The facades of the new exhibition hall are essential to the overall design by Lacime Architects with the most notable characteristic being the elegant and dynamic effect of the facade which appears as a ‘rising curtain.’
Although initially intended for academic purposes, this paper by Roberto Narváez-Rodríguez and José Antonio Barrera-Vera was finally led towards the development of hollow lightweight conical components to materialise rotational parabolic domes.
In this definition you can model a Step wall in Grasshopper. For the base unit you can control the height, count, width and depth of the stairs.
The focus of this project by Evelina Kourteva and Dermott Mc Meel is to investigate ‘digital design’ through the juxtaposition of a human driven and digitally supported creative process.
Based on the concept of listening to the sounds of the ocean inside a shell, STUDIOKCA, commissioned by NASA, has created the NASA Orbit Pavilion to immerse visitors in the sounds of satellites orbiting in outer space.
This desk organizer designed by “Things Design” is called CRID and is a creative contour grid which can be used for different purposes.
Meandering down a section of Robson Street on the iconic 800 block in downtown Vancouver, passers-by can sit, relax, play, and socialize on the “Urban Reef” installation designed by Kaz Bremner and Jeremiah Deutscher.
This document edited by Ramin Attar, Angelos Chronis, Sean Hanna and Michela Turrin includes subjects presented in SimAUD 2016 like building simulation, daylighting, urban networks & analysis, agent base modeling, data driven design, urban data, design decision support, design computation & methods, fabrication and form finding
Polina Timchenko in her thesis “Audio to Architecture: House Music as a Form Generator” is going to explore the idea that every house music component can be translated into geometry with the use of parametric design techniques.
This thesis by Roland Hudson is aimed at establishing a detailed understanding of the tasks related to parametric design and to develop a set of considerations that should be made when undertaking tasks related to this field. The position of the parametric designer in architectural practice presents new opportunities in the design process this thesis also aims to capture these.
In this thesis by Daniel Davis, he considers the relationship between the design of software and the design of flexible parametric models. and also considers, using a reflective practice methodology, how software engineering may inform parametric modelling.
