Eva Schindling | seeing the world in systems Refraction Reflection Refraction A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon – thus, a rainbow is not an object, and cannot be physically approached. Posted in Home, Research Tagged 2013, dispersion, Olafur Eliasson, physics, processingjs, rainbow, ray, water, wavelength Thought Experiments / February 2012 I failed again at thing-a-day, the February 2012 edition. My plan was to come up with a new thought experiment every day – Feb 1st to 29th – but that was obviously too big a challenge. ana + kata Ghostly architectural shapes from outer space.

Exuberance: New Virtuosity in Contemporary Architecture: Architectural Design (9780470717141): Marjan Colletti Scriptedbypurpose Tutorials Introduction to Grasshopper Videos by David Rutten. Wondering how to get started with Grasshopper? Look no further. Spend an some time with the creator of Grasshopper, David Rutten, to learn the fundamental of Grasshopper. No experience necessary. This 13 part series covers topics that will help you build a foundational understanding of Grasshopper. Dario Donato director di SpatialConnection(s), incubatore di ricerca per una creatività matematica, ha il piacere di annunciare il libro: Contaminazioni creative digitali – Trascrizioni di una complessità algoritmica attraverso Rhino.Grasshopper Transcripts of a complexity algorithmic through Rhino and Grasshopper. If you’re looking for a nice collection of Grasshopper tutorials then jump over to Designalyze Here are a series of beginner and advanced tutorials from our friends at Studio Mode... This tutorial series was developed for the Design Studio AIR at the University of Melbourne, Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning.

Ausgaben - View for printing Specification of Morphological Models with L-Systems and Relational Growth Grammars Author: Winfried Kurth [published in: Computational Visualistics and Picture Morphology (Themenheft zu IMAGE 5)] Catchwords: formal grammar, L-system, Lindenmayer system, graph grammar, relational growth grammar, fractal, syntax, morphology, virtual organisms, Artificial Life, pattern formation, recursion Disciplines: Computer science / Informatics, Bioinformatics, Virtual Reality Among the techniques for the creation of photorealistic virtual organisms, particularly plants, and in scientific models of vegetation structure, rule-based specifications (formal grammars) play a prominent role. 1. The programme for a computer-based simulation of a process is often specified by writing down the elementary steps of calculation in a prescribed order, which is to be applied when they are executed by the machine. 2. describes the structure in Figure 1.

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.

A Blog Exploring Digital Art Patrick Shumacher on Parametricism Patrik Schumacher is a partner at Zaha Hadid Architects. He is an accomplished architect and educator having influenced and entire generation of avant garde architectural practitioners. In 2008 he published the Parametric Manifesto, wherein he argued parametric architecture will have an equal affect on the future of design in the field comparable to modernism itself. From his lectures sprung his publication: Autopsies of Architecture. Some images of Patrik’s contributions to Zaha Hadid Architects: Co-de-iT | Computational Design Italy

Plethora Project maxscript Morphing, is the technique where a transition between two images is achieved seamlessly. The technique was (of course) developed initially for cinematographic purposes. As we read on, the first time it was used extensively was in the movie the willow, in 1988. One of the most impressive early movie examples was in Terminator 2: the judgment day. There the T-1000 cyborg terminator was equipped with the ability to morph into any kind of object (it was actually supposed to be made out of a morphing metal); the running time of the morphing scenes are counting up to 16mins (again according to The base concept behind 3D morphing however, while applied extensively in computer animation, is not that new. When coming to initial contemporary practices in 'digital' architecture, morphing had a critical role. And this is the point where topology becomes a very useful concept in architecture today, and morphing a very useful tool that helps to study that concept.
