boston MASSACHUSETTS suckerPUNCH: Describe your project. Sophia X. CHANG: Suspense is a recent architectural installation at the INVIVIA Gallery in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Allen Sayegh (Co-founder of INVIVIA) and Ingeborg Rocker (Co-founder of Rocker-Lange Architects) curated and sponsored the installation, an unexpected fabric space that manipulates the architectural frame to blur the boundaries between inside and outside and piques the viewers’ awareness of their bodies in space.

Vertical Farm 3rd Place 2009 Skyscraper Competition Eric Vergne United States Third Place Rhino ++ Grasshopper – Plethora Project is an initiative to accelerate computational literacy in the frame of architecture and design. It aligns with the "show me your screens" motto of the TopLap live-coding group attempting to get rid of Obscurantism in digital design.

Dig Deeper into the Scandal Globally, extreme poverty has been halved in 20 years, and could be virtually wiped out by 2030. But much of the progress that has been made is at risk – not because of natural disasters or new diseases, but because of something far more insidious. Analysis by the ONE Campaign suggests that at least $1 trillion is being taken out of developing countries each year through a web of corrupt activity that involves shady deals for natural resources, the use of anonymous shell companies, money laundering and illegal tax evasion.

It is an advanced parametrically designed tower sitting at 160 meters featuring a leaning façade of 18 degrees off horizontal. This technically has given it the title of the most substantial lean to a building in the world according to the Guinness Book of World Records. The building contains a substantial concrete core slightly off center that carries the cantilevered floors. 490 pilings were cored to a depth of 30 meters to counteract the cantilever. A diagrid exterior structure made of triangular tubular steel units creates a ridged mesh to add support and act as a frame for the custom glazing units. The exterior was also developed to reduce the supports mass, thus weight.

Blog Archive » Attracted Flows This is a rhinoscript where you can set various points where vectors flow out from according to a certain velocity. As these vectors travel, the flows are attracted to the various attractor points in different weights three dimensionally. It simulates a close logic to the emitted particles being attracted to newton forces in Maya. Option Explicit ‘Script written by Howard Jiho Kim / Call Main() Parametric Design for Sustainable Skyscraper in Brazil Team: Patrick Bedarf, Tomas Kozelsky & Dimitrie Stefanescu. This Parametric Green design for Sustainable skyscraper designed by the team: Patrick Bedarf, Tomas Kozelsky & Dimitrie Stefanescu, for the Evolo 2011 competition. Their main goal was to push parametric design techniques as much as possible into an as experimental direction as they could allow. Located in Coari, Brazil, at the heart of the Amazon forest, this conceptual tower would be constructed in several phases.

hybridbiostructures: DigiHYBIOS 1.0 & AnaHYBIOS 3.0 / New Approach: From Digital FormFinding to Analogue Methods With the latest HYBIOS, we adopted a new approach. This time the experiment was based on a digital FormFinding algorithm using Daniel Piker's Kangaroo Plugin for Grasshopper. The new experiment also resolved some of the issues of the previous experiment. A cellular grid was used to generate a frame for pathways to have a more even floor to walk on. Manifest destiny In the 19th century, Manifest Destiny was the widely held belief in the United States that American settlers were destined to expand throughout the continent. Historians have for the most part agreed that there are three basic themes to Manifest Destiny: The special virtues of the American people and their institutions;America's mission to redeem and remake the west in the image of agrarian America;An irresistible destiny to accomplish this essential duty.[1]

Art art We design and build works of art created by artist Tony Robbin. Robbin successfully combines art, science, and mathematics. His quasi-crystal sculptures - based on quasi-crystal geometry - display exciting, non-repeating geometrical patterns. GRASSHOPPER TUTORIALS + EXERCISES The exercises below test basic competence using Grasshopper. Attempt to complete the exercises and if you need extra help refer to the tutorial PDFs. This tutorial introduces students to the workflow of Grasshopper by creating a simple definition that takes a reference direction from input curves and re-orients them to face an attractor point. This tutorial extends upon tutorial 01 by creating a simple definition that analyses the curvature of a doubly curved surface and indicates how this could be further extended to manipulate material qualities to achieve complex double curvature from perforations in a flat sheet. Information regarding the further extension of this definition is provided at the end of the tutorial. This tutorial will panel a surface with a specified grid of polylines using triangular, rectangular, hexagonal and radial grids.

Contrail - About Contrail Contrail is a public art project that celebrates shared spaces, helps make bicycling safer and more fun. How to Use Contrail Contrail attaches to your bicycles and, as you ride, the device leaves a colorful trail behind you. Contrail uses washable, non-toxic chalking fluid made from eco-friendly pigments. Like a jet's contrail, the lines on the road will fade with time and rain.
