Beyond the Grid (Chinese & English Version)
Beyond the Grid (Chinese & English Version)

When I assumed the professorship for CAAD at the ETH in Zurich in September  2000, computer aided architectural design was mainly a matter of building models in a computer. Two directions were then prevalent: Under the title of  ‘virtual reality’—in simple terms, applied computer graphics—the surface features of  architecture were reproduced in the computer, while […]

Digital Chain
Digital Chain

Digital tools innovate design methods. The undergraduate workshop ‘Digital Chain’ led by Prof. Li Biao and Hao Hua made the techniques of computer programming, computational geometry, and CNC fabrication accessible to the students. The workshop pursues a seamless digital chain covering form-finding, material research, tectonic design, and NC production. The essential course of design lies […]

It […]

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 […]

Tooling
Tooling

The digital fabrication studio ‘Tooling’ seeks synergy between codes, design, materials and fabrication. The Processing IDE is employed as a tool for transforming inputs, developing designs and producing CNC data. We emphasize a digital chain from early-stage design to final production. Digital tooling does not only pursue precision and productivity but also motivates methodological innovations in […]

Assign Ji
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 […]

国际风情街 南京2014青奥工程
国际风情街 南京2014青奥工程

The real estate building will work for YOG (Nanjing 2014). Lab. AAA designed the facade of the building. Employed the principle of  sucking datum from image pixels, all the detail  of 5000 drawings (*.dwg files) may be generated within a short time. Year: 2014 国际风情街 南京青奥 Designer: Li Biao(李飚), Guo Zifeng(郭梓峰) [Cooperated with Jiangsu Generative Architectural Design Office CO., LTD] […]

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 […]

Angle_X
Angle_X

The pavilion named “Angle_X” was one of the earliest works for Lab. AAA. It was generated by pure java program. Simple Genetic Algorithm was employed and more than 10 rules were set for optimizing the structure of the pavilion.   Course: Generative Design and Digital Fabrication, School of Architecture, Southeast University Team Member: Xu Wen, […]
