The ‘Swarm Light’ by rAndom International is an experimental light installation with a real ‚collective consciousness’ that subtly reacts to the viewer’s audible presence.
“Echo” by Breakfast is a multi-sensory experience that visualizes real-time data occurring on social media through ripples that move across the surface. As the amount of social posts changes, it will impact the clarity of your portrait.
The project “Responsive Surface Structure” by Steffen Reichert is based on an experimental, inductive design approach. The project aims at creating a differentiated skin structure that can change its porosity in response to changes in ambient humidity and moisture.
This paper by Mohammad Kouchaki, Mohammadjavad Mahdavinejad, Parastoo Zali and Shahab Ahmadi, investigates innovative implementation of bricks in kinetic architecture.
This thesis by Xiangru Chen is to design a mix-use pavilion, which detects occupancy and lighting/temperature conditions, and then transforms its structure in shape and scale to satisfy the spatial demands for the use.
MorphoLuminesence by Project One Studio is a kinetic ceiling prototype that reacts to people standing and moving beneath it. Sensors detect speed and direction of people in relation to the piece. If a user stands still for a long enough period of time, the petals will retract into the completed surface.
Commissioned by iGuzzini, Light Pollination consists of 20,000 LED lights embedded on the ends of fibre-optic cables. These gently pulse with light to mimic the phenomenon of bioluminescence in nature.
Resonant Chamber, an interior envelope system that deploys the principles of rigid origami, transforms the acoustic environment through dynamic spatial, material and electro-acoustic technologies. The aim of rvtr is to develop a soundsphere able to adjust its properties in response to changing sonic conditions.
Designed by Platige Image and Bridge, BIOSTAGOG is an interactive sculpture that combines algorithmic design, 3D printing, mapping and interaction. BIOSTAGOG was created to be a living organism in the lobby of Platige that takes an active part in the company’s everyday life.
As part of two NSF funded projects in the Sabin Design Lab at Cornell University, eSkin and KATS, ColorFolds is one product of ongoing trans-disciplinary research spanning across the fields of cell biology, materials science, physics, electrical and systems engineering, and architecture.
The Design team at PA Consulting, based in Cambridge, UK, created the BathPod in response to a concept brief. PA Design set out to combine ergonomics for the bathroom with digital interaction. The look aims to stand out while blending in through a range of textural finishes.
In this paper by Masaaki Miki, Jun Mitani and Takeo Igarashi, authors developed a set of Grasshopper components which enables interactive physics simulation based on the finite element method (FEM). They named this add-on Ricecooker.
In collaboration with microsoft research, artist-in-residence jenny sabin has designed the ‘ada’ installation for the tech company’s redmond campus. The work takes its name from ada lovelace, mathematician who is often credited as one of the first computer programmer.
The present thesis by Daniel Akesson aims to integrate structural feedback with geometric modeling. The user interfaces of conceptual design tools should be interactive and agile enough to follow the designer’s iterative workﬂow.
Giuseppe Ridolfi and Arman Saberi’s students at The University of Florence designed an interactive smart facade using Rhinoceros 3D, Grasshopper 3D and Kangaroo Physics.
