Vanishing Point employs perspective as both tool and visual outcome to reshape, redefine and represent a space. Inspired by sketches of Leon Battista Alberti, Leonardo DaVinci and Albrecht Dürer, UVA sends lines into space from an arbitrary vanishing point, creating different volumes. The Aether Project is designed to test the interaction between humans x robots, robot x robot, and the resulting recursive relationship between technology and human perception continuously. The 3D Print Canal House is an exhibition, research- and building site for 3D Printing Architecture. A unique project where an international team of partners collaborates in ‘research & doing’ linking science, design, construction and community, by 3D printing a canal house at an expo-site in the very heart of Amsterdam. Hakanaï is a solo choreographic performance that unfolds through a series of images in motion.

Blog I am excited to be teaching a one-day Interactive Surfaces workshop for the upcoming Facades+ Conference being held in New York City on April 11th-12th. The event has an amazing line up of speakers and workshops which are being taught by some of the industries leaders including: Robert Aish (Autodesk), Nathan Miller (Case), Gil Akos & Ronnie Parsons (Studio Mode), Neil Meredith (Gehry Tech), and John Sargent (SOM). The Interactive Surfaces workshop will concentrate on producing facade prototypes that are configurable, sensate, and active.

ORI-REVO: A Design Tool for 3D Origami of Revolution 2011 Jun Mitani, Univ. of Tsukuba The latest version is Ver.1.0.1. Contents (目次) Rhino ++ Grasshopper – Plethora Project Plethora-Project.com 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. Directed by Jose Sanchez Contact me at : jomasan@gmail.com My Contributions Some of the pages here are things I've thought about myself, and others are my expositions of the ideas of others. Some of them are pages on my own site, and others are pages on other sites describing my work. I'll leave as an open problem determining which is which. Acute square triangulation. Can one partition the square into triangles with all angles acute?

Interlocking Structure in Grasshopper (No Boolean) It has been a tough problem for me, for last two days. Parametric model of an interlocking structure (sometimes also called egg-crate, waffle or contouring structure) can be created easily in Grasshopper using Contour component a couple of list management operations, and a boolean (or region) difference event. However Rhino and Grasshopper are very slow at calculating boolean differences on both solids and surfaces. Fabrication models of such structures don’t have to be solid models as they are at last downgraded into two dimensional rib sections with interlocking details. As the number of ribs (the number of interlocking events) increase, it becomes harder to maintain CPU regardless of how many cores within. So, i tried to create a fabrication model only “draws” the CNC curves (closed polylines) with interlocking details.

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 / crtl-i.com

Introduction to Arabesque In the book arts, Islimi is used to illuminate calligraphic headings and within shamsahs (little suns) which are palmettes that divide verses of text. Most famously it is interwoven with geometric patterns to create beautiful frontispieces (the first page of the Quran). Islimi is a key architectural feature, examples can be found in ornate ceramic, stone, plaster and wood carved friezes. Islimi designs are also found embellishing domestic objects such as utensils, cloths and carpets.

GRADIENT LOUVERS This definition uses points to group, orient, and colorize louvers 1. Define a profile curve2. Structural Tessellations and Morphologies The honeycomb is probably the epitome of structural efficiency. Bees have been creating hexagonal comb structures for millenia and humans inspired by the incredible structural strength to weight ratio of their combs have joined them. It is said that the first man-made honeycomb was made by Daedalus using gold by lost wax casting more than 3000 years ago.

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.
