For this project this semester, I would like to identify these issues and design a stadium that could address the issues of accessibility, circulation and programatic intent. <br><br> The slides below are from the first pin up we had for this class. The classes postulates that we have done as much as we can with parametric modeling and have arrived in a post parametric world. How can we use parametric design to further the advance field of architecture. David Benjamin believes that the next step is the optimization of these designs. We can use a parametric modeler to create our geometry, then process them in a software that runs genetic algorithms [modeFrontier] and analyze their performance thru solvers [Robot Millennium//strucutral analysis], [Cosmos Flow, Computational Fluid Dynamics], or physical testing through digital fabrication techniques. These slides represent ...</p> http://archinect.com/blog/article/21452653/proof-4-the-game PROOF 4| THE GAME Dáve Kwon 2009-02-09T02:45:45-05:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <p>Taught by David Benjamin<br><br> A design studio sponsored by Robot Millennium, modeFrontier, CATIA, Buro Happold, and Skidmore, Owings &amp; Merrill<br><br> OVERVIEW<br><br> Suppose by now we can all create parametric models. Suppose we all write scripts that generate complex and dazzling geometry. As architects in the digital age, no doubt we use software to simulate the performance of buildings in relation to safety, structure, environment, and flows of air and water. And, as second nature, we use digital fabrication to create precise full-scale constructions of all shapes imaginable.<br><br> Now what?<br><br> How do we design in this new post parametric era? Once we internalize these techniques and take them for granted, when exactly should we employ one of them or another, and what new design possibilities now arise? What about the broader implications? Will scripts democratize design? Will they expose values and criteria that are typically hidden? Will architects exchange them in a spirit of collaborative, open sou...</p>
