This research describes the author’s experience in the design of the collaborative spaces of the Apple iOS Developer Academy (Naples). The intent is to explore the new frontiers of BIM using algorithmic tools to manage the formal and informative features of the project.
Procedure to make chairs positioning easy (and the scheme printing too).
main problem was preserving chairs orientation, to reach that condition I had to provide the exact position of the anchor points (4 pts for each chair – 200 chairs). At the end, by a very simple “hack”, I optimized the printing procedure splitting the draws printing layouts with ref. (plotter A0 roll – A0 max dimension fixed).
Positioning of Main Classroom chairs by a cross-platform algorithms (Grasshopper+Dynamo by flux.io. Designer needs just drawing a line to position and to orient all MC chairs.
Modelling a façade adaptive component by Grasshopper+Dynamo algorithms. Use of the two most popular visual scripting platforms in BIM and free form modelling.
Algorithms Aided design approach. Extracting garden contours by Grasshopper definition (by Kangaroo plugin), then importing polylines as DWG format into Revit model of polo Scientifico “Federico II” – San Giovanni a Teduccio (Apple iOS Developer Academy).
Model shared between designer (thesis’ author) and manufacturing company. By web application, Modelo, it’s easier than in the past sharing data model (and exploring it
