Class: ARCH 714 | Winter 2014
Professor: Scott Dietz
Software: Rhinoceros, Grasshopper

Project description:

The Objective of the assignment was to use a Pattern Mapping strategy as an element of parametric design as it relates to surface Form and Structure/Enclosure inside Grasshopper graphical algorithm and Rhino Environment to develop the High-Speed Rail Grasshopper Canopy. The concept was developed by the biological pigments. The growth and the balance within them.

Project description:

The Objective of the assignment was to explore Increment and Recursive strategies as elements of parametric design as they relate to form, surface, and structure. The Project approached the Hypothetical Contoured site to create a Ground Scraper across the levels at different Scale and level of enclosure.The concept is derived from the natural trees as habitat and horizontal system with support of chop sticks like structural member.

Project description:
The Objective of the assignment is to explore reporting and repeating strategies inside adaptive Revit family mass modeling as elements of parametric design as they relate to a responsive facade enclosure and structure with varying point of influence. The concept is derived from the micro organisms form as inspiration and support them with mushroom like adaptive variable columns.

Type: Academic
Class: ELDS 745 | Spring 2013
Professor: Ryan Bacha
Software: Rhinoceros, CAD, Illustrator
Materials: Corrugated Board, Laser Machine

Project Description:
It focuses on the inherent value of digital prototypes to evaluate the viability and performance of the design intent with respect to material selection, methods, and the implications of assembly to document the fabrication process.The Concept was to develop the Waffled Green Wall prototype to create a diverse connections between the spaces and allow multiple use of the structure as book shelve or showcase and at same time grow portable vegetation to filter the interior space.
