Extrude to point02


Another test in order to create a basic square prisms on the lines that tessellate the surface. The height of prisms follows the normal parameters to the surface through the area centroide of shape tesseleted. The test was conducted with the help of Andrea Graziano from DigitAG& for the definition of normal axe in grasshopper. You can find the definition for test it.

Extrude to point01


It's only a simple test in grasshopper. I have to find how the normal vector of centroid area works...

I received this notice about an interesting ws from Claudia Paquero (ecoLogicStudio AA) and i post on my blog the brief:

"Adjacent to the major airport, Bakırkoy Pschiatric Hospital opens up the 90 hectares of its urban field and the intimate therapy room in for design ideas and interventions.Diploma and master students are invited to take part in multilevel investigations regarding the site for redevelopment and/or remodeling of the pschiatric healing space. Lately, there has been great move away from the panopticon layout and the oversized, out of sight asylum. The spatial performativities play an integrated role in the supercustomized re-modeling of the patients mind and body.

Working in teams students will be asked to respond with a system design in the multiple programatic combinatorics-choosing from a wide scope scales: the current and future site potentials down to the microscale landscape of the therapy space. The aim is to have an amalgamation of projects working in different scales, with prototypes and digital models, feeding in and out from other scales and projects, all working under the similar themes/consraints of the site-program.

The site and the program reveal gradiencies of private/common, open/closed, secure/insecure, acute/emergent, specific/generic. Peculiarities like overhead planes every 15min, dense pine woods of 30hectares and a byzantium archeological site are undersized by the minute sensibilities of schizophrenia, bipolarities and disorderlies.

The 10 day workshop open to design students who wish to work in a chosen focus scale of architecture, urbanism, material system design, in the novel methodologies and involving digital technologies. Information regarding site, program infeeds, current database is provided by the municipality, hospital management and the ministry of health. Students will be briefed on the current trends of psychiatric treatment by professionals.

The projects will be jurored at the end of the workshop and selected for maga-book publication by
the buildingcenter in 14-24 November 2008."

TilingTesselation01





First parametric investigation on tesselated surface. The tesselation works with U and V of surface as parametric lines and the z vector of the centroid point of the sub-surface created from four intersections points of the U and V lines. Original surface is parametric trough the implicit history of the initial curves wich create lofted surface. Next goal is to draw different tesselation from these points.

Pecha Kucha at Turin.


"Ideata e brevettata nel 2003 a Tokio da Klein Dytham Architecture con l'obiettivo di attrarre un pubblico di giovani e di artisti nel loro spazio di eventi multimediali SuperDeluxe, l'iniziativa Pecha Kucha Night è arrivata in Italia grazie ad Anna Termite e Mirko van den Winkel, export manager di Moroso, debuttando a Udine nel febbraio 2007.
Pecha-Kucha Night è una serata di incontro in cui architetti, artisti, interior designers, grafici, video artists, stilisti, editori, pubblicisti, studenti o chiunque appartenga all'industria creativa ha la possibilità di far conoscere al pubblico il proprio lavoro e le proprie idee."

Last lost competition_Masterplan Rivalta Casermette.

Un concorso di architettura per il comune di Rivalta, area "Casermette".

Il concorso prevedeva la riqualificazione spaziale e funzionale dell'area "Casermette" che convogliasse le aree residenziali e industriali delle frazioni Tetti Francesi e Gerbole. Il masterplan doveva presentare dei forti caratteri di progettazione sostenibile e di integrazione con l'esistente.



La nostra soluzione propone un' unione dei due quartieri e delle caratteristiche ambientali dell'area in un' unica matrice bioclimatica definita tramite la simulazione di un campo vettoriale che simula l'attività magnetica di due poli positivi ( i 2 quartieri) e uno negativo ( la direzione dei venti da nord-est rappresentata in un punto dal quale provengono i venti stessi).


E' stato progettato un edificio tipo a livello di concept che sfruttasse al meglio le condizioni ambientali ( raffrescamento e riscaldamento passivo e irraggiamento per la produzione di energia e calore) ed è stato prodotto un modello in scala 1:500 dell'area progettuale e dell'immediato intorno per l'analisi e il processo formale-compositivo.
