algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Realized already at the end of last year, the tram and bus shelter is located at the "Münchner Freiheit", Munich. Based on the successful competition entry by OX2 Architekten, Aachen, initially designed as a fibre composite construction, RPM Architekten, Munich were commissioned to realize the project in a material alternative. Diverse building components of the steel construction were generated via Grasshopper.

In the following are several results of the GH applications starting from the various ribs definitions to the seating furniture as the last piece installed on construction site.

Ribs. Vertical ribs declining linear in construction height / Ribs normal to roof surface

Light and Sound Elements / Traffic Signage / Tram Wires

Suspension geometry and position of drill-hole in undulating steel roof plate

Dome Structure on Columns.

Dome Structure on Columns. Point Mounting Geometry

Seating furniture. Controlled by Points and BiArc's

Thanks everybody. We definitely wanted to have a continuos surface and with a 1:1 mock-up we could see that it is possible to build such a surface. Actually it is a 10mm thick structural plate, there's no additional covering. The main reason why the final result is not as smooth as wished is that the short time frame of 8 months for prefabrication and assembly was definitely too short.
Cheers Michael

Really nice project. Especially the columns are well defined and executed. Unfortunately that does not count for the ceiling surfaces - did you originally wanted to have a continuously smooth finish there?

Really cool! Roof structure looks similar to ship construction.

Luis, it was Robert that started a discussion but not to worry... I found it again.

There are surely dozens more GH projects I've seen from time to time.

Excellent stuff Michael! We should have an area of the site for projects designed through GH. I thought Taz had started a post, but it would be nice to have more prominence on the website. Thank you for sharing!
