Parametricism - A New Global Style for Architecture and Urban Design

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. There is a global convergence in recent avant-garde architecture that justifies the enunciation of a new style: Parametricism.

flower_Window Pattern(rhinoScript + grasshopper + weaverbird + pointReconstruction) 很簡單的運用三種基本的Rhino外掛加上RhinoScript Grasshopper, WeaverBird, pointReconstruction 所形成的變化形牆壁 有點像中國的花窗形式 Simply using the three basic Rhino Plug-in Grasshopper, WeaverBird, pointReconstruction, and RhinoScript to create the pattern wall which is familiar with traditional Chinese windows. 首先 先使用RhinoScript在平面上產生亂數的點 生成2D的Voronoi線段 將這些線段利用"surface from planar curve"的指令 產生面之後 再透過Mesh from Surface/Polygon的指令 將Surface變成Mesh 最後再送到grasshopper裡面 進行WeaverBird的處理部分 First, using the rhinoScript to populate random points on plan. to get the outlines. Third, we use these outlines to make the surface with "surface from planar curve" and transfer them into mesh by "Mesh from Surface/Polygon." After All, we send these meshes to the grasshopper and use the weaver bird to get the pattern. 先試著用長形的來操作 調整第一個D前面的Slider可以調整開口大小 Changing the slider of the first "D", we can control the size of the opening Render 再來試著在同一塊平面Voronoi上 將其分割並給訂不同開口大小 亦會產生有趣的紋理 Then we try to divide the Voronoi into separate parts to create interesting Pattern.

FabbingCC Intervenciones Colaborativas » Blog Archive » [2011.04.05] avances diseño La Mejostilla Tras las conclusiones del taller.01 se han realizado varias pruebas de diseño intentando responder a las necesidades y deseos de los agentes implicados. En una primera fase se ha optado por realizar varias pruebas que Jaime Diez mostrará hoy en su reunión y que posteriormente iremos implementando/adaptando a las conclusiones que allí se determinen. 01_Estructura/Árbol artificial. La estructura arbol se genera a partir de una malla de hexagonos construida a partir de piezas planas. Esta estructura puede servir como estructura de sombra. [*] Este diseño está basado en el proyecto cardboard tower and bridge de Julius Seidl-Brodmann estudiante Erasmus procedente de Innsbruck del curso de Composición Arquitectónica en la Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Sevilla. Prototipo a escala de la estructura, impreso en 3D con la impresora 3D Alaris del Fablab de la Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de la Universidad de Sevilla Ideas para su desarrollo: 02_Costa Mejostilla.

Vert Tag Vert Tag is also known as PinBox. It can be used to create a wide variety of things such as the PinBox toys that many people are familiar with. Those toys would allow the user to place there handle over a bed of dull pins and leave an impression of their hand. Vert Tag 1.0 - Compatible with Editable Meshes - Custom Pin Object - Custom Surface Object - Animate-able surface with objects remaining attached - Copy types (copy, instance, reference) Vert Tag 2.0 - Compatible with both Editable Poly and Editable Mesh - Options for distributing on polygon center or vertices - Display showing object count

Grasshopper Modules - Proxy Wiki From Phylogenesis, FOA 2003 The following Grasshopper modules were created in consultation with FOA's Phylogenesis, in particular the taxonomy of forms found at the conclusion of the book. Grasshopper is an exciting and evolving modeling platform - the following examples attempt to develop a range of geometric examples to explore its form-making potentials. Andrew Payne, a GSAPP alum, has created a comprehensive primer on Grasshopper that can be found here. Helpful Modules These modules are provided to supplement Grasshopper with a few simple features. Truss Module Grasshopper 3D Truss This module creates an offset truss from a given surface. Point Topology The simplest form of data to work with, points can be propagated into 3D space and can have geometry mapped to them. A Matrix is a 3-Dimensional point set, interpreted as a field of voxels. Download Rhino File Matrix.3dmDownload Grasshopper definition Example-Matrix.ghx A sparse matrix takes a matrix and set of points as inputs.

Pin Pres by OOO My Design Here's a similar storage system to the bicycle showroom we published this morning, this time for a kid's playroom. Created by OOO My Design, the rods of Pin Pres slide in and out so toys and books can put away simply by pushing them into the surface, but you might spend more time playing with it than tidying up. See the same system applied to retail design here and a wardrobe you throw things at here. Here are some more details from OOO My Design: Pin Pres is a kid’s room shelf that makes the act of sorting up the room a playful experience where the shelf adopts its form to the toys, books and other things that are being stored. Its the only shelf that will make your kid actually want to clean up and de-clutter the room! Pin Pres has won Josep Ros furniture design competition.

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. I used Grasshopper as a means to develop the seating testing clearances, site lines, and many other variables. This definition looks at taking any curved surface, and generating weaving geometry across it. The parametric skyscraper uses Grasshopper to generate the entire structure. My favorite definition to date, this definition generates box designs based on real boxes I crafted in the wood shop while in Grad school This definition extrudes geometry based on their proximity to a polyline attractor. Using a definition created by paramod, I wanted to see if I could edit the definition so that different panels could be combined to create a seamless surface This was one of the first definitions from scratch I ever created.

The hi-tech tabletop that creates a 3D version of YOU that moves in realtime | Daily Mail Online The inFORM 'state-of-the-art shape display' was created by Professor Hiroshi Ishii and his students at the MIT Media Lab The innovation uses sensors to read a person's hand movements and then replicated them using small moveable bars that make up the tabletopScientists believe the futuristic surface could be used to replicate objects remotely and even reproduce cities in miniature By Sarah Griffiths Published: 11:35 GMT, 7 November 2013 | Updated: 11:37 GMT, 7 November 2013 An incredible hi-tech tabletop enables individuals to reproduce virtual versions of their own hands and small objects. The inFORM table allows a person to wave their hands or move an object under some camera sensors so that their movements are replicated by small moveable bars placed in a grid formation that make up the tabletop. The invention, by a team of U.S. scientists, might remind some people of a hi-tech version of a pin art toy they played with as children. Scroll down for video

BCC Pin Art 3D | Boris FX Help Documentation Overview BCC Pin Art 3D is a particle based generator style filter. The name Pin Art is a reference to the desk toy where metal (or plastic) pins can be displaced by objects creating a 3D relief. Function Presets and Common Controls BCC filters come with a library of factory installed presets plus the ability to create your own custom presets and preview them with the BCC FX Browser™. BCC filters also include common controls that configure global effect preferences and other host-specific effect settings. For more information about working with presets and other common controls, Click Here. Note about presets: Most Pin Art 3D effects are dependent on an alternate layer being set as the Pin FX Layer in order to appear as designed. Render Group Includes parameters affecting the image quality of the effect and other global render related settings. Anti-Aliasing: None, Low, High ; sets the level of anti-aliasing applied to smooth edges. Opacity Boost: controls the opacity of the particles.
