Introduction The core concept behind EcoFrame is to empower those interested in purchasing a pergola to design it themselves directly on the web. This tool not only simplifies the design process but also provides immediate feedback on important details like pricing. Tutorial STEP 1: The first step is to set the basic dimensions of your … Read more

ChromaEnergon

Energy Phenomena In the machine room model, Convection serves as the primary mechanism for transferring heat from the hot plate to the tubes containing thermochromic fluids. This convective process affects the temperature of the thermochromic liquid within the tubes, which in turn changes the chroma i.e, color intensity of the room, thereby influencing the circadian … Read more

Oasis

Integrating Radiation Shielding for a Safe and Sustainable Urban Environment Radiation is a threat in many industries, from space exploration to medical imaging. Effective design must take into account the unique challenges presented by radiation.

IN PURSUIT OF IDENTITY

Looking at these before-after photos the first word that comes to mind is fragility: the fragility of its former identity, the frugality of a particular type of life, the fragility of the built environment. Through demolishing and constructing new buildings we are endowing the place with new meanings and new ways of relating to the … Read more

Do Architects Dream of Electric Sheep?

The future of architecture is being shaped by a romantic embrace of technology, exemplified by the concept of the “electric sheep.”  Architects are integrating BIM, computational design, robotics and other advanced tools into their workflows, resulting in a transformative shift in design possibilities. This approach not only improves efficiency, but also fosters greater creativity and inclusivity … Read more

Quartz growth

Crystallization. What is it? Crystallization is a process in which a solid material forms from a liquid or gas phase, resulting in the arrangement of atoms or molecules in a highly ordered, three-dimensional structure known as a crystal lattice. This process is driven by changes in temperature, pressure, or the concentration of solute in a … Read more

ASSEMBLED ARCHITECTURE

The coming future will force architects to address the issues/necessities of density and the urgency to create more data-informed spatial configurations, such as assemblages, and embedding sets of specific architectural features. Being able to ‘inform’ large-scale systems, taking advantage of modularity, and defining the metrics toevaluate different spatial alternatives is a crucial ability. Custom Assemblage … Read more

LA BOLLA

In the year 2044, escalating city taxes have rendered travel to major urban centers unattainable for many, ushering in a period of decline for once-thriving cities. However, Rome emerges as a beacon of innovation, reversing its tax policies and spearheading the transformative “La Bolla” project. Through this initiative, Rome reclaims its status as a vibrant … Read more

Swarm Intelligence

This project explores the application of swarm intelligence in simulating fish behavior evading predators. Utilizing computational algorithms inspired by natural swarms, the simulation aims to mimic the collective movement patterns of fish, optimizing their escape routes. By implementing principles such as repulsion, alignment, and cohesion, the model simulates the coordinated response of a fish swarm … Read more

NEUMATIC LIQUID COLLISION

Introduction to Neumatic Colloids Nematic colloids are materials with perpendicular surface anchoring embedded in planar nematic liquid crystal (NLC) cells. Topological defects, such as point defects and disclination lines, are a necessary consequence of broken symmetry in the system. In nematic liquid crystals (NLCs), defects manifest as isolated points and disclination lines, which can form … Read more

Studies on Natural Flocking Behavior

A phenomenon in which self-propelled individuals, using only limited environmental information and simple rules, organize into an ordered motion. This ordering even occurs at two dimensions where ordering is not possible equilibrium systems.  Boid Movement Different Behaviors Alignment Behavior Alignment ensures that individual agents within a flock move in a consistent direction, fostering cohesive group … Read more
