Thank you I am totally flattered! Yes, I studied Industrial Design at RISD. The first 3d modeling software I was introduced to was Rhino, but I have been using Maya for most of my career. Now that game engines can handle more polygons I want to experiment with Grasshopper.
Because of the project site is very hot and dry in summer at the same time cold and windy in winter, my main purposes were the getting as possible wind in summer avoiding as possible cold wind in winter. And i also arranged the least sun exposure areas with light exposure analysis with ecotect. Also sea breeze effect i calculated. The direction and speed of wind were determined for it. It is important passive cooling effect for area. for getting sea breeze into the structure one part of the general system more elevated than other part. It was a one whole term project. Lots of analysis i made.End of the analysis i check if they work or not with Vasari wind tunnel program. If you like you can check i little bit more explained version in http://aycaozlemakan.wix.com/architecture in Senior project. Thank you for interrested in:)
The architect at T2 use Rhino for parametic construction of the roof of the Pier. That's where we got curios. We, Aas-Jakobsen (www.aas-jakobsen.no) are looking at Rhino as a possible software to our bridge and road department, to help us with difficult geometry in construction projects.
We are all newbies in Rhino, but having a course in few weeks at a Norwegian company called Pivot.
actually that was defined for Internal Elastic Energy, which makes deflection you pointed about. Definition here i wrote, has some deep better making possible, like: "how can i make a range out of my item list to be checked by galapagos for selecting the best position of supports?"
Yes, my thesis topic was "Solar Responsive Facades". I used geco plugin to link ecotect to my rhino model via grasshopper. I developed a geometry derived from the scales on a reptile's skin. Calculated the incident solar radiation values on the facade of Kunthaus Graz, which were then used to control the aperture sizes of the populated geometry.
My grasshopper skills are very basic.. so nothing too fancy!! Here are few images:
oprosti na kasnjenju s odgovorom....prezivljavanje...dvogodisnja kcerka...bla bla. Ma to je bila jedna super def koju je Mateusz ostavio ...nakon patnje je kod mene proradila ....evo ti JPG da te prisjetim a ako hoces mogu ti i poslati ...ako ju nemas..vidim da si tu ko kod kuce pa ti se javim sa nekim pitanjima uskoro .
submission is in two weeks so it has to be finished pretty quick!!after that i'll be working on my presentation, so i'll probably make some video that i could post on the forum.
it still needs some process (and probably will still need after submission), especially because of the nature of the problem that has to be generalized for many cases and thus produces complicated data structures and laaarge calculation times!
yes the title sounds pretty serious :) i hope the outcome will be as well!!
not urban planning i am working on a smaller scale.It is actually optimization of placement of a building complex on site according to a couple of evaluation criteria: solar insolation and buildings proximity.
Yes i'm doing the master of building science in TU
