugin to create a growing fractal-based pattern on a base surface.

This article by Gary P. T. Choi, Levi H. Dudte, and L. Mahadevan, proposes a condition for producing kirigami patterns and mechanisms which are reconfigurable and rigid deployable allowing us to connect the compact states via a zero-energy family of deployed states.

The article by Aurel von Richthofen, Katja Knecht, Yufan Miao, and Reinhard König, proposes a method for teaching advanced urban design to working professionals in Singapore. The article aims to expand the discourse on parametric urban design education by introducing ‘Urban Elements’ as conceptual urban design instruments with an inherent rule based logic, which can help to bridge gaps in teaching parametric urban design thinking.

In this grasshopper example file you can create a parametric vault by using the kangaroo2 plugin.

This paper by Lotte Aldinger, Georgia Margariti, Axel Körner, Seiichi Suzuki, Jan Knippers, presents a design to fabrication framework for the mold-less construction of double curved composite lattice surfaces based on inherent material behavior.
