Efficient Complex Geometries
In this thesis by Ardavan Bidgoli, author has investigated the architectural robotics opportunities by reviewing its design space and characteristics in academia and practice.
In this thesis by Nicolas Ruffray, the impact of PCE superplasticisers on the nucleation and formation of hydrates in fresh model cement pastes was investigated by using cryo-FIB-SEM nano-tomography.
Loop by Antonio Turiello is a simple component to iterate generative shapes with Grasshopper
This thesis, explores computation as a communicative device between the physical and the digital, establishing a conversation between a material assembly and a digital model as a tool to inform the logic of the assembly's internal organization.
The Greenhouse and Cabinet of Future Fossils was commissioned by the American Philosophical Society Museum, funded by Heritage Philadelphia Program, a program of The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
This thesis by Berfin Evrim, presents research that combines weaving and 3D Printing to fabricate a textile that will be used for supporting the weight of a person sitting on a stool or chair. This textile uses carbon-reinforced polymers and jute fibers.
Chameleon by MWG creates a live link between Grasshopper and Zbrush to quickly exchange geometry and parametrically set up command sequences. You can quickly send preset commands or your own custom ZScript to Zbrush.
In this paper by Olga Mesa, Saurabh Mhatre and Martin Bechthold, Simple fabrication and economic actuation principles are proposed to transform planar fabrics into three-dimensional configurations without using expensive molds.
This research by Obando Erik, evaluates a methodology where PD and BIM modelling are coupled since the conceptual design stage. For this purpose, a residential building with a pixel/pop-out architectural concept is developed in its conceptual phase.
This article, demonstrates the design potentials of a recently developed approach for generating smooth poly-hypar surfaces, freeform surfaces made of combinations of hyperbolic paraboloids (hypars).
The topic of this research by Anna Szabo is thin folded concrete structures that provide a material-efficient solution for spanning large distances due to the increased load-bearing capacity of their folded form.
Borne from the complex negotiation between liquid mass and tensile constraint, flexible formwork castings are resonant with material energy. Hard as stone, yet visually supple and fluid, the pre- cast architectural assemblies produced using flexible formwork techniques.
This thesis by Judyta M. Cichocka presents a design-oriented methodology for the design, optimization and construction of sequentially erected elastic timber gridshells. A multi-objective approach toward simultaneous optimization of the overall size and grid configurations.
This paper by Isak Worre Foged and Esben Skouboe Poulsen, illustrates responsive systems, which focus on the implementation of multi-objective adaptive design prototypes from sensored environments.
This thesis by Sen Dai proposes a modularized mechanism for designing transformable materials, as well as a design tool to help the designer make reconfigurable transformable material structures.
Monoceros was developed at studio Subdigital by Ján Toth and Ján Pernecký. Monoceros is an implementation of the Wave Function Collapse (WFC) algorithm developed for game design by Maxim Gumin and extended and promoted by Oskar Stålberg with his game Townscaper.
This paper discusses certain modes of research and their derivatives through a case study, Spülenkorb, as an entry into a digital fabrication competition by Texfab, in which the project received honorable mention.
This paper investigates the development of "3D printed ceramic green wall", a technological Nature Based Solution (NBS) aimed at regenerating urban areas by improving spatial quality and sustainability through clean and autonomous energy production.
This thesis by Mathias Bernhard seeks to provide a map of the current computational design landscape. The theoretical first part constructs a series of five dualities around design, geometry representation and their related data structures.
The intent of this paper by Jenny E. Sabin and Peter Lloyd Jones, is to jointly investigate fundamental processes in living systems, their potential application in the novel design of responsive surfaces and spatial structures, and their applicability in biomedicine.
This paper introduces double through tenon joints, which allow for the rapid, precise and fully integral assembly of doubly-curved folded surface structures with two inter- connected layers of cross-laminated engineered wood panels.
This study by Prageeth Jayathissa, first presents a performative design environment that combines multiple technological branches into a single automated work-flow.
By integrating responsive sensing systems, this paper demonstrates real-time feedback loops that consider the spontaneous agency and intuition of the architect (or craftsperson) rather than the execution of static or predetermined designs.
This thesis by Aluna Everitt, presents accessible digital fabrication approaches that support the development of shape-changing displays with a range of application examples – such as physical terrain modelling and interior design artefacts.
