Transcript of Copy of Parametric and Algorithmic Architecture

Strategies for parametric design in architecture.

Presented by :- Dania Abdel-Aziz
Dua'a Ma'ani
As the 21st century brought a new era for architectural design, CAD programs have evolved together with the idea of Form Finding. The possibilities offered make the collaboration of the architect with the computer now possible in terms of searching the appropriate form for given cases. Parametric Form Finding, meaning the procedure followed offering solutions to spatial problems by using changeable variables, is transferring generative approaches into the architectural design workflow by introducing a set of rules to describe the constraints of the form .
Parametric design softwares:-
1-Grasshopper plugin for Rhino.
2-Generative Components for Bently.
Is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools. Unlike RhinoScript, Grasshopper requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but still allows designers to build form generators from the simple to the awe-inspiring.
Examples for Parametric design projects.
Beijing National Stadium ( Bird's Nest )
National Aquatics Center ( Water Cube )
Shanghai Tower
An application of practice led research.
