This video has been made for the final Innochain Exhibition and presents a series of modelling experiments that have been conducted during my PhD thesis.
From 0:20 to 0:50 : Interactive modelling for free-form timber structures. The library GraphViz and NetworkX have been used to generate the corresponding graphs and manage data.
From 0:50 to 1:45 : Development of a multi-scalar search interface called "LayerStalker". Many thanks to Luis Fraguada for helping in setting up the framework: https://github.com/PaulPoinet/LayerStalker. It relies on Dale Fugier's Chrome integration for Rhino: https://github.com/dalefugier/SampleCsChromium. This experiment browses the geometrical data sets generated by the consultancy practice Design-to-Production.
From 1:45 to 2:05 : Development of an multi-scalar exploratory interface called "LayerExplorer". This interface allows the user to zoom-in and out through the different layers and sub-layers organized by Design-to-Production. In this example, the user is able to access the GUID of each geometrical object. The interface relies on a Processing example available here: https://github.com/generative-design/Code-Package-Processing-3.x/tree/master/02_M/M_5_5_01_TOOL. I adapted it to explore Design-to-Production data sets and added extra features to navigate more easily across branches and sibling roots.
From 2:45 to 3:30 : Modelling experiment demonstrating a schema-based workflow in which a geometrical data set is converted between two modelling paradigms of two different companies (Design-to-Production and Buro Happold). The minimum required amount of information is transferred from Rhino (D2P) to Robot (BH), so full analysis can be operated within the second software. This experiment makes use of BHoM (Building Habitat object Model), an interoperability platform developed at Buro Happold for their in-house purposes.
From 3:30 to 4:20 : Modelling experiment involving multiple computational pipelines connected via Speckle streams. Those connections are being represented in parallel by the digital workflow's 'metagraph', allowing the user to get a better overview on the overall design process of a building project. This framework has been shared to the participants of the SimAUD workshop "Open Collaborative Design, Simulation & Analysis Flows" led by Dimitrie Stefanescu and myself at TU Delft on the 4th of June 2018.
From 4:20 to 4:50 : Presentation of "Grove", a submission proposal (developed by Tom Svilans and myself) for the 2017 Tallin Architecture Biennale Competition. This project has been awarded the 2nd place, among more than 200 proposals.
