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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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
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.
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.
