Tangential Dreams at Burning Man 2016

Hi Guys,

Very happy to let you know that our project Tangential Dreams, built for Burning Man 2016 (pictures below), was shortlisted for the Architizer Award! Designed entirely with Grasshopper3D, the project uses the tangents of helicoid curves to maximize off-the-shelf timber into an expressive installation. We stenciled 1,000 people's dream on the tangents for people to read as they climb and write on the structure.

I hope you can help us win this…

Kangaroo Documentation for research purposes

Hallo everybody,

I asked myself if there is a proper documentation existing

that explanes the principle how Kangaroo is working.

I need that because for proper research work done 

with the use of Kangaroo it would be really necessary to 

document the functionality of the program.

Looking forward to your answers.

With best regards,

Kartal Pendik Masterplan by Zaha Hadid Architects (GH Analysis)

I undertook this project to learn more about the use of parametric systems in urban design. My intentions were to recreate the Kartal Pendik Masterplan and understand the principles behind it. As this is an ongoing project I do not expect to create exact copy of the project, but to get myself thinking in a linear logical way despite the experimental nature of the project. Here is some more information on the project by the lead architect Patrick Schumacher: The project is to constitute a…
