This post highlights our evolving efforts to use Processing for viewing images and performance metrics of a large number of iterations generated in Grasshopper.
We’ve started exploring ways of casting some of the pieces that we previously showed in the post on Acoustic Reflection Patterns and thought we’d share what’s been done so far. The diffusive …
We learned today that we won three awards in the 2013 A+ Architizer Awards; a Jury Award for Modeling, and the Popular Choice Awards for Modeling and Fabrication.
The mockup for the Lobby Feature Wall of the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts is under construction. This post shares some images and a bit about the process that got us to this point.
Space frames are an amazing type of structural system, but they’re often composed of hundreds or thousands of parts. We’re exploring a version of a space frame structure that has a drastically reduced number of pieces that are constructed with a minimal amount of material waste. The hope is that we can find more use for space frames besides long span structures.
One of our projects is a finalist in the 2013 Architizer A+ Awards categories of Architecture+Fabrication, Architecture+Modeling, and Architecture+Sound. Vote Now.
In the post, Acoustic Reflection Patterns, we described an approach to reflecting a set of rays off of surfaces to see how the pattern of rays diffusive. We’ve also explored how …
Recently, we’ve been having discussions about the effort that goes into making the formwork for casting an object and how wasteful that mold making process can be depending on the amount of shaping that is desired. This is one in a series of posts where we’ll be looking at how an early focus on the fabrication process can influence the design of a object or system and the potentials that might arise from this approach to design.
It’s been over a year since we last posted about the Cleveland Medical Mart, but a lot has happened since then. In the summer of 2011, we had the opportunity to travel to the Construction Research Laboratory in Miami, FL to witness the performance testing of a mockup of a corner of the Medical Mart. This past May we traveled to Cleveland to see the building coming together. This post shares some photos and videos of where the building is at this point.
We’ve enjoyed taking a look at the new version of VRay for Rhino and are especially excited about the addition of VRay proxies. In short, a proxy is a crude representation of a complex mesh geometry within modeling space. It’s linked to this mesh geometry, which is imported only at render time. This results in a significantly improved user experience as well as increased speed and complexity of renderings.
