Relational Geometries Each unique instance of the will be installed as an aggregation of raw, unsealed ceramic tiles. The climate, surface orientation, and potential shading by other structures will affect the ultimate growth and eventual disintegration of the wall. When installed in a shaded, colder environment, vegetation growth will spread slowly. ALEX HOFREFE-RHINO DEFINITIONS 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.

The wall’s gentle undulations evoke the region’s rolling hills while also making resonating with waves and wind.

Grasshopper « Attitude Geometries Cellular Automata Building Propotional studies of a building facade. These videos shows an animation how to use the generative design methods in architecture and design. Relational Geometries 2009 This techniques seminar introduces students to the next generation of computer aided design tools that facilitate movement between digital modeling and material prototyping. Working from the idea of parametric design, the seminar methodically moves through a project exploring NURBS modeling, parametric modeling, rapid prototyping, mold making and material prototyping. The software environments that the seminar will introduce are Rhinoceros 4.0 and Grasshopper 0.5, while the rapid prototyping tools include the Universal Laser Cutter and the Dimension 3d Printer. We will begin by exploring the possibilities offered by NURBS modeling through Rhinoceros 4.0. Within this environment we will look at designing surface models whose geometry is derived from natural artifacts. These will be further studied through parametric variation in Grasshopper, which will become the basis for material explorations through the laser cutter, 3D printer and material casts.

Grasshopper This definition divides a given surface and flattens each quad section to be unrolled to a grid on the xy plane. Once unrolled each face is then flattened and given tabs for reconstruction. Labels are provided. THIS IS CURRENTLY A BETA VERSION AND IS NOT FULLY DEVELOPED, CHECK BACK FOR [...]

AKT (Sawako & Panagiotis) « Scriptedbypurpose Sawako and Panagiotis at AKT Currently they are working as computational design researchers in Adams Kara Taylor based in London. They have worked on projects by well known architectural practices in the United Kingdom including Zaha Hadid Architects, Future Systems, and Foreign Office Architects in the development of architectural design involving complicated geometries. Our research aims in developing design solutions that respect criteria of structural efficiency and architectural intentions by interrogating the intrinsic properties of forms and their embedding space.

Inti is the Sun and controls all that implies: warmth, light and sunshine. Fishtnk Design Factory [archive/blog] In collaboration with: Dan Hambleton, MESH consultants. The study has been on going collaborative project which has resulted in a unique approach on structural optimization and material performance analysis furniture and product design for. With the increase of analytic + parametric software presence in design processes, the ideas of mass-customization in large scale production becomes more approachable than ever. The Vessel Chair by fishtnk became a case study for this research. The outcome is developed as a malleable algorithm to be applied to different disciplines for material and structural optimization on the principals of mass-customiza

Achim Menges Design Research Architecture Product Design In 2010, the Institute for Computational Design (ICD) and the Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) designed and constructed a temporary research pavilion. The innovative structure demonstrates the latest developments in material-oriented computational design, simulation, and production processes in architecture. The result is a bending-active structure made entirely of extremely thin, elastically-bent plywood strips. Material computes.
