Scientific Publications Geometric Multi-Covering.R. Strauss, F. Isvoranu, G. designcoding Maybe a huge kitsch for contemporary architecture, I know, but a good example of a fundamental problem of constructing geometric relationships. In ARCH362 today, we’ve examined the geometric modeling process that opens us parametric relationships just by converting it into a diagram of design history. You may follow the construction of such a diagram step by step and see the possible parameters emerged from it.

Architecture +Design + Computation gHowl gHowl_r50 and example files Check out the gHowl videos page where you can see how people have been using gHowl. Our users have connected Rhino and Grasshopper to various protocols, platforms, and softwares including: Processing Excel Open Office grasshopper « 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. The 2-day workshop, titled “Performative Morphologies“, was

Inorganic Speciation Inorganic Speciation by Iain Maxwell + Dave Pigram (supermanoueuvre) Form is the primary instrument through which architecture engages with the world. It is this firmly held position that motivates supermanoeuvre to develop custom methodologies of formation that allow for the explicit and open-ended negotiation between multiple architectural intentions and the complex milieux within which they will operate. These methodologies are algorithmic in nature, primarily digitally enacted, and extend the capacities of the form-finding tradition within architecture through a decoupling of its processes from the limits of physics, enabling a broader examination of the number and nature of negotiable inputs. The abstract notation underlying these algorithms enables a meta-analysis of the formational processes, which has an accelerating influence on their evolution, as experienced within other fields of intellectual and artistic endeavour.

Grasshopper Resources Volatile Prototypes / hoopsnake: Iteration in Grasshopper Update: Hoopsnake is now Opensource! More info at Github HoopSnake, apart from a legendary creature, is a component for the Grasshopper™ 3D platform. What it does in principle is to create a copy of the data it receives at it's input upon user request and store it locally. This duplicate is made available through a standard Grasshopper parameter output. What this means in practice is that it is possible through the use of HoopSnake to send the output of a set of components back to it's input in a looping fashion. Parametricism - A New Global Style for Architecture and Urban Design back to WRITINGS Parametricism - A New Global Style for Architecture and Urban Design Patrik Schumacher, London 2008 Published in: AD Architectural Design - Digital Cities, Vol 79, No 4, July/August 2009, guest editor: Neil Leach, general editor: Helen Castle Abstract: Though parametricism has its roots in the digital animation techniques of the mid-1990s, it has only fully emerged in recent years with the development of advanced parametric design systems. Parametricism has become the dominant, single style for avant-garde practice today. It is particularly suited to large-scale urbanism as exemplified by a series of competition-winning master-plans by Zaha Hadid Architects.

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.

Weaverbird 0.5.20 NewYear Weaverbird is a topological modeler that contains many of the known subdivision and transformation operators, readily usable by designers. Instead of doing the work repeatedly, or sometimes using complicated scripts, this plug-in reconstructs the shape, subdivides any mesh, even made by polylines, and helps preparing for fabrication. Weaverbird – For Rhino 6 using Yak. Owen Architects - Online Professional Portfolio Southern facade of a project using a mechanical iris system for light regulation. Prefabricated Mechanical Iris panels. We have included the files you will need to create your own mechanical iris.

Simulazioni in generale - DIVA per Rhino In the Metrics dialog box, there are many options which are common to two or more simulation types. Since these are common to several simulation types, we will review them all in one place (this page). These options include:
