Architecture: Realtime Physics for Space Planning
"This is a preview of a parametric conceptual design tool for architectural
practice that I have been developing at NBBJ. I wanted to develop a
system that allows designers to quickly organize and understand complex
architectural programmes in three dimensions.
It is an advancement of the traditional bubble diagram; it solves
adjacency requirements automatically and suggests planimetric and
sectional relationships. The resulting diagrams are not formal
solutions; they are simply organizational diagrams with solved
adjacencies and accurate required areas. The diagrams are raw
materials, meant to be manipulated sculpturally, or even squeezed into a
The tool was created in the Grasshopper plug-in for Rhino. Custom components, written in VB.NET,
read programme data directly from Excel into Grasshopper. The tool
uses the Kangaroo engine for realtime spring dynamics simulation."
JAJAJAJA ABDUCTED BY ADESK ====> LOL
for programmatic elements rapel each other you can use Plaw forces with strength positif value
that is interesting paper.
do ou know if there are any other research projects done in the field of Space layout planning specially using Grasshopper or Rhino ?
Found the thesis on http://www.google.com.au/search?aq=f&ix=hcb&sourceid=chrome...
