Deconstructing the Serpentine Pavilion (2016) from BIG

In this course we’ll take a look at the Serpentine Pavilion from BIG and we’ll use a variety of software to deconstruct this project. We’ll start by using Rhino and Grasshopper to find the right shape and size of the pavilion and we’ll continue by rationalizing the geometrical elements into a standardized set. We’ll finish by exporting the information we got from Grasshopper to Excel using FLUX.

Create an Organic Roof Structure using Parametric Design

In this course, we’re going to model the roof structure of the Centre Pompidou in Metz from Shigeru Ban architects. We choose this project as a reference because this project manages to combine very simple geometric shapes with a complex organic roof in an elegant way. The course has a nice mix of explicit modeling and parametric modeling to get the desired result of the roof structure.

Designing an installation using computational design tools

In the whole design process of this installation, we relied heavily on the use of computational design tools. This approach allowed us to be able to deliver high-quality information within the limited time window in a fast, accurate and efficient manner. In this blog post we’ll explain how and why these tools were used and in what stages of the design process.
