Upsilon – Robotic Timber Construction
Upsilon – Robotic Timber Construction

The Upsilon Pavilion presented the robotic technology of Southeast University at the 7th China International Robot Show (CIROS 2018), 4-7 July, 2018. The 5.8×5.8×3.7m Pavilion consists of 145 timber bars fabricated by a robotic milling system and 87 metal connectors cut by a laser cutter. Each connector joins three bars. The structure uses 0.56 cubic meter […]

mero – Robotic Timber Construction
mero – Robotic Timber Construction

The ‘mero’ pine sphere in ZDICP Nanjing is the first constructed instance among the mero class. Each member of the mero class is parameterized, furthermore, all components of any mero installation are geometrically unique. Thus, the mero pavilion is similar to natural organism within which the form is differentiated anywhere. Contrast to industrial uniform products, […]

Robotic Timber Construction
Robotic Timber Construction

The Neuron project built a novel thin-shell structure with advanced methods of computational design & robotic fabrication. The wood pavilion, located in the campus at Nanjing University, spans about seven meters. The entire installation is made of 61 pieces of irregular plywood panels connected by their own “fingers”, without any nails or glue. The team […]

2.5D Print
2.5D Print

Process: 1. Generate geometric data (Eclipse, Java). 2. Convert geometric data into G-code (Eclipse, Java). 3. Print with G-code. printer: FDM, delta robot. material: PLA. elapsed time: 1 hour per piece. print head run: 120m-150m per piece. height: 0.15m. topology: single closed curve per layer.   by Hao Hua, Guo Zifeng November 2015 . .

Robotic Machining
Robotic Machining

Multiple axis robots have brought a lot of inspirations to free-form surface fabrication. One strategy assembles materials to construct complex structures, for instance, robotic 3D printing and robotic masonry. The other chooses material-removal process. For example, the TRI_V project of Lab.AAA cut polystyrene boards with hot wire to produce shell components. While the ‘Generative Surface Machining’ project […]

optimization of the plots

  This project mainly deals with the problems of the reconstruction of the HuiZhou Village,Ji Cun. It realizes a Huizhou Style residential space generating system, including both village planning and architectural designing. The main concern of the generation system is the self-organizing mechanism of village and pattern extraction of the HuiZhou Style residence. It extracts […]

Pixel Replica
Pixel Replica

Pixel Replica is a self-organizing map that replicates any images on various scales. The program “tiles” the sample image by simulating the implicit patterns inside the image rather than by copying the image. Furthermore, this “learning” process could mimic the image with voxels, in other words, invent a 3D version of the 2D image. The “mimicking” […]

Rectangular Division
Rectangular Division

There are any algorithms for spatial subdivision, for example: Voronoi divides space into convex hull of polygons, which unmatched too much to normal architectural spaces. The research employs model of multi-agent system, and each plot works as a simple agent similar to rectangle, yet the whole dynamic system presents achievement which couldn’t be implemented by […]

How do virtual dimensions relate with real spaces?  This experiment investigates topological manifolds and Euclidean space. As we know, a 1-dimensional manifold in 2-dimensional space can be projected to a 1-dimensional map (line). Likewise, a 2d manifold in 3d space can be mapped as a 2d map (surface). In order to explore the freedom of […]

Block Apartment Generating
Block Apartment Generating

The government of Xuzhou, China decided to build a new town for local farmers, that, the living area of the farmers will be gathered in this new town, while the land is accumulated as well, outside of it. This project is a computer generated version of the apartments region of the new town. (based on […]

Case-based Design with SketchUp models
Case-based Design with SketchUp models

The research takes three-dimensional mesh models of architecture as the sources of cases. The computer program is supposed to produce new designs out of cases in the form of 3d mesh models. Most case-based design (CBD) researches on architecture focused on the 2d drawings of architecture. However, 3d models catch more information of buildings than […]
