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.

CETI: Futurotextiles Awards 2012 Competition call! CETI (European Centre for Innovative Textiles) is launching the FUTUROTEXTILES AWARDS, the First International Competition dedicated to Innovative Textiles and Design.A research centre of international calibre and industrial excellence in the fi eld of Advanced Textile Materials and New Flexible Materials, CETI is dedicated to innovation, prototyping and technological development. CETI is the fl agship project of the UP-tex competitiveness cluster, the objective of which is to promote the emergence of textiles in all industries looking for new levels of performance. Spearheading the urban redevelopment of the Union (Lille Metropolis – France), CETI is being developed as a result of fi nancial support from Europe, the State, local authorities and Lille Metropole Communauté Urbaine, and shall be opened on 10 October 2012. The prizes shall be awarded on CETI's opening night, on wednesday 10th October 2012

Lehrstuhl für Industrial Design: Lehrstuhl Terreform ONE (Open Network Ecology) ILEK / adaptabilidad Förderstelle: Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft Partnerinstitute: IKTD, ITV, IFB, IFT, ILEK, IFU, ISYS der Universität StuttgartLaufzeit: 3 Jahre Kurzbeschreibung des GesamtprojektsDie Forschergruppe HIKE setzt sich aus sieben verschiedenen Instituten aus den Fachbereichen Bauingenieurwesen, Luft- und Raumfahrtechnik, Konstruktions-, Produktions-, Fahrzeug- bzw. Textil- und Verfahrenstechnik zusammen. Ziel ist es, innerhalb eines interdisziplinären Rahmens neuartige Konstruktionselemente zu entwickeln, die funktionale, wirtschaftliche und innovative Anforderungen erfüllen und sich durch eine erhöhte Funktionalität deutlich von den klassischen Konstruktionselementen abheben. Teilprojekt - Adaptives SchalentragwerkDas Teilprojekt des ILEK "Adaptive Schalentragwerke - Auslegung, Umsetzung und Bewertung" baut im Rahmen der am Institut laufenden Forschungsarbeiten im Bereich der adaptiven Systeme direkt auf sehr erfolgsversprechende Ergebnisse im Bereich der adaptiven Tragwerke auf.

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. A cellular grid was used to generate a frame for pathways to have a more even floor to walk on. This time, the modeling was done to scale. Points were restricted at the pathway edges to create ramps on the raised platform. We deployed the same logic with the analogue prototype. about « Digital Crafting The research events examine the relationship between the encoded and the crafted. The events are organised in respect to three core trajectories examined through the focus on process, technique and theory. The three trajectories: Trajectory I: the ideal of the optimal, Trajectory II: the ideal of the tectonic and Trajectory III: the ideal of the formal present three optics by which digital practice in architecture is understood. By building a critical understanding of these our aim to build a platform from which the relationships, the connections and conflicts, between the particular optics can be understood and discussed. The three trajectories are established in the Network’s 5 workshop-seminar events. The relationships are discussed and framed in the Network’s 2 symposia inviting international researchers and practitioners to a broader field of research findings. Events Organisation The aim is to allow the emergence of a general 3 phases: Participation Event Structure

STUDIOSEED | Experimental Studio: Energy, Design, Architecture & Programming labs livingarch Political and cultural conditions change: what if the walls and windows morphed in response? Air and water quality fluctuate: what if a cloud of light above the river modulated its color as a public display of contamination? Demands for occupation of space shift across days, seasons, and years: what if traditionally mute and inert building materials appeared and disappeared accordingly? A dynamic world calls for responsiveness. Responsiveness in architecture calls for new systems. New and untested systems call for full-scale prototyping. The Living Architecture Lab experiments with new systems and adaptive technologies through open source, collaborative, hands-on design. Each of the Lab's projects involves components for input, processing, and output. Yet each project is a beginning rather than an end. On a larger scale, the projects are designed as swappable modules in new and existing buildings. Precedent projects include:

SMD Arquitectes C-Lab Columbia Laboratory for Architectural Broadcasting C-Lab, the Columbia Laboratory for Architectural Broadcasting, is an experimental research unit devoted to the development of new forms of communication in architecture, set up as a semi-autonomous think and action tank at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University. Founded in 2005, C-Lab collaborates with Archis and AMO on Volume, an independent quarterly for architecture to go beyond itself.
