in this video, you can look at different parametric towers with parametric designs.
Drone based technology is the solution to overcome the limitation of surface road capacity in cities.
Augmented reality (AR) is the integration of digital information with the user's environment in real-time.
In this Rhino Grasshopper Tutorial, we will first take a look at some related projects to Auxetics & Metamaterials and then we will use the Linketix Plugin to design several Auxetic patterns.
Barrier-grid animation or picket-fence animation is an animation effect created by moving a striped transparent overlay across an interlaced image.
Civil engineering students explore the field of engineering by making bridges using spaghetti as their primary building material. Then they test their bridges to see how much weight they can carry before breaking.
Given that the need for skilled bricklayers and for more homes are both rapidly increasing globally, automating the bricklaying process for faster, mass construction is an obvious answer.
Projection mapping is a 3D video projection technique using light and colors to project virtual images on irregular shapes and non-flat surfaces like industrial sites, public buildings, city landmarks... Everything is a blank canvas.
Reciprocal frames (RF) are a family of structures that increasingly are attracting interest from many participants in the construction industry.
Biomimetic architecture is a multi-disciplinary scientific approach to sustainable design that goes beyond using nature as inspiration for aesthetics but rather deeply studying and applying construction principles that are found in natural environments and species.
Voronoi diagrams were considered as early as1644 by René Descartes. They were also studied by Georgy Voronoi (1868-1908), the inventor of an original method of diagrams, who extended the investigation of Voronoi diagrams to higher dimensions.
A deployable structure is a structure that can reconfigure and change shape/size mainly from folding and unfolding, and has many applications from daily essentials (e.g., umbrella), vascular stents, to solar panels for spacecraft.
Origami is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. One uncut square of paper can, in the hands of an origami artist, be folded into a bird, a frog, a sailboat, or a Japanese samurai helmet beetle. Origami can be extraordinarily complicated and intricate.
Kinetic art is art from any medium that contains movement perceivable by the viewer or that depends on motion for its effect.
Topology optimization is a mathematical method which spatially optimizes the distribution of material within a defined domain, by fulfilling given constraints previously established and minimizing a predefined cost function.
3D printing ceramics has inspired a new generation of artists, sculptors, and architects attracted to the ornate and exceptionally detailed shapes that would be impossible or too labor intensive using traditional ceramic processes.
Minimal surfaces are defined as surfaces with zero mean curvature.Minimal surfaces may also be characterized as surfaces of minimal surface area for given boundary conditions.
The geometric patterns in Islamic tile consist of simple shapes that are combined, interlaced, duplicated, and laid out in complex designs.
In computer science, a fractal tree index is a tree data structure that keeps data sorted and allows searches and sequential access in the same time as a B-tree but with insertions and deletions that are asymptotically faster than a B-tree.
A space-filling curve maps a 1-dimensional space onto a higher-dimensional space, the unit interval onto the unit square.
Dutch design lab Studio Roosegaarde has built a dome of metallic flowers that appear to come to life as they sense the presence of visitors inside a church in Lille, France (+ movie).
Researchers at ETH Zurich have used 3D-printed formwork elements made from recyclable mineral foam to create a pre-cast concrete slab, which they say is lighter and better insulated while using 70 per cent less material.
A variety of structures in nature exhibit sparse, thin, and intricate features.It is challenging to investigate these structural characteristics using ...
