In this grasshopper exercise file, you can learn how to rotate a series of panels based on an image. You can also extract an arc based on the angle of rotation.
Additive Formwork by Brian Peters, explores the potential and advantages of 3D printed, flexible formwork for precast concrete architectural applications.
This thesis by Sarah Sunyoung Park, will examine the design of an airport building through biomimicry. Because of a correlation between flights, airplanes, airports, and feathers, she has selected a feather for her biological inspiration.
Minima | Maxima is the latest Structural Stripes “Crawling Assembly'” from MARC FORNES / THEVERYMANY. This permanent installation provides a moment of contemplation amid the busy grounds of World Expo 2017 in Astana, Kazakhstan.
This investigation will analyse and define the definition for Parametricism. It will analyse and compare multiple parametric theories. Then using case studies to endeavour how parametricism has been used in the design process.
Designer Antony Gibbon has visualised a conceptual house called Twine, which sits under a wave-like piece of concrete within a landscape of rolling hills. Gibbon conceived Twine as a twisting concrete structure, which reflects the hills surrounding.
Federico Reyneri, partner at LPzR associates architects, and his research team started to analyse the Guggenheim Helsinki Design Competition, the largest architectural design competition in world history.
This article by Ajla Aksamija and Ivanka Iordanova discusses interaction between multimodal representations of architectural design knowledge, particularly focusing on relating explicit and implicit types of information.
Spectral Grove is a permanent outdoor public installation of cascading, latticed ribbons of colored aluminum and steel at the entrance of Pivot Park in West Philadelphia.
NBBJ & Yassir Khalil Studio shared their vision for the new Grand Stade de Casablanca. Their goal is to create a center for sports which is keenly in tune with the natural environment, geography, and history of the nation of Morocco.
The 45-storey Leeza Soho skyscraper by the late Zaha Hadid in Beijing, China, contains the world’s tallest atrium twisting through its centre. As it rises, the Leeza Soho’s void twists by 45 degrees and creates convex openings either side of the tower.
Scale turns the acoustic wall panel on its ear. Designed as a university project by Vanessa Busemann and Felix Zebi with German design collective, Cabs Design, this modular wall system is made from cut and folded acoustic fiber composite.
Thomas Wing-Evans has created an interactive sound pavilion in collaboration with the DX Lab for the State Library of New South Wales in Australia, which takes paintings from the library’s collection and turns them into music.
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.
