In this research by Bojan Tepavčević, Vesna Stojaković and Dejan Mitov, authors present a design for a mass customization online 3D model for deployable emergency shelter that automatically provides drawings for CNC machines.
In this thesis by Jiani Zeng, author proposed to get away from surface obsession in object and industrial design, by adding another dimension to the material interface. By embedding information into three-dimensional matter, she introduced volumetric material.
This paper proposes an extension to an existing algorithmic design framework for the design exploration, analysis, and optimization of facades to support a Textual Programming Language-based approach that handles Visual Input Mechanisms.
In this research by Kamil Sharaidin, kinetic facades are defined as the ability to response and adapt to the changes of the environmental conditions. The strategies mainly focus on the functions and performances of kinetic facades in the context of indoor daylight...
The aim of this paper is to address a design exploration that combines the use of algorithmic modeling in order to create a design that seeks to express meaning through emotional bonds with people.
This paper presents a framework for integrating responsive and kinetic systems in the architectural design studio. The framework builds on findings of two design studios conducted at The American University in Cairo, Egypt.
This paper aims to address innovative approaches in the pedagogical aspects of architecture by describing the work of AA Summer DLAB and Athens | Istanbul Visiting Schools of the Architectural Association School of Architecture.
The current research is focused on the implementation of hierarchical porosity in the field of architecture and the use of stereotomic models in order to generate, articulate and evaluate intentional voids in architectural and structural design.
This paper by Brandon Clifford and Wes McGee proposes to use a particle-spring system in response to a desired form in order to generate a variable-volume, compression-only structure fabricated of volumetric material.
Geodesic Heat Method Is a small plugin by Mathwhittaker which Implements the Heat Method created by Keenan Crane. It contains three components...
This article is describing a process for conformal 3D printing onto inflated substrates. The article describes the design and build of a custom-built four-axis 3D printer with the ability to measure the shape of any uneven substrate.
Naturally occurring branching tree forks seem to exhibit outstanding strength and material efficiency. This thesis by Ishani Desai advances the use of tree forks as a natural connection in structures through two specific contributions.
Physarealm by maajor is a grasshopper plugin for agent-based modelling based on Physarum Polycephalum. It is a stigmergy algorithms similar to ant colony algorithm.
This research by Chin Koi Khoo, explores the potential for designing responsive architectural morphing skins with kinetic materials that have integrated sensing and luminous abilities.
This research by Filipa Peres Frangolho Crespo Osório, proposes the exploration of rigidly folding origami surfaces as the means to materialize reconfigurable spaces through motion.
HankinArrow by Rudwankd is an islamic ornament drawing assistant. This is an experimental plugin to help those who research and/or draw islamic ornaments mostly to automate repeatable constructs.
This paper by Pablo Baquero, Victor Calixto, Affonso Orciuoli and Charles C Vincent explains how parametric methods are informed by simulation and prototyping, methods that were deployed during some series of digital fabrication workshops.
Super Delaunay plugin by Daniel González Abaldeallows you to compute the power diagram on a set of weighted points and returns: weighted voronoi, minimum spanning tree, relative neighbourhood graph, nearest neighbor graph...
This doctoral thesis by Jonas Runberger is situated within the digital design field of architecture, and is a continuation of the licentiate thesis Architectural Prototypes: Modes of Design Development and Architectural Practice.
This dissertation shows how the design of constrained structural systems is better solved by an inverse form-finding process, where the parameters and initial conditions of the direct form-finding process are automatically adjusted to match the design intent.
String Art Generator by Yiran is a grasshopper plugin which generates a string art sequence based on an input image. You can use this plug-in to make your own string art.
A renewed interest in stereotomy, narrowly entwined with digital technologies, has allowed for the recovery and proposal of new techniques and expressions in this building approach.
This paper will explore how the Dougong components could be reinvented through the use of parametric tools and robotic fabrication methods and thus applied to contemporary architectural structures.
In this paper an `Interactionist' model of cognizant architecture is proposed as a method of investigating the development process by inverting the conventional concept of maze design.
