Venation Patterns

In this paper by Sabri Gokmen a morphogenetic approach will be introduced that looks at Goethean morphology and leaf venation patterns.

Body Patterning Responsive and Interactive Building Envelope

Body Patterning

In this paper by Hülya Oral and Gülen Çağdaş, the changes on the bodies of color and form changing living organisms are implemented to the building envelope as a dynamic process of adapting to the environment in terms of interaction.

Optimization of the Environmental Performance of Facades

Optimization of Facades

In this thesis by Mahmoud Islam Abdelhay Gadelhak a simplified framework and design decision support tool was developed to aid designers and architects in the domain of multidimensional optimization of building facades

Adaptive Façades An Integrated Algorithmic Approach

Adaptive Facades

Parametric Models of Facade Designs of High-Rise Residential Buildings

Parametric Facades

This research by Yuchen Sharon Sung and Yingjui Tseng involves a study of skins of high-rise residential buildings using the methodology of shape grammar to find out the rules which determine the combinations of the facade patterns and to analyze the patterns’ parameters using software Grasshopper.

Arachne 3D Printed Facade

Arachne

Arachne by Archi-Solution Workshop is a digital architectural endeavor to redefine an ordinary building with 3D printed components. It’s installed by the spatially intertwined lattices that hung on the building in the curtain wall mechanism.

lacime architects cover exhibition hall with undulating facade in suzhou, china

Undulating Facade

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.’ 

Zahner Factory Parametric Facade

Zahner Factory

The form for the façade by Crawford Architects was derived from metal oxidation patterns inspired by those found on Zahner’s campus. A computer based algorithm converted the sketch’s tonal values into a 3-dimensional digital surface model of the façade.

S2OSB Headquarters Facade

S2OSB Headquarters

S2OSB by BINAA – Building INnovation Arts Architecture is a pioneering management building, headquarters and conference hall. Uniting the vision of the client, it is also an iconic structure in the area, engaging people into a new way of looking.

Mercury Theatre Parametric Facade

Mercury Theatre

A deep facade of wooden blades, designed in a wave-shape by Project Meganom, gives the building dynamics, while remaining stable.
