A lot of people have been asking me how I create my renderings. Since I am finished with grad school, I decided to develop some tutorials that explain techniques I used throughout architecture school. Many of the techniques only require Sketchup and Photoshop. Others later on will be a little more advanced and involve rendering programs that can be downloaded for free. .

Kangaroo discussions and examples from GH forum home about us contact RHINO: GRASSHOPPER DEFINITIONS - RHINO / GH This definition was developed for my final thesis project to generate a louver system based on functional requirements within the building. The performance was then tested in Ecotect. A large part of my thesis design involved invertible arena seating with many moving parts.

Beautiful Water Effect in Photoshop CC It's been quite a long time since I played with water textures. I was checking some amazing artworks on Behance and Pinterest when I saw some examples that really inspired me to try something and learn a little bit more about Photoshop and the Displace filter. So for this tutorial I will show you how to create a really cool effect with water texture and the displace filter. Step 1 Open Photoshop and create a new document.

40 Best Photoshop Tutorials From 2011 This is a collection of my personal favourite Photoshop tutorials created throughout 2011 which have the best final outcome. Their is a lot of ways to learn photoshop, by far the best way to improve your photoshop skills is by doiing tutorial, i’m certain that any tutorial on this list will help teach you some new skills. 1. Create “Cool” Typography Using Paths in Photoshop In this tutorial you will demonstrate how to create some “cool” custom typography. FORM+CODE In Design, Art, and Architecture by Casey Reas, Chandler McWilliams, and LUST Repeat: RECURSIVE TREE Within the domain of image making, recursion involves drawing a group of related, self-similar shapes. Treelike forms are a clear example — each branch spawns many smaller branches, which in turn spawn more branches.

Fishtnk Design Factory [archive/blog] In collaboration with: Dan Hambleton, MESH consultants. The study has been on going collaborative project which has resulted in a unique approach on structural optimization and material performance analysis furniture and product design for. With the increase of analytic + parametric software presence in design processes, the ideas of mass-customization in large scale production becomes more approachable than ever. The Vessel Chair by fishtnk became a case study for this research. The outcome is developed as a malleable algorithm to be applied to different disciplines for material and structural optimization on the principals of mass-customiza

TOM WISCOMBE DESIGN - Dragonfly In nature, the dragonfly wing is unmatched in its structural performance and exquisite formal variation. Its morphology cannot be traced to any single bio-mathematical minima or optimum, but is rather the complex result of multiple patterning systems interweaving in response various force flows and material properties. Dragonfly wings consist of both honeycomb patterns which are flexible and exhibit membrane behavior and ladder-type patterns which are stiff and exhibit beam-like behavior. These patterns are characterized by their rule-based interaction in terms of cell density, cell shape, and cell depth, as well as other parameters affecting overall wing performance, such as out-of-plane pleating behavior and material distribution. A composite of distributed and linear structural formations, the dragonfly wings are fields of continuous variation and adaptation evolving toward overall robustness.
