Almost a year ago Harry Mattison from over at Boost Your BIM had a couple of posts that he used as an introduction to Events in the Revit API, particularly printing […]
Scott Crawford will be presenting as part of the Design Computation Symposium at the Autodesk University Conference on Wednesday 12/4. The talk will focus on the various ways that computational […]
Here’s a demonstration for creating quick diagrammatic animations for programming masses. Rather than creating path curves for all of these boxes, Grasshopper is used to array the masses based on a given sorting parameter (volume, height, type, final mass). Once these fixed states are defined, the Transformer component takes care of the animations between.
We strive to be a platform agnostic firm, making sure we take advantage of whatever tool seems to fit the job best. Even so, our two most common tools are […]
The 2013 Seattle AIA Honor Awards took place on November 4th and the Octahedron made another appearance, this time in the lobby of Benaroya Hall. The outer surface of the […]
Erick Katzenstein and Tim Logan will be presenting at the Dassault Systèmes 3DExperience Customer Forum in Las Vegas on November 12-13. The presentation will cover their research on interoperability between […]
Stephen Van Dyck and Jack Chaffin of LMN Architects will be presenting at the AIA Northwest and Pacific Region Conference (aka AIBC Annual Conference) on Friday 10/25 in LMN’s Vancouver Convention Centre. Their presentation will focus on the importance of R&D within today’s architectural practice.
Scott Crawford will be presenting at the AIA FOREFRONT Conference on Thursday 10/24. The talk will focus on LMNts explorations into using design technology to further collaborative efforts.
We created a user object to assist in animating complex transformations in Grasshopper.
We enjoy sharing the research and ideas we’re exploring on this blog, but we’ve been trying to find other opportunities to share the things we’re interested in, especially with people who are not necessarily computational designers. Early in the summer, we approached the committee in charge of the Seattle Design Festival and asked if we could contribute something to the September event, though at the time we weren’t quite sure what that something was. After a few months of brainstorming, painting, cutting, and hammering we were able to successfully install our Octahedron Pavilion in Pioneer Square for the weekend. It was a great event and the weather cooperated for the most part.
