3rd LIXIL International University Architectural Competition


#rhino3d #grasshopper3d 3rd LIXIL International University Architectural Competition, organized by the LIXIL JS Foundation, invited university research laboratories for proposals for sustainable architecture under the theme of “Retreat in Nature” in Taiki-cho, Japan. http://www.archdaily.com/337021/3rd-lixil-international-university-architectural-competition Retreat in Nature In a world where there is no coherent growth, shared values become fragmented. More effort is required to forge a… Read More 3rd LIXIL International University Architectural Competition

Solar Access Analysis + Evolutionary Algorithms


#rhino3d #grasshopper3d #ecotect #maya #aftereffects  The intention of the research engage in the application of evolutionary algorithms in architecture; in order to achieve optimized geometry in terms of sustainable architecture resulted from solar radiation data evaluation. Evolutionary algorithms enable an evaluation of the solar radiation concept depending on the geometry by the application of the solar… Read More Solar Access Analysis + Evolutionary Algorithms

Diffusion-Limited Aggregation


#rhino3d #grasshopper3d #python #3dsmax #photoshop #aftereffects  The initial intention of the research engaged in the approximating search of the string of the L-System by applying of evolutionary algorithm in order to achieve defined conditions. However the stochastic recursion of the rewriting system; thus the L-System syntax; does not enable applying of the search algorithm. Nevertheless unlike… Read More Diffusion-Limited Aggregation

Minimal Surfaces


#rhino3d #grasshopper3d #python The research of minimal surfaces in R3 refers to Joseph-Louis Lagrange in 1762. Minimal surfaces refer to the Plateau’s problem. Minimal surfaces may be defined by Enneper-Weierstrass parameterization. Helicoid Helicoid was described by Euler in 1774 and by Jean Baptiste Meusnier in 1776. Helicoid refers to the definition of the right conoid along with Plücker’s… Read More Minimal Surfaces

Mandelbrot Set


  #rhino3d #grasshopper3d #python #chimpanzee3d The intention of the research was to create the Mandelbrot Set by using custom ghPython component in Grasshopper for Rhino. The Mandelbrot set, defined by Benoit B. Mandelbrot, is the set of complex numbers c obtained from the quadratic recurrence equation zn+1=zn2+c, which does not diverge when iterated. The boundary of the Mandelbrot set refers… Read More Mandelbrot Set

Julia Set


#rhino3d #grasshopper3d #python #chimpanzee3d The intention of the research was to create the Julia Set by using custom ghPython component in Grasshopper for Rhino. Julia sets were defined by french mathematician Gaston Julia who investigated the iterative properties (while the Julia set is associated with a quadratic equation of various degrees fc(z)= zn + c, Julia was… Read More Julia Set

Burning Ship


#rhino3d #grasshopper3d #python #chimpanzee3d The intention of the research was to create the Burning ship fractal by using custom ghPython component in Grasshopper for Rhino. The Burning Ship fractal, described by Michael Michelitsch and Otto E. Rössler in 1992, is defined by iterating the function zn+1 = |zn2|+ c. The difference between the formula of… Read More Burning Ship

Iterated Function System


  #rhino3d #grasshopper3d #python #chimpanzee3d The intention of the research was to create the Iterated function system (IFS) by using custom ghPython component in Grasshopper for Rhino. An iterated function system (IFS) introduced in 1981 is a set of affine transformations. The application of iterated function systems refers to fractals. IFS Maple Leaf Barnsley Fern The Barnsley Fern,… Read More Iterated Function System

Maps


#rhino3d #grasshopper3d #python #chimpanzee3d A dynamical system may be mathematically expressed either by continuous set of equations, or by discrete system, called map. Duffing Oscillator The Duffing oscillator named after German engineer Georg Wilhelm Christian Caspar Duffing.  The Duffing map refers to a non-linear second-order differential equation (The Duffing oscillator) that exhibits chaotic behavior.  In 1961, Youshisuke Ueda discovered… Read More Maps

Strange Attractors


#rhino3d #grasshopper3d #python #chimpanzee3d The intention of the research was to create strange attractors based on mathematic equations by using custom ghPython component in Grasshopper for Rhino. Chaotic systems are dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions. This sensitivity is known as the butterfly effect. A dynamical system may be mathematically expressed either by continuous set of equations,… Read More Strange Attractors

Nova Fractal


  #rhino3d #grasshopper3d #python The Nova fractal was created by Paul Derbyshire while estimating the Newton fractals. Paul Derbyshire modified the Newton’s method in order to improve the the rate of convergence. The Nova fractal is derived from this equation zn+1 = zn – R * f(zn) / f ‘(zn) while the initial function was f(z) = zp-1, and therefore the equation that is… Read More Nova Fractal

Social Knowledge Processes


#rhino3d #grasshopper3d The thesis concerns with the core social knowledge processes including communication, interaction, attention, perception, apperception and selfperception, which provide the required integration of individuals into the social environment. The thesis aims to approximate the progressive, responsible integration of individuals into the social environment; and the understanding of the social environment, often underestimated, or… Read More Social Knowledge Processes
