This thesis by Alexandra Adelle Hinkel Cheng presents an example of a project executed in a co-rationalized manner through architectural and structural collaboration, using both digitally-integrated and analog models, for the design and construction of solid timber shells structures.

Integrated Algorithmic Design

Integrated Algorithmic Design

This thesis by Renata Alves Castelo Branco aims to explore the advantages an algorithmic approach can bring to the design process, and investigate, at the same time, how to bridge the gap between the different tools with which architecture currently operates

Parametric Structures

Parametric Structures

The aim of the thesis by Daniel Wallin and Martin Wasberg was to investigate if the use of parametric design tools from both architects and structural engineers could be a way of making the design process more effective. This thesis also include testing the structural plug-ins of the parametric design tools.

Performance through Thickfolds

Performance through Thickfolds

Performance through thickfolds by Torsten Sack-Nielsen approaches climate-responsive behaviours through shape, materialisation and kinematics. In this PhD project, folding is investigated phenomenologically, exploratively as well as experimentally, to exploit and document on how climate-responsive performance potentials can be utilised in architecture.

Stalactite Installation Art

Stalactite

TETRO+A and WHITEvoid present its immense light structure ‘STALACTITE’ which floats above the audience of the bright brussels festival 2018 in belgium. it invites to ‘switch off’ the irrelevant and concentrate on the bliss of the pure audio-visual statement.

Structural Evaluation Assistant

Structural Evaluation

The goal of this research by Lukáš Kurilla is to raise interest of architects in structural behavior of design in its conceptual phase. Therefore, this research deals with the development of a middleware – a bridging tool between the finite element (FE) solver (OOFEM) and the architectural modeller (Rhino3D).

Topological Metamaterial

Topological Metamaterials

Researchers at the University of Michigan have created a topological metamaterial that allows the material to switch between being hard as steel and soft as rubber. The researchers discovered a way to compose a metamaterial that can be easily manipulated to increase the stiffness of its surface by orders of magnitude— the difference between rubber and steel.

Design for Deconstruction

Design for Deconstruction

This Master’s thesis by Anastasios Kokkos is focused on the ambiguous topic concept of Designing for Deconstruction and its application within the construction industry with a computational approach.

Universal Bracket

Universal Bracket

Paul Robinson has been working on  a universal bracket that can be used not only for any frequency geodesic dome but many other structures as well. A single universal bracket that can join any number of struts at any angle.

Sphere Triangular Paneling

Sphere Triangular Paneling

In this definition you can panelize any mesh (triangular subdivision) by Weaverbird plugin and moving panels due to one of triangle’s side.

َScience Toys

َScience Toys

This video by PhysicsFun would show you 3 minutes of oddly satisfying scientific curiosities feauturing various engines with candles, ferrofluid toys, kinetic art that uses physics, optical illusions, various forms of dices, math toys/shapes and more mindblowing stuff!

Multi Objective Design Interface

Multi Objective Design

The aim of this thesis by Robert Vierlinger is the development of basic structures for a flexible generation and optimization framework for practical use in the sense of a continuously accompanying design explorer, in which parameterization is adaptable and objective functions are changeable at any time during the design process.

Venation Definition

Venation

In this Grasshopper definition you can venate (Network of curve among points) on any geometry by using parakeet plugin and fattener component.

Conical Pattern Definition

Conical Pattern

In this Grasshopper definition you can generate conical pattern by defining a curve due to perpendicular lines that divide on the curve.

Building Performance Sketching

Building Performance Sketching

This study by Elzine Braasch investigated the question of whether the distributed model method (DMM) could be perceived by the New Zealand building industry’s architects and engineers as overcoming barriers which prevent them from implementing building performance sketching within their design processes.

Strategies for Parametric Design

Strategies for Parametric Design

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.

Transforming Furniture

Transforming Furniture

Transforming furniture refers to a broad category of products and home furnishings that have more than one practical function. This can range from something as simple as a sofa bed or an extension table to more hyper-functional pieces such as our wall beds or modular home offices.

Robotic Fabrication System

Robotic Fabrication System

The project Mobile Robotic Fabrication System for Filament Structures by Maria Yablonina, demonstrates a new production process for filament structures. It proposes multiple semi-autonomous wall climbing robots to distribute fiber filament, using any horizontal or vertical surface.

Parametric Architecture

Parametric Architecture

The interest of this research by Francesco di Niccolo focuses on the dynamics and the potential of computational design, in particular through the parametric design and writing algorithms. The research has attempted to outline the main design methodologies in the vast panorama of computational design.

Drones Find Missing Objects

Drones Find Missing Objects

RFly, a drone-based wireless system that was designed by MIT researchers can scan and locate items in warehouses. The system leverages cheap, battery-free RFID (Radio Frequency Identifier) stickers, which are attached to every item in the warehouse similar to barcodes.

Flexible Parametric Models

Flexible Parametric Models

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.

Broad Contemporary Art Museum

Broad Art Museum

Diller Scofidio + Renfro worked in close collaboration with Arup on the design of The Broad, helping showcase a “veil-and-vault” concept. This concept removes the normal museum archive and storage area as a place where items go to never be seen again.
