Curve to Surface « PARAMETRIC[ation] _ motion analysed - person walking up stairs There are three curves that were chosen to represent a person walking up a stairs; the motion of each of the legs and the motion of a person’s head. The curves from the legs overlap each other and skip a step each time while the curve from the head is a continuous one that moves in the same motion at each every step. By taking these curves and shifting the top curve down, I have chosen to develop a model that has two different surfaces defined by the head motion on the top and the feat motion on the bottom. _ curve analysis

DesignReform In this video, we cover the Spring Force within Kangaroo in a simple case. In this video, we give an introduction to the paneling tools within the LunchBox plugin for Grasshopper. In this video, we give an introduction of Kangaroo, a plugin for Grasshopper developed by Daniel Piker. Kangaroo can be downloaded at In this video, the Baking component in the LunchBox plugin is deomonstrated. Fabrication Grasshopper: Parametric CurvesThis module covers the basic parametric properties of curves along with common grasshopper methods for evaluating and dividing curves. 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.

Unrolling Surfaces in Grasshopper This Grasshopper definition is proof of concept for a VB component that unrolls developable surfaces to the XY plane. To make the component, I’ve adapted a rhinoscript by Andrew Kudless (of Matsys) to run in VB, enlisting the help of CCA student Ripon DeLeon to write the code.This example uses the VB component to create unrolled surfaces from 4 curves that I have distorted using the cage edit command in rhino. To use the definition on your own projects, simply choose any 4 curves to loft between in sequential order. Manual Grasshoppe Introducción y buena suerte!

DigitAG& » Archive » Hybrid* Hybrid is a design project for a new building for the School of Architecture of Washington University in St Louis. The main idea for the project was to fuse the limits between building and landscape. While many projects have dealt with that idea through buildings that emerge out of the ground, hybrid follows a different and maybe paradoxical approach. The building is elevated leaving the ground plane largely open. The design process begun with a study of all the possible movement routes that the site has to accommodate. Movement between the existing buildings and the entry points through the site.

Computational Design Sandbox On April 3-4, I had the pleasure of co-teaching a computational design and fabrication workshop together with Gonçalo Castro Enriques (X-REF) at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto (FAUP), Portugal.
