Socializarq. ‘‘ by SOFTlab “Parametricism” has become a byword of sorts for “indulgent” formmaking, or “form for form’s sake”. Yet inherent within parametric design is the ability to mass customize and localize individual components within the architectural form, thereby making more and more complex shapes that much easier to fabricate. This–the ability to increasingly realize complexity at architectural scales–is, no doubt, a significant development for the making and experiencing of architecture.

But fabrication is contingent on rapid-prototyping machines and their availability, which, more often than not, are out of reach to most architects and designers for extended periods of time. That’s the great thing about the GE Garages, a mobile lab that spreads the good news of rapid prototyping across the country. But hurry! ‘P-Wall‘ (2009) by Matsys. PARAMETRIC ARCHITECTURE.

Computing Kaizen Studio Toys

Join the Proxy mailing list to get infrequent announcements. The "Computing Kaizen" studio explored evolutionary architectural structures and their potential to anticipate change and internalize complex relationships. The studio used Processing, an open source platform for writing computational "sketches", to create intelligent building blocks that could self-organize into innovative forms. De-stressed BodiesProject by Biayna Bogosian "The project is a study of degradation of uniform networks overtime.The study focuses on the pinned down edges which take on the role of the most resistance, the torn edges and the in-between connecting members that oscillate between the reconfiguration of the forces within the whole network system.

ARCH 598 Summer 2011information >> n-formations FABRICS // LATTICES // FIELDSThis course is designed to introduce and explore computational design, algorithmic thinking, and digital manufacturing–both: the larger ramifications that emerging digital technologies and ideas are having architectural theory via readings, discussions, presentations; and the practical application of these ideas and tools through a series of hands-on, iterative modeling and fabrication assignments.

SIM_2011 by ESC-Studio [PROCESSING] SIM_2011 is a custom physics simulation software for tensile structures created by ESC-Stuido (Enrique Ramos, Silivia Polito yCiriaco Castro).This project sets out to generate and evolve different structural topologies within an environment in which physical laws are simulated, allowing for structural performance to be measured.

SIM_2011 by ESC-Studio [PROCESSING]

Two distinct sets of structures have been studied: – Predefined topologies: Structures defined by pre-set topologies, using the physical simulation engine to reach the equilibrium state defining the final form of the structure. – Evolutionary Topologies: A genetic algorithm defines the parameters of a constrained spring system that generates populations of structures evolving towards an optimised solution. The implemented architecture of nodes and links with embedded metadata containing the physical properties of the elements permitted the measurement of the total weight of the structures, maximum deflections, horizontal displacements and number of elements. « un didi.

Processing Architecture

Processing for Architecture. Glorieta Juan Carlos Iby in Mula,Spain by Esc Studio Processing started as a platform for introducing artists and designers to programming languages for the development of generative graphics , interactive applications and art pieces however as the platform has evolved with the creation of several libraries that implement ever growing new features , some of them bringing whole new technologies to the programming environment , professionals from various fields have found in Processing a very powerful tool for developing projects.

Processing for Architecture

Architects are not the exception given the great capacity of analysis and feedback it can offer for generative form finding and the ease of programming work environments that allows architects create their own software depending on the needs of an specific project, many architectural schools and leading architectural firms have started to include it as a tool for R&D. 3d voronoi structure – solids from nils seifert on Vimeo.
