Interesting initial meddling with parametric tools reveal quickly the vast potential to have create puzzles that generate a network of possible iterations. These iterations though seem aesthetically ingenious, requires much refinement before it could allude into the stage of being fabricatable or even inhabitable.
low laying pavilion
Dabbling with loft surfaces and projecting lines as well as piping infer a future within parametric tools to aid in the desig of a wide spanning installation within a landscape. This could be further refined by occupying and filling in the spaces within these pipe systems to perhaps create an interior space with sheltered canopies.
large children play object
Toughest of all part A algorithmic tasks, this play object reveal hints of potential pannelling establishment or creating a unique grid system that can have retrofitted energy systems.
By-products of following through Grasshopper online tutorials

Surface Frame distributions. Population of geometry on surface, exploring paneling options.
Contributing algorithm to the group decision making process. The use of field lines, not limited to spin and point forces, extending through additional plug-ins such as Flowl.
Subdividing surfaces into traingular planar surfaces motivated the integration of our electricity generating technology within our effecient wind harvesting geometry.
Another issue is at far ends, the panels seem overstretched and the ratios might be inappropriate for fabrication or integration of a piezoelectric system.
These iterations reveal the the adaptability of the code with multiple surface and varying densities.
It is henceforth decided to have a selection process where efficient positions are selected to have the energy generating system.
Concerns arise with doubly curved surfaces, especially at node points where several panels squeeze with one another.
An abandoned technique from the set of 50+ iterations, tessalation of diagrids. This computational method appears to be disjointed and proved to be heavy on memory, crashing the program numerous times.
Further development of panelling systems. Availing them to rotate and revolve parametrically, reflecting the realistic motion and effects of being responsive to wind.
field line form finding
more iterations and further mutation of the existing technique of field line form finding, with further inputs of more parameters, creating tension points and relaxed edges.
Just having fun attempting to contour a human as a scale to put into the final model. Discontinued due to the lack of time and its fairly obvious irrelevance.
Parametrically adjustable joints according to scale, material thickness and density of joints.
accomplishment having had designed a pure parametric design without referencing geometry or curves.
//A: thickness of layers //B: density of edges and its length //C: thickness of casement and material //D: diameter of generator and opening
This design has been discontinued due to the lacking of function and capability to fabricate. It has served its purpose to be merely representational and act as a casement for connecting pins and mini DC converters within the overall machine structure. This
Yet another parametric breakthrough with the extrapolation of a single line into a volumetric object, representing a Real life RHS with interlocking finger joints that is idealised from having a modular system with is independently inherent in structure.
This has been part of the initial 1:20 prototype but were not installed due to the wrong selection of material and false positioning within the grid.
The single wireframe within the triangular grid system is given its structural depth with thoughtful consideration of fabrication discrepancies.
electron charge partical motion
Analyses on the shortest path between strategically populated electron points. This was intended to extend through from the initial ideas of Patterning inspired by De Young Museum facade. It was discontinued because this idea is believed to inccur a threefold cost to the production of piezoelectric panels and is somewhat fulfils only aesthetic intentions.
Given the feedback from the final presentation of AIRnergy, aspect ratio of triangular panels needed serious re-consideration, and BMW Welt was suggested as a helpful precedent. Parametrically available options of iterations were explored and this motivated the further development of the AIRnergy panels with simple modifications of U & V density, relating the sizes back to humanly approachable scales and
fabricatable with CNC routing, Laser cutting and other locally available machines and domestic materials. Rather than a jitter definition, we have applied our selection process through height and comparison of local spaces.
Dissattisfied with the organiclike identity of growing panels throughout the surfaces, the group collectively delved into further options on creating a surface. Kangaroo Physics with spring forces have been explored here to seek for a better resolution in the panelling system.
cater for a perfectly equal size of panels throughout its entirety. The grid bends at the attractor point ends. This further motivated the group to rethink the constructability and connectivity of the design of AIRnergy.
Iterations prove to identify that modularity within the doubly curved identity of field line shell cannot
To fulfil a personal desire to exhibit the monstrous network of algorithmic devices that attributed to the production of the final, revised pin joint system. The definition accomodates proportional scaling, varying material thickness and two axes of rotation.
