I wrote these scripts for testing the use of distance value from a group of object to one attractor to define the scale of objects themselves, color shade and material color. It's just for fun and for exercise with VBrhinoscript. Download attractor.rvb Option Explicit rh_Object scale, shade color and material from an attractor point

example 02 The process already described is employed in the design of a specific project: a transportation node + shopping mall downtown St. Louis. The ‘node’ connects two metro stations and the train station and at the same time hosts a shopping mall. The building is developed in analogy to the human body: organs/bones/skin. The organs become the enclosed spaces, the bones the structural system and the skin an outer membrane that wraps the other two. The project is employing the latest building technology with a fiber-carbon structure and ETFE pillows for the outer skin.
Jonathan Tucker Little Tokyo Boutique Hotel and Theater After our midterm review, our project’s focus revolved around the facade system and its potential to dissolve the building corner and overall massing, such that no distinct elevations could legibly be distinguished from one another, but instead to create an overall effect of a hazy, ethereal, eroding mass. Recessed figures sweep around corners to erase the edge and create a continuous, soft wrap. Jonathan Tucker « ArchPin^Up
research » 2010 » January another particle test from within grasshopper – this script is more directly exploring the displayPipeline and grasshopper’s potential for colour and line weights from within VB components. still some issues with clearing the displayConduit on update but a call can be made to either pause or capture every frame before disposing… we’re now looking to further develop auto-organizational systems + network structures (via particles and chains) and will start posting our grasshopper definitions for public exploration by sometime next week. 3 people like this post.
Studio Digital Architectural Tools:Towards New Architectural Form and Tectonics
Content Architectural design pipelines are quickly becoming varied and complex. They span conceptual studies through to detail design, along complex trajectories. The workshop will focus on this fertile ground with exercises exploring connections between architecture, new media and fabrication. The aim will be to provide the programming and conceptual framework for more advanced digital methods within collaborative architectural design. The workshop will specifically focus on scripting within the process of interoperability through various stages of architectural design from concept sketches to downstream production.

The architectural domain seems increasingly interested in investigating novel strategies and processes from design to final materialization. Especially the advent of an empirical aptitude is setting the basis for the replacement of exhausted rationalistic design approaches and already acquainted processes of metaphorization. The research in Performative Design Processes for Architecture targets a non-linear and holistic approach to architectural design while stressing the necessity for an interdisciplinary aptitude.

We are working on an installation called CHROMAtex that is set to open at the Bridge Gallery on August 26th. The piece is comprised of over 4400 separate colorful panels. It is being made possible by all of our kind and generous friends who have donated to our Kickstarter page… Follow along, watch for updates and donate if you feel like it! **SOFTlab | LAB**

Architecture In this tutorial you will learn how can you create shell-like surfaces made of planar hexagons using Kangaroo´s Planrization Forces. CHROMAtex.me is an installationby SOFTlab for the bridgegallery ,the project was funded by offering a small ownership of the installation in exchange for a small donation. Continuing with the experimentation and research of the honeycomb morphologies and as a example for a Workshop I gave recently I . . . A Grasshopper definition that creates a boxes over surfaces for populating components in a diagrid patern.
FABRICATION: Gernot Riether’s translucent plastic pavilion » The project was selected for realisation at an annual AIA call of entries that asked for interventions to bring to life the historic city of New Orleans. Gernot Riether’s project suggests a series of pavilions sited within usually hidden, often private courtyards. CROSS FABRICATED SCALES
