Parametric Design In-Class Competition

Primary tabs

The challenge:
Populate flat panels on a given complexly curved surface.

The Rules:

1- You can rebuild, rationalize, and approximate the given base surface as
long as you maintain its general shape.

2- The panel(s) can be singular, or composed of sub panels. In all cases,
they must be flat.

3- You get extra credit for making your panels of fixed size.

Best design will be awarded a personal one-year academic license of digital
project software. The winning design will be selected by jury.

Class Background:
In this class, we tried to explore 5 areas:

1- Limitations and potentials ofdifferent parameterization schemes in 2d and 3d.

2- Wire, surface and solid modeling operations in digital project including architecture and structure elements.

3- Assembly design (of products and parts), and team collaboration.

4- Aggregation of adaptive smart geometric components (power-copy objects).

5- Rationalization of geometry.
