Intensive and Extensive differences - Christina Doumpioti

Intensive and Extensive differences - Christina Doumpioti | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it

In their book ‘Atlas of Novel Tectonics’ the architects Reiser and Umemoto, point out the necessity of a new perception of a matter and energy relationship, one where the architecture plays a significant role in becoming the mediator between the environment and material expression. They argue for an architecture that is not literally animate, but an architecture that ‘its substance, its scale, its transitions and measurement will be marked by the dilations and contractions of the energy field.’ The primacy of architecture consequently becomes not the ‘myth and interpretation’ but the ‘material and formal specificity’.

hybridbiostructures: Design Development/ Analysis of Emergent Form | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it

A series of digital models were generated to be tested for quantities to be used as input parameters. The condition of the interior space in terms of lighting and thermal comfort was of primal concern during this phase of the design. These conditions can be controlled in the interior through the generated skin.

3ders.org - Absolutely stunning cocoon lamp created with multi-material 3D printer | 3D Printing news | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it
This stunning Cocoon Lamp is inspired by Neri Oxman's "the beast", cocoon is also from the nature - a cocoon is a shell which protects the insect for their metamorphosis. It is created by Patric Günther at the Voxel Studio and 3d printed by Objet Technologies.

With the polyjet technologies from Objet Connex multi-material 3D printer, it is possible to print the Cocoon Lamp with more than just one material.

Using Trahan’s 3-D documents, Case developed a set of customized automation procedures to create a final 3-D model with all of the stone panels, each with its own geometry. “If there’s not repetition with the panel typology, there can be repetition with the process of creating the files themselves and not necessarily the geometry,” said Case partner Ruben Suare.

Beauty - Edward Harran

Beauty - Edward Harran | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it

Beauty is a dynamic event that occurs between you and something else. It can spontaneously arise at any moment given the right circumstances, point of view and context. Beauty is thus an altered state of consciousness, an extraordinary moment of poetry and grace. It can be a rousing symphonic climax, or just the way the light catches the edge of a rusty old trash can. To seek beauty is to have the willingness, the inclination and the impetuous desire for this chance encounter to transpire. If you look at history, great art expands the way we see; uplifting the human spirit from the barbaic and thrusting it towards the numinous"

Daniel Cardoso > Projects > Melnikov > Melnikov Grammar Press Fit Kit | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it

The series of new algorithmic 3-D models and physical prototypes introduced here originates in my observation of the intriguing dynamism of Konstantin Melnikov’s architecture, and of the computational nature of his design process. It builds on previous work on the definition of a “Melnikov Grammar” [3] that appropriated Melnikov’s design principles and formalized them in a set of two-dimensional rules (Melnikov’s principles operated always in two dimensions). I developed some early prototypes for the How to Make Almost Anything class at MIT.

Aggregated Porosity Canopy: Digital Architecture Laboratory

Aggregated Porosity Canopy: Digital Architecture Laboratory | [THE COOL STUFF] | Scoop.it

The canopy is supported by six L-shaped steel sections anchored to a wall. To these are attached set of six curving, laser-cut plywood ribs, which are cross-braced by additional ribs running parallel to the ground. Tensile steel mesh is fastened to this underlying grid, providing netting to which the hexagonal plywood panels could be attached. Made with off-the-shelf hardware pieces assembled into a customized circular joint, the fasteners allow each hexagon to be tuned by hand, ensuring panels are precisely positioned on the x, y, and, z axe

Text Latest Grasshopper tooling experiment for data visualization. The script streams two sets of values (or more if desired) from an Excel spreadsheet via gHowl and maps data normalized on a two-dimensional piechart. First column values are distributed normalized along the inner chart to show ratios of the set. Additionally, the outer extrusion maps the second column normalized to a malleable minimum and maximum offset. Grab the GH definition and Excel sample file here and feel free to give me feedback in comments.
