The main challenge of this interesting project born from the collaboration of the Miralles Tagliabue and the i-Mesh studio was to create a structural module, based on the concept provided by the international architecture studio, capable of being covered with hi-tech made fabric. by Alberto Fiorenzi. The project concerned the development of a part of […]
One of the most stimulating challenges for a computational designer is undoubted, in my opinion, finding solutions to problems. It is certainly of vital importance to first define the problem (problem making) and then, thanks to the inspiration and investigative sensitivity, implement strategies and techniques more suitable to solve the problem (problem-solving). If you want […]
Below is the description of the main i-Mesh project within I have been involved. I would like to share with you a sneak-peek of the research and i-Mesh internal improvements that I have contributed as a Computational Designer and, simply, as an Architect who lives in the Digital Era and believe in the computational thinking […]
Thanks to SITdA (Italian Society of Architecture Technology) and Maggioli Editore for this opportunity. more info go to my page on Researchgate–> https://bit.ly/AppleAcademy-LA_SITdA Apple Developer Academy Computational Design for the digital genesis of Smart Environments The design paradigm-shift towards a procedural status is the result of design, becoming structurally defined by the dynamic […]
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 […]
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.
Modelling a façade adaptive component by Grasshopper+Dynamo algorithms. Use of the two most popular visual scripting platforms in BIM and free form modelling.
