Computational Design Italy
Following our recent interest in the fusion between the computational and the biological, which had its first milestone in the Bio-Logic workshop recently held in Amsterdam, we decided to take things further and worked 24-7 with a specialized… Read Article → Last June Co-de-iT was invited for tutoring the AA Visiting School Jordan 2013 from its director Riyad Joucka. The Visiting School took place from 1st-10th september in Amman. The workshop proposed the rethinking of the process of developing… Read Article →

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.

Display table demonstrating the tools and outcomes of rapid manufacturing and rapid prototyping with concret Earthscrapers is an installation for the 2010 Biennial of the Americas that imagines the potential of employing CAD and CAM processes in the construction of a proto-architectural landscape—one where the building material source and the building itself are seamless. It also demonstrates the internal design, research and experimentation process by Rael San Fratello Architects in hacking a 3D printer to rapid proto­type and rapid manufacture clays, ceramics and ultimately cement.

Scripting Posts Tagged ‘Scripting’ Shellstar Pavilion Date: 2012Size: 8m x 8m x 3mMaterials: 4mm Translucent Coroplast, Nylon Cable Ties, Steel Foundations, PVC and Steel Reinforcement ArchesTools: Rhino, Grasshopper, Kangaroo, Python, Lunchbox, RhinoscriptLocation: Wan Chai, Hong KongEvent: Detour 2012 Description: Shellstar is a lightweight temporary pavilion that maximizes its spatial performance while minimizing structure and material. Commissioned for Detour, an art and design festival in Hong Kong in December 2012, the pavilion was designed to be an iconic gathering place for the festival attendees.

DIY Architecture: First WikiHouses Built - The Pop-Up City - Waterfox It was one year ago that we brought you news of WikiHouse, the innovative open-source concept for housebuilding from London-based design team 00:/ (zero zero). The idea is to bring house design and construction to the masses through open-source designs that use easy-to-assemble CNC cutouts from standard sheets of plywood. Anyone can contribute designs, download models (that can generate code for CNC cutting) and assemble the components with minimal training or skill. architecture These are a series of experiments, in which the designer try to use parametric and digital method to realize these interesting optical illusion effects and generate 3d geometry or space rather than just 2d painting. Continue reading The design task of this project was to design a multifunctional theatre inside an old gasholder in the Hague the Netherlands.

Cody Davis Cloth Series | 2011.03 I developed a series of images using Autodesk Maya nucleus solver and ncloth. One of the variations was used for the cover of Composites, Surfaces and Software: Towards a High Performance Architecture, edited by Greg Lynn, Mark Foster Gage and Stephen Nielsen. Contributors for the book include Frank Gehry, Chris Bangle, Lise Anne Couture, Greg Foley, Bill Kreysler, Adriana Monk, William Pearson and Yale School of Architecture Dean Robert A.M. design playgrounds Posts Tagged ‘Parametric Architecture’ We are happy and excited to announce that finally after a long time we have a launch day for ThinkParametric. Hy-FI is the winning proposal for this year MoMA´s PS1 competition, a tower-like topology volume composed by compostable bricks that use corn stalks and mushroom roots in their process of elaboration.

List of minimalist artists Minimalism was an art movement that began during the 1960s and this list of minimalist artists are primarily artists whose works were done in the 1960s; and are considered minimal. Although some artists subsequently radically changed their work in the 1970s and in subsequent decades. This list in incomplete. no boxes! Fritz Obermeyer’s Jenn is a nicely crafted java application that allows a playful examination of structures in non-Euclidian space, more specifically Coxeter polytopes in stereographic projection. These complex geometric structures are the 4-dimensional Sisters to the polyhedra and have, what seems like, recursive interiors and packing formations that resemble bubbles in foam. The applet allows you to fly through these structures and orient the camera view according to your whims; other controls include toggles for the kind of rendering display settings. Perhaps I shouldn’t report it, but there are also some nice rendering glitches on some of the selected models on certain views. The word ‘polytope’ was introduced by Alicia Boole Stott , the daughter of logician George Boole. So the story goes, she had a remarkable understanding of 4- dimensional geometry (X,Y,X,Time) from an early age.

The Podcast about African History, Culture, and Politics Hikabwa Decius Chipande (PhD 2015 Michigan State) on the political and social history of football (soccer) in Zambia. He discusses becoming an historian; the game’s relationship with British colonizers, the copper mines, and postcolonial governments; and the archival research and oral interviewing process. Chipande concludes with insights from his extensive experience with sport development in Africa. 090711-parametric bridge – Thesis Final project- « eSCRIPT-O Some images from my final project for my master degree thesis. its a parametric bridge with a parametric skin – (hexatect). All the project it´s defined by scripting (rhinoscript) and some specific grasshopper definitions (vb.net) . I finally presented my thesis (to get the architect title and a master degree (2×1 super combo, hahaha) last month, and i got the maximum calification ( 7.0 out of 7.0!!!). im still celebrating , so when the celebration stops, i will post my thesis in PDF and the most important rhinoscript tools that i wrote for the projects. stay tuned to eSCRIPT-O Me gusta:

codedchromics I hadn’t heard about this before but fist (whoops, mean first) saw this earlier this month mentioned on Syuzi Pakhchyan’s blog Wearable Technology (always an inspiration!) Sophie de Oliveira Barata offers a ‘real’ option ‘surreal’ option and an ‘unreal’ option – you’ve just got to love that! Here are some of the incredible decorated and unusual prosthetics from The Alternative Limb Project - “The Alternative Limb Project offers a personal and friendly bespoke service, which provides unique prosthetics to blend in with the body or stand out as a unique piece of art, reflecting the wearer’s imagination, personality and interests. We will involve the wearer in all stages of the process from conception of ideas to the final work. An alternative-style limb can help to break down social barriers, delight the eye and provide an unusual talking point.”
