  2. A commissioned investigation into the possibilities of BREAD’s material research for application in interior surfaces. Cilia is a set of selectively laser sintered surface tiles made up of tens of thousands of fibres. Each tile is made from a single piece of Nylon, yet its surface is soft to the touch.

  4. About Chidostudio

    Chido Studio es una plataforma de investigación y exploración de diseño paramétrico / generativo aplicado al diseño industrial, arquitectura y arte digital, por medio de lenguajes de programación, para crear nuevas estrategias de diseño y su producción digital. Una parte de nuestra exploración e investigación es por medio de nuestros Workshops y conferencias, así como en la consultoría a diversos despachos y oficinas de diseño.

    Chidostudio 01 Rhinoceros

    En esta serie de tutoriales uno podrá conocer diversas características y ejemplos de utilización del diseño paramétrico, a través de Rhino y Grasshopper. Nuestra misión es dar a conocer esta tendencia en Latino América con el fin de cambiar el paradigma de la imposibilidad de utilización de esta herramienta.
    El diseño paramétrico se enfoca en el proceso de desarrollo más que en el resultado final, teniendo los parámetros que componen a tu proyecto tan libres como uno lo desee. Una buena analogía es con una hoja de Excel la cual puede recalcularse con cada cambio.

    Este primer episodio trata sobre la interfaz de Rhinoceros. El objetivo es conocer suficientemente la interfaz de este software para poder adentrarnos en el diseño paramétrico.
    Es importante recalcar que Rhino es un software CAD y por lo tanto comparte características con otros tipos de modeladores parecidos: Autocad, Sketch up, 3d Max etc.

  5. The Silk Pavilion explores the relationship between digital and biological fabrication on product and architectural scales.

    The primary structure was created of 26 polygonal panels made of silk threads laid down by a CNC (Computer-Numerically Controlled) machine. Inspired by the silkworm’s ability to generate a 3D cocoon out of a single multi-property silk thread (1km in length), the overall geometry of the pavilion was created using an algorithm that assigns a single continuous thread across patches providing various degrees of density.

    Overall density variation was informed by the silkworm itself deployed as a biological “printer” in the creation of a secondary structure. A swarm of 6,500 silkworms was positioned at the bottom rim of the scaffold spinning flat non-woven silk patches as they locally reinforced the gaps across CNC-deposited silk fibers. Following their pupation stage the silkworms were removed. Resulting moths can produce 1.5 million eggs with the potential of constructing up to 250 additional pavilions.

    Affected by spatial and environmental conditions including geometrical density as well as variation in natural light and heat, the silkworms were found to migrate to darker and denser areas. Desired light effects informed variations in material organization across the surface area of the structure. A season-specific sun path diagram mapping solar trajectories in space dictated the location, size and density of apertures within the structure in order to lock-in rays of natural light entering the pavilion from South and East elevations. The central oculus is located against the East elevation and may be used as a sun-clock.

    Parallel basic research explored the use of silkworms as entities that can “compute” material organization based on external performance criteria. Specifically, we explored the formation of non-woven fiber structures generated by the silkworms as a computational schema for determining shape and material optimization of fiber-based surface structures.

    Research and Design by the Mediated Matter Research Group at the MIT Media Lab in collaboration with Prof. Fiorenzo Omenetto (TUFTS University) and Dr. James Weaver (WYSS Institute, Harvard University). Mediated Matter researchers include Markus Kayser, Jared Laucks, Carlos David Gonzalez Uribe, Jorge Duro-Royo and Neri Oxman (Director).
