Segnalo l'interessantissimo blog dello studio newyorkese SOFTlab. Il loro ultimo lavoro CHROMAtex è apparso su numerosissimi siti di design e architettura. Segnalo inoltre che hanno dedicato un recente post alla spiegazione del processo progettuale e produttivo dell'installazione tramite grasshopper.

Digital Crafting

"The research network investigates how new digital production methods are instigating profound changes in the design and building of architecture. Developing the term digital crafting, the network examines how the maturing of interfaces between the design space of the architect and the production space of the manufacturer is leading to the shaping of a new material practice in architecture."

"DIVA-for-Rhino is a sustainable design plug-in for the Rhinoceros - NURBS modeling for Windows application. The plug-in has been developed by Christoph Reinhart, Alstan Jakubiec, Kera Lagios and Jeff Niemasz at the the GSD-Squared research initiative at Harvard University and allows users to carry out a series of performance evaluations of individual buildings and urban landscapes including:
- Radiation Maps
- Visualizations (Radiance)
Climate-Based Metrics (Radiance/Daysim)
Glare Analysis (Radiance/Evalglare)
LEED IEQ Credit 8.1 Compliance (Radiance)"

volatile prototypes

"Volatile Prototypes was initiated in 2008 as a platform for design research and experimentation that embraces computational processes as a key ingredient of analysis and synthesis in design.
Specifically, Volatile Prototypes seeks to explore and promote the computation-enabled integration of the heterogenous information and processes taking part in the design of physical objects (such as functional parameters, material properties, organizational principles, manufacturing processes, representation issues etc.), in order to develop intuitive design environments and explore different design possibilities and prospects in spatial organization."
