The Proving Ground by Nathan Miller. Alvaro Soto Portfolio. Truecartier is an ongoing jewelry project that explores form and luxury.

By using audio data recorded at luxurious jewelry stores in NYC, with the use of generative algorithms and parametric design, the rings in the collection take forms that are unique to its environment. Luxury can be a very loose term, but culture and media have created archetypes that tie the word to brands, life style and money. With the easy access to social media and globalism that small designers have today, it’s possible to think that luxury can be redefined. With this in mind, The Truecartier Collection seeks to provoke conversations about the nature of luxury, what means to have a retail store in 5th Avenue in New York City, by asking the following question: What will a ring from Cartier look like if the sounds from its own 5th Avenue luxury store took the form of a ring?

Would it be unexpected? Software used: Rhinoceros, Paneling Tools, and Rhino Python. Blime is a DIY parametric, modular light fixture. 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).

Decoding Spaces Components for Grasshopper (Rhino)

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. Donath). Segment Analysis: The Graph-Components allow to generate graphs from line-drawings and analyse these graphs according to familiar graph-measures. Isovist Analysis: The Isovist component allows to generate isovists-polygons from given vantage points.

Isovist Fields (GPU-accelerated): The IsovistField-Component calculates Isovist-Measures (Area, Perimeter, Compactness, Occlusivity, MinRadial, MaxRadial) for a given set of points. Visibility Graph Analysis: The Visibility Graph Component generates a bidirectional graph based on a set of points and obstacle lines. Sam Bernaerdt - Portfolio.

THE PROVING GROUND. 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.

Enough with the fools... let's look at some tools!

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. We build internal tools to help us deliver better services, we build custom apps that meet a client's specific needs, and we build purpose-built workflows for projects. Our growing stockpile of custom digital ammunition has helped us to be agile in our approach and deliver better service to our AECO clients. On the boards...
