Myself I’m vivi. I’m doing the bachelor of environment. This is my third year. I’m not good well in software, so this subject is a big challenge to me. My previous digital architecture and parametric design is Virtual Environment in semester 1 of 2011. in that subject, we create a portable lantern which we can carry by our body. We used paneling tools to create a lantern with different panels in that subject. But I never use Grasshopper before.


Last week, I started to know grasshopper after the speech given by our tutor, Zak and Michael. I realized Grasshopper is a very interesting design tool. It help us create a structure comprised thousands of different ribs and surfaces. when we create model in Rhino , such as drawing curves, we need to controlit by its point, mobile, array of objects. We have to repead the commond to change the distance and direction of the work.However, in Grasshopper,twe just need to input data and the program automatically calculates to complete its value. It is a complete recording which edits model in their own unique way and process. To achieve the effect of the final form,we can simply edit it by changing the starting model or the relevant variables.


Arcgitecture as a discourse

Architecture as a public art, it allows everyone participate and use it. It exits in our daily life. According to Richard Williams, architecture needs to be considered as a set of special material products, social practices rather more as art. Architecture is a expression of art, social, cultural discipline material form. In this way, architecture conveyed an idea and thinking . Thus, architecture needs to be analyzed as a discourse.

Blob Architecture Clad In Thousands Of Anodized Aluminum Triangles Project: t Location: Montepellier, France Architects: Studio Fuksas Completion: 2012NON-ALPOLIC


This building is wrapped in an elaborate arrangement of thousands of anodized aluminum triangles windows that allow natural light to penetrate the building’s interior. the Lycée Georges Frêche is the recently completed masterpiece of Italian architects Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas. The school for hotel management located in Montepellier. A portion of the façade is tucked within itself to create an arch and exclusive entrance. The affixed structures resemble blobism, or the movement in which buildings feature rounded edges and an amoeba-like orientation.
