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 […]

“Tri_V” – KUKA Architectural Fabrication
“Tri_V” – KUKA Architectural Fabrication

In this experiment, in designing and fabricating this “Tri_V”(Triangulated Vault) construction, we tested the way of architectural generative design and the process of the digital chain. The physique data was generated by program(Processing – Java), and then transformed to manufactural data according to rules, thus the machine code was acquired to run the KUKA robot […]

“Tri_C” – CNC Design & Construction
“Tri_C” – CNC Design & Construction

In this project, we need to design and build a piece of furniture based on the dimension of human figure. Our group intended to build a sofa and teapoy for students in our department. As we found that students tend to have different postures in their chairs at different levels of tiredness, we proposed to […]

Musical Column
Musical Column

“Musical Column” is an computational design exercise in the course “Generative Art and Digital Fabrication”, made up by multiple layers(1200 layers in total), completely generated in the computer and fabricated by the CNC machine. This column is generated from the datum which are sucked from a song. The datum from the song are analysed and […]

Surface Wall – 南京理工大学校庆雕塑墙
Surface Wall – 南京理工大学校庆雕塑墙

This surface wall was built for the 60th Anniversary of Nanjing University of Science and Technology in July 2013. It was designed completed in computer using Java. The principle of generating this wall is the superposition of waves. Multiple waves effect a surface which is made up by point array at the same time, then the superposition will get […]

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 […]
