The Smart Slab enhances the excellent structural properties of concrete with a radical new aesthetic enabled by the 3D-printed formwork.

The Smart Slab - 3D-printed formwork for a radical new concrete aesthetic

Innovation The pioneering construction method of the Smart Slab uses 3D-printed formwork for casting and spraying concrete in geometrically complex shapes. 3D printing overcomes the geometric limitations of traditional formwork fabrication methods. Furthermore, it enables the construction of integrative concrete elements with elaborate, free-form and highly detailed surfaces and smart construction details. 3D printing has the added benefit that geometric complexity and differentiation come at no additional production cost.

Context The Smart Slab is part of the DFAB HOUSE, a collaborative demonstrator of the NCCR Digital Fabrication for the NEST building of Empa and Eawag. LightWeight Structure.

p5. What Is the Microsoft .NET Framework, and Why Is It Installed on My PC? If you’ve been using Windows for very long at all, you’ve probably heard of Microsoft’s .NET, probably because an application asked you to install it, or you noticed it in your list of installed programs.

What Is the Microsoft .NET Framework, and Why Is It Installed on My PC?

Unless you’re a developer, you don’t need a lot of knowledge to make use of it. You just need it to work. But, since we geeks like knowing things, join us as we explore just what .NET is and why so many applications need it. The .NET Framework, Explained The name “.NET Framework” itself is a bit of a misnomer. And that’s just one tiny example.

So, why is the name a misnomer? Because in addition to serving as a framework of shared code, .NET also provides a runtime environment for applications. There are several advantages to having applications run inside a runtime environment. What Is the Microsoft .NET Framework, and Why Is It Installed on My PC? Software + Tools – PROVING GROUND.

Ball-Nogues Studio

The competition invites emerging architects to propose an installation for the courtyard of P.S.1 in Long Island City, Queens. The objective of the Young Architects Program is to identify and provide an outlet for emerging young talent in architecture, an ongoing mission of both MoMA and P.S.1. This year, five finalists selected by a closed nomination process were asked to present designs for an installation at P.S.1. The winning installation, Liquid Sky, designed by Ball-Nogues (Los Angeles), will be on view in the P.S.1 courtyard beginning June 21. Additonal packages. Additonal packages.

Code Editors. History of the Spline Computational Curve and Design. I recently published an academic paper answering the question: where do curves come from?

History of the Spline Computational Curve and Design

I started this research well over a decade ago when I was working everyday with 3D design software at Grimshaw architects in London. The research began when I gave an internal presentation to overcome the architects’ reticence about using 3D software to design their curved buildings (something the practice was already famous for). My quest to demystify curvilinear geometry by explaining its origins and mechanics was fascinating, but also challenging, as I don’t have a technical background in mathematics or computational geometry.

I hope that this article will help designers and anyone interested in understanding the origins of our contemporary design language.

Description Description Now in its eighth year, the Design Computation Symposium is one of the premier events at Autodesk University.

Design Computation Symposium

This year we are broadening the reach of the half-day symposium with the theme: “Ubiquitous Computing: How Computing Is Being Made More Accessible.” Writing code has traditionally been the realm of computer nerds and scientists. Today, high-school, middle school, and even elementary school students are learning programming.

Simple collaboration from your desktop. Turtle. OpenSourceTools. 5 Ways Computational Design Will Change the Way You Work - ArchSmarter - These days, nearly every architect uses a computer. Whether it’s for 3D modeling, or documentation or even creating a program spreadsheet, computers are well entrenched within the profession. Architects now need to know almost as much about software as they do about structures, building codes, and design. As our tools become more powerful and sophisticated, we need to evolve and develop our working methods in order to stay competitive. I’ve written previously about how architects should learn to code. A lot of the problems we need to solve don’t fall within the capabilities of off-the-shelf software.

That said, the reality is that not everyone has the time or the inclination to learn how to code.

Shape Interrogation for Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing (Hyperbook Edition) Elements of parametric design – Woodbury. Robert Woodbury was studying parametric design before it even had a name – in 1990 Woodbury called it variational geometry and it was only later that ‘parametric design’ stuck. Many of the early pioneers of parametric design have gone on to do other things – or nothing at all – but Woodbury has defined his career by studying parametric design and in particular, how designers use parametric software.

The list of papers he has written on the subject is a paper in itself. That is to say, when Woodbury writes a book titled “Elements of Parametric Design,” take notice.
