Article (2015) in ITA and ENG versions taken from my doctoral thesis in which I invite the reader to reflect on some critical aspects of the profession of architect and designer and on some issues identified globally in terms of teaching new technologies (BIM and computational/parametric approaches). My poll here/il mio sondaggio qui […]
The present Research work aims to tackle in experimental and innovative terms (“flexible” approach) the technological design and the process design through the potentialities offered by the technological-informatics progress within the AEC Industry. This progress is strongly characterizing the profession of architect-designer and
PROXEMITY: “Make your world a better place” Purpose: enrich the BIM model with RTDM information Operational contribution: define a workflow / best practices to implement the data-informed depth level of the architecture model and open new opportunities for exploration, analysis and verification of the architectural project Futuristic didactic scenario: provide an instrumentation (HW / SW) to improve the exploration / design analysis of spaces called […]
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.
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).
Simple VR walking trough Apple iOS Developer Academy. The displayed model is conceptual-textures based. A slight better model is under construction.
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
