This work offers an introduction to modeling objects with Grasshopper. Through a series of examples and tutorials, readers with learn how to build complex objects by combining simple components. Applications include both NURBS surface modeling and mesh manipulation techniques. Users can expand Grasshopper's capabilities even more by using a multitude of plug-ins, or connecting to external devices, such as an Arduino -- from back cover.

Matthew Ritchie. The Morning Line

The Morning Line is a 17-ton aluminium structure, which Matthew Ritchie calls a permeable 'anti-pavilion', a ruin and a monument all in one. Its form corresponds with Ritchie's efforts to create a coherent system of signs through art. The plans, sketches and computer animations in this book present The Morning Line as a highly complex structure, its fractal beauty captured in Todd Eberle's stunning photographs. In-depth texts and interviews between Ritchie and the architects involved discuss this 'anti-pavilion' as an interdisciplinary piece, somewhere between art, architecture, music, mathematics, cosmology, and science.

Collaborations in Architecture and Engineering focuses on team-building and problem-solving between architects and engineers to prepare you for working together in practice. It provides an overview and foundation for interdisciplinary collaboration so that you can create innovative proposals for optimization, performance, and aesthetic goals. It also shows you how to solve real-world problems and how to engage creatively with technological challenges so that you can be a productive member of any team. The authors, an architect and an engineer, share guidelines learned from their experiences and observations on how to insure productive communication, engage in interdisciplinary discussions, and establish common goals and values. Throughout the book are many case study examples of architect and engineer collaborations––such as those between SANAA and Mutsuro Sasaki, Foster + Partners and Buro Happold, Steven Holl and Guy Nordenson, and SHoP Architects and ARUP. The book also includes a discussion about integrated project delivery (IPD) contracts and administration, so you'll be ready for better integration.

Research in and on architecture is as complex as the discipline itself with its different specialist fields, and therefore the results often remain unconnected. Research Culture in Architecture combines digital and analog research issues and demonstrates how important cross-disciplinary cooperation in architecture is today. The complexity and increasing specialization are elaborated on in the various chapters and then linked to the core of architecture, i.e. design. Scientists from the theoretical and practical fields present research results in the following subjects: "design methodology", "architectural space, perception, and the human body", "analog and digital timber construction", "visualization", "robotics", "architectural practice and research", and "sustainability".

Computing the Environment presents practical workflows and guidance for designers to get feedback on their design using digital design tools on environmental performance. Starting with an extensive state-of-the-art survey of what top international offices are currently using in their design projects, this book presents detailed descriptions of the tools, algorithms, and workflows used and discusses the theories that underlie these methods. Project examples from Transsolar Klimaengineering, Buro Happold´s SMART Group, Behnish Behnisch Architects, Thomas Herzog, Autodesk Research are contextualized with quotes and references to key thinkers in this field such as Eric Winsberg, Andrew Marsh, Michelle Addington and Ali Malkawi.

This book reflects and expands on the current trend in the building industry to understand, simulate and ultimately design buildings by taking into consideration the interlinked elements and forces that act on them. Shifting away from the traditional focus, which was exclusively on building tasks, this approach presents new challenges in all areas of the industry, from material and structural to the urban scale. The book presents contributions including research papers and case studies, providing a comprehensive overview of the field as well as perspectives from related disciplines, such as computer science. The chapter authors were invited speakers at the 7th Symposium “Impact: Design With All Senses”, which took place at the University of the Arts in Berlin in September 2019.
