    Mahsa VANAKI: This installation was an experimental project to experience the traits of complex, parametrically developed forms, in a physical and tactile model. To feel the physical equivalence of control points and Iso-curves, as they become joints and structural elements in a real model. This project was also an attempt to explore the relationship between the material quality and the digital curvilinear form in the computer model and the dialog between them, which leads to the possibility of the translation.

  • Fallen Star @ AA DLAB
    london UNITED KINGDOM

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Architectural Association (AA) DLAB Visiting School: “Fallen Star” is an installation set between biomimetics, interaction, and perception. It is the final working prototype of the Architectural Association (AA) DLAB Visiting School, which took place in AA London and AA Hooke Park during 23 July–05 August 2012. AA DLAB 2012, “Green,” explored the concepts of regeneration, emergence, and growth through their broad existence in natural and biological structures of differing scales, followed by their abstraction and interpretation into elaborated design proposals. The computational toolset of the workshop has been Processing, Grasshopper, and iPad or iPhone.

  • Plethora-Project
    london UNITED KINGDOM

    Plethora-Project.com is an initiative to accelerate computational literacy in the frame of architecture and design. It aligns with the “show me your screens” motto of the TopLap live-coding group attempting to get rid of Obscurantism in digital design.

    Directed by Jose Sanchez.

    yuichiro ITAYAMA: As Fuller, Ito, and Aranda/Lasch did, I started by creating honeycomb geometry. Developing the geometry through the software Rhino and Grasshopper. I began with not to just make regular honeycomb, but to create a random hexagon field that would grow in specific directions. Then, I began to develop the honeycomb pattern as a 3D model using a Grasshopper plug-in called GeometryGym. I started with two simple lines and by dividing those lines I could connect separate curves to the original lines. I then used GeometryGym to fill in the space with polyhedrons.

    bolojan DANIEL: “an elegant building should entail an elegant structure and both together should be able to spatialize considerable organizational complexity without descending into visual disorder. like in natural systems, all forms are the result of lawfully interacting forces.” – patrik schumacher – engineering elegance

    the first example is more about curvilinear tubes which function as a branching network, the number and the position of a branch in the hierarchy of branches from the outermost twig to the trunk, and the length of each branch, have a logarithmic relation.
