Grasshopper: Parametric CurvesThis module covers the basic parametric properties of curves along with common grasshopper methods for evaluating and dividing curves. ARCH 598 Summer 2011information >> n-formations FABRICS // LATTICES // FIELDSThis course is designed to introduce and explore computational design, algorithmic thinking, and digital manufacturing–both: the larger ramifications that emerging digital technologies and ideas are having architectural theory via readings, discussions, presentations; and the practical application of these ideas and tools through a series of hands-on, iterative modeling and fabrication assignments.

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.

Fibre Composite Adaptive Systems Designed by Maria Mingallon, Sakthivel Ramaswamy, Konstantinos Karatzas Fibre composite adaptive systems is a research project which emulates self-organisation processes in nature by developing a fibre composite that can sense, actuate and hence efficiently adapt to changing environmental conditions. Fibre composites which are anisotropic and heterogeneous offer the possibility for local variations in their material properties. Embedded fibre optics would be used to sense multiple parameters and shape memory alloys integrated in a fibre composite material for actuation. scripting Archive for scripting Marc Fornes keynote speaker at Banff Session 2014 Marc Fornes will be keynote speaker for “Beyond Boundaries” at Banff Session 2014 (May 2-3, Canada) together with Kai-Uwe Bergmann from BIG, Andreas Gjertsen from TYIN (Trondheim, Norway), Sasa Radulovic & Johanna Hurme from 5468796 Architecture (Winnipeg, Canada) and Jared Della Valle from Alloy Development (Brooklyn, US) Out of Hand | Museum of Art and Design, NYC

Enough with the fools... let's look at some tools! While many of the tools from this month's CASE announcement showed a lot of promise it may be some time before we ever see renewed interest in t-squares and drafting tables. But April fools aside, certainly readers of this blog can all agree that information has been at the core of what we do for a very long time... the tools for leveraging it has just evolved into something far more sophisticated than a red pen (which is still pretty damn powerful!) At CASE, we have continued to build tools that are helping us seize new opportunities for leveraging building information.

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. Safavid Surfaces and Parametricism The development of specialized treatments of concrete and glass, customization through digital fabrication, and parametric design tools have brought about a contemporary resurgence of surface articulation, reopening the general issue of surface composition as a “legitimate” aspect of design, after almost a century of (near) omission by modernism. A wide variety of firms, among them Zaha Hadid (Patrik Schumacher), Herzog and de Meuron, Weil Arets, Aranda\Lasch and Foreign Office Architects, have been reintroducing this aspect of design -- most notably the last, which in addition to built work, Farshid Mousavi’s The Function of Ornament includes surface articulation as part of its theoretical explorations. The surface articulations to be discussed are: 1) the ceiling of the dome, and 2) the corner, where the square of the floor plan is reconciled with the circle of the base of the dome.

SIM_2011 by ESC-Studio [PROCESSING] SIM_2011 is a custom physics simulation software for tensile structures created by ESC-Stuido (Enrique Ramos, Silivia Polito yCiriaco Castro).This project sets out to generate and evolve different structural topologies within an environment in which physical laws are simulated, allowing for structural performance to be measured. Two distinct sets of structures have been studied: – Predefined topologies: Structures defined by pre-set topologies, using the physical simulation engine to reach the equilibrium state defining the final form of the structure. – Evolutionary Topologies: A genetic algorithm defines the parameters of a constrained spring system that generates populations of structures evolving towards an optimised solution. The implemented architecture of nodes and links with embedded metadata containing the physical properties of the elements permitted the measurement of the total weight of the structures, maximum deflections, horizontal displacements and number of elements.

Decoding Spaces Components for Grasshopper (Rhino) Decoding Spaces Components is a set of spatial analysis components for Grasshopper (a parametric modeling plugin for Rhino 3D). It provides a graph-analysis for segment maps and different visibility analysis methods (Isovists, Isovist Fields and Visibility Graphs). Team: Martin Bielik, Sven Schneider, Reinhard Königin cooperation with the chair Computer Science in Architecture (Prof. Dr.

design playgrounds Posts Tagged ‘Parametric Architecture’ We are happy and excited to announce that finally after a long time we have a launch day for ThinkParametric. Hy-FI is the winning proposal for this year MoMA´s PS1 competition, a tower-like topology volume composed by compostable bricks that use corn stalks and mushroom roots in their process of elaboration. In this tutorial you will learn how can you create shell-like surfaces made of planar hexagons using Kangaroo´s Planrization Forces. The Centenial Chromagraph is an installation/ data visualization portraying the history of the University of Minnesota School of Architecture.Their creators refer to it as an exercise in data spatialization where the use of computational tools were employed to generate formal and spatial constructions with large quantities of data.
