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.
Rhino ++ Grasshopper – Plethora Project Plethora-Project.com is an initiative to accelerate computational literacy in the frame of architecture and design. It aligns with the "show me your screens" motto of the TopLap live-coding group attempting to get rid of Obscurantism in digital design. Directed by Jose Sanchez Contact me at : email@example.com Bio: Jose Sanchez is an Architect / Programmer / Game Designer based in Los Angeles, California. Centre for Environmental Acoustics (Research) - Dept. Engineering Systems IntroductionThe Acoustics Group has a 30 year track record of acoustics research and has developed an international reputation for its research. In the Research Assessment Exercise 2008 under General Engineering the Acoustics Group was part of a submission rated as having 60% of the research rated world leading (4*) or of international excellence (3*). This is equivalent to a 5* rating under the terms of the 2001 RAE.
Nervous System – explorations in generative design and natural phenomena Have you ever done a puzzle that has no beginning or end? Where you don’t know up from down? Get lost in the infinite galaxy puzzle. The infinity puzzles are […] Read Article → 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. Option Explicit ‘Script written by Howard Jiho Kim / crtl-i.com Call Main()

In the area of building, that includes fences, gates, trellises, and every part of a structure. Bamboo tools, utensils, and buildings are an important part of life for half the world's population. In temperate climates around the world, bamboo supply can be maintained indefinitely while maintaining erosion control, watershed integrity, soil health.

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.
Moullinex - Catalina [Processing, Kinect] - Music video created using Kinect + Processing + Cinema 4D + After Effects Music video for Catalina, a track off the Chocolat EP by Moullinex, released in January on Gomma Records created using Kinect + Processing + Cinema 4D + After Effects. We started with the Kinect interface library developed for Processing and made available by Daniel Shiffman. Some modifications were introduced, to get our 3D data into Cinema 4D. Each file represents one frame with a coordinate map (point index, x, y, z lines) in plaintext. January 2007 "LE CHAMP" is a study for a small gallery for architecture in NYC; within the host of that SOM project with a very low budget and a tight scheddule, marc fornes & theverymany is investigating the notion of field and distributed design. from "animate" rules, to shift in morphology, to mutate... back for the purpose of the exercice (lacking of US army budget and time frame developpment) to "animate" as a possible result of differnet forecast, the flow -within "LE CHAMP"- has been the most litterally expressed via a field vectors, actual device support for presentation panels which should be simply laser-cut onto a full spectrum of colored acrylic panels. project protocol written in rhinoscript (rhino v4.0) VECTOR FIELD (Wikipedia.org)In mathematics a VECTOR FIELD is a construction in vector calculus which associates a vector to every point in a Euclidean space. FIELD LINE (Wikipedia.org)A FIELD LINE is a locus that is defined by a vector field and a starting location within the field.
GRASSHOPPER TUTORIALS + EXERCISES The exercises below test basic competence using Grasshopper. Attempt to complete the exercises and if you need extra help refer to the tutorial PDFs. This tutorial introduces students to the workflow of Grasshopper by creating a simple definition that takes a reference direction from input curves and re-orients them to face an attractor point. This tutorial extends upon tutorial 01 by creating a simple definition that analyses the curvature of a doubly curved surface and indicates how this could be further extended to manipulate material qualities to achieve complex double curvature from perforations in a flat sheet. Information regarding the further extension of this definition is provided at the end of the tutorial. This tutorial will panel a surface with a specified grid of polylines using triangular, rectangular, hexagonal and radial grids.
Kinect - OpenSource [News] - amazing work created within a few days.. #of There have been a number of exciting developments in the last few days related to XBox Kinect. For those that may not be aware of what it is, it’s a brand new interface to their Microsoft XBox games console. Kinect brings games without using a controller.
