Computational Design
The 2D Minimum BoundingBox in 3D Space

Trying to keep fit is always a good idea! I found this interesting challenge made by Ryan Hughes (here)   Looking for a computational design challenge? I’ve just mocked up a quick test for some of the applicants to our internship program, which we are still accepting applications for (link below). The challenge is to […]

Weaving of trumpets – Python + Rhinoscript

Sketching by Rhino ( Python + Rhinoscript). the Weaving of Trumpets     The principle behind the script The script creates a three-dimensional matrix of points distributed in geometric space. For each elementary cubic module, find the centroid and subsequently for each face of the cube a 4×4 matrix of points lying on each face. […]

i-Mesh R&D
Structural Design optimisation – the Making of joints

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 […]

i-Mesh – Structural Design | Sample breaking-strength by directions

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 […]

Thanks to SITdA (Italian Society of Architecture Technology) and Maggioli Editore for this opportunity. more info go to my page on Researchgate–>     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 […]

Grasshopper tutorial
Easy image sampler: customize the thesis cover at your risk!

When I printed my PhD thesis (paper copy), I had the idea of ​​bringing, even on the cover, the spirit and the scientific message with which I argued my research. Computational design (parametric approach) applied to the field of architecture and design. The algorithm is very simple and allows you to parametrically manipulate your own […]
