In this global emergency time, many designer-makers are working hard to help the community. What has emerged is that everyone must do their own part. At this stage, valve prototypes (for compassionate care) and the design of the protective mask templates and related workflow for prototyping are being tested from home and in the Fablab. […]
A simple algorithm to track the virus situation in Italy (a Grasshopper user PoV). The algorithm shows the data collected by the Protezione Civile and stored at the following link: https://github.com/pcm-dpc/COVID-19 In any case, I invite anyone interested to consult the official sources (HERE) to avoid inaccuracies. Below the graphs in real-time of the […]
These days I’m really regretting the good old flux.io and I really hope that soon returns in other guises. However, I have systematized a simple workflow that allows me to perform some practical interoperability operations (not live connections) between Revit+Dynamo and Rhino+Grasshopper. On the one hand for research purposes, on the other for personal curiosity, […]
In this short article, I would like to share with the Linkedin community part of the methodology that I experimented to solve some critical issues regarding the realization of the pilot LAB of the Apple iOS Developer Academy of Naples (University of Naples “Federico II”). Cultural background Today we live a Digital Age in […]
How to design a tree box filter, a grid to preserve an urban tree
A parametric “trick” to generate infinite kind of Halloween Pumpkins – “treat”? leave a like! thanks – A Scary Halloween to All!
Scripting as creative expression of the Design. Workflow developed to generate the Apple iOS Developer Academy “Wordcloud” (window-frame of the Main Classroom). The need to create an ad hoc script arose from the need to adapt
Development of a dashboard to visualize the user’s appreciation in relation to the feedback collected through a data mining process. Data visualization is one of the most requested skills in the field of computational design, it is the best way to effectively communicate the project results.
Development of a single interface for displaying metadesign suggestions guides simultaneously to the visual outputs of user feedback. A result that sets the basis for a post-employment analysis to be explored in a specific research.
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.
The spread of digital technologies, aimed at improving the effectiveness of the technological and environmental project proposals, has transformed the modus operandi of architects and designers who approach environmental impact assessment, especially about public space designs.
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.
