Program for Optimizing design of Roofing Systems

I was very lucky to be apart of the design team of Grad students that created this project. The Optimization course was taught by Panagiotis Michalatos, the numerical design professor at Harvard University. This project is to optimize and deploy an overhead condition on to an assemblage of volumes to be arranged intuitively early in a building design work flow. The over head condition morphs to the constructions exterior set up by parameters that are fed real time by the moving volumes that symbolize blue foam model making. The over head can be pushed and pulled on expanded or contracted. The surface can be ported to Rhino to be penalized or piped as well as Voxel coated for seamless connections. Marching Cubes, you got to love them.

Co-op Geometry Design Program

A game written and designed for a Numerical Design Course at Harvard University. The course was taught by Panagiotis Michalatos, Professor at Harvard University as well as my Thesis adviser. This is a Multi player surface modeling tool. Each player starts on opposite sides of a peace of geometry that is imported from Rhino or 3dsmax. The Goal of the game is to try to apply more articulation to the surface of the geometry then the other player. Players use gloves that have Green and Red LEDs in the finger tips. These LEDs are picked up by the webcam on each player's laptop and used to control the characters position on the surface as well as modes of articulation. Partners on the project were Matthew Waxman, Will Choi, Carl D'Apolito-Dworkin
