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 […]
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 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.
Back in July, Erick Katzenstein presented at Diva Day, a daylighting simulation forum held at Thornton Tomasetti’s office in New York. The day hosted a wide range of great presentations from academics and professionals, all of which are now posted on Diva4Rhino’s website.
For the past month or so we’ve been working on designing and fabricating a small pavilion for the 2013 Seattle Design Festival. It’s been a fun opportunity to explore a […]
The Annual Seattle Architecture Foundation Model Exhibit opens this week and our sectional model and mockup for the University of Iowa School of Music Suspended Theatroacoustic System will be on display. Opening […]
This post serves as a critique for existing modeling methods. We’re interested in a method which combines the Gumball with The O-Snap for early massing designs. The Box Snap enables the user to create models quickly and run simulations from within the Grasshopper canvas.
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 […]
