” With my final thesis I optimized workflow for structural design. The goal was to create a place of truth in Grasshopper. Grasshopper links all relevant programs together and thus always has the latest data. Another goal was to reduce the architectural plan to the essentials for structural design.

From the imported reference lines I created the parametric model in Grasshopper. The 3d model of the structure was enhanced with important information from the structural design in Grasshopper. For example, the loads were imported directly from an Excel file. The complete structural model was sent to Rfem and calculated there. The final dimensions and results were then taken back to Grasshopper, processed and sent to Archicad. The result in Archicad is a fully informed structural model including a load transfer plan for the structural engineer of the concrete components.

With this consistent system, it is now easy to implement changes without a lot of manual effort in editing. This takes us one step further in the data consistency of a structural engineer.

The five months of training with PAZ Academy were very instructive for me. I thought your training concept was ingenious. It was great for me that I could flexibly schedule my training alongside my working hours. I also found the info videos with the inputs and the tasks great. With this method, you quickly progressed and gained an understanding of the parametric way of thinking.

With parametric design, programming knowledge and the resulting logical and structured thinking, a lot can be implemented more easily and efficiently. In my eyes, this knowledge should be as much a part of an engineering degree as mathematics.

Nora and Andrés thank you again from the bottom of my heart for this great training and support. ” – Sebastian

SWISSBAU 2022

PAZ Academy ist im Mai an der Swissbau 2022!

“Design Your Process”
Wir zeigen Sie, wie Sie Ihre eigenen Tools und Anwendungen erstellen und Ihren eigenen Prozess steuern können, anstatt kostenspieligen Programmen und Applikationen zu kaufen! ->

Wissen bedeutet Freiheit! ; )


Als Teil des Swissbau Innovation Lab wird unser Projekt DNA Tower in iRoom präsentiert. Dieses Innovationsprojekt vereint drei wichtige und dringende Themen : Design, Natur und Architektur.
Genauso wie unser Planet eine radikale Veränderung braucht, so braucht auch unsere Bau- und Designprozesse.

Biologie, Life-Science und Technologie bewegen uns schon seit langem, und mit diesen Zutaten ist die Idee des DNA-Towers entstanden. Wenn wir uns unsere gebaute Umwelt anschauen, sind industrielle Rohstoffe eine technologische Sackgasse. Wie wird unsere Bauindustrie aussehen, wenn wir anstatt ressourceintensiver und zentralisierter Fertigung Biologie, lebende Systemen und materiale Revolution nutzen, die wachsen, sich selbst reparieren und sich an die Umwelt anpassen können? Auf diese Fragen haben wir reflektiert und in dieser kürzen Zeit eine Antwort gegeben.


Mehr an der Swissbau vom 3. bis am 6. Mai an der Messe Basel in der Halle 1.0!

REIMAGINE BOKONI

Happy and proud of our amazing BSS Archicad Grasshopper Building System Specialist Katrin 1f1e8-1f1ed

 

“What was the Idea behind reimagining Bokoni. First I think it a very interesting and beautiful place, which is very little known and defiantly worth a stop to everyone which is on the way to Kruger National Park.

As previously motioned, I worked on a Project in South Africa which tried to develop the area, not just for tourist but the idea was to generally create work, infrastructure and better living conditions for locals. Which brings me to Bokoni it self. Bokoni was as you know a thriving society, before we Europeans thought we had to colonies Africa. I firmly believe that colonialization made the biggest contribution to poverty in Southern Africa. 

Bokoni proofs, that Africans had there own civilizations, in areas which these day only a fraction of people area able to survive. So the questions we as Architects have to ask our self, especially if we want to contribute to a social discourse about upliftment, is how are the social structures traditionally. Having studied the stone circles, 2 things stand out. Large families, in the sense of what we are seeing as extended family is close family, and the importance of cattle. This are to things which I experience a still two very important aspects of Southern African native culture. Only with that knowledge we can start to think about talking how we can help to transform society with architecture. I can get only a handful of people to research Bokoni  with my work  and get them to understand that there is all kind of social structures which all are relevant, we made a big step in the right direction. 

So to the BSS title. I learned a lot, and most importantly I learned the thinking behind visual programming, I think it’s the base to build on. “

Thanks KATRIN for your amazing work!

ISLAND TWISTING TOWERS

Happy and proud of our amazing BSS Rhino Inside Revit Building System Specialist Simmi  1f1f8-1f1ec

“Before I talk about my project or my experience I want to thank both of you for the guidance, support and love without which I can’t make it through.

The concept behind my project “island twisting tower” was a tower that emerges from the ground and twists as it grows up just like a plant grow upwards and twists as it goes up. The twisting tower is the main feature to focus on is a module of floors that repeats and twists  continuously at an angle. This concept is mirrored to form a twin twisting tower.  inspired by Singapore’s vision of green space, I have tried to include greenery in the sky through high-rise terraces and gardens. And this is “the party zone where magic happens”. This space allows the people to enjoy and relax.

“The orange mushroom” aka-viewing deck, allows people to gather and take a boat ride serves as a meeting point. It also gives an ant’s eye view perspective of the twin twisting tower and one can feel the scale of the building..landscaped pockets to provide space for play-area and spaces to enjoy view of the city  and sea.

And now let’s talk about the process….well, it was quite delightful to see how fast I was able to convert my concept design into a BIM model. I can imagine how many hours and how much manpower we usually take in a normal scenario . At the beginning of the Title  I thought it gonna be very hard for a non-scripting background but doing the final project has changed that mindset.” – Simmi

Thanks SIMMI for your amazing work and attitude!

THE SOLAR CLOCK OF SWISS HISTORY

Happy and proud of our amazing BSS Rhino Inside Revit Building System Specialist Maciej 1f1e8-1f1ed

 

 

The idea for this historical solar clock was in my head since the diploma at the end of my studies. I mothballed that then and focused on my professional job (as an architect). But when Nora and Andres asked me about my idea for the project, I proposed that among two other topics. They were so enthusiastic towards the solar clock, that I think we all knew from the start where it will go 🙂

Nora and Andres supported me the all the way in the project, both technically and in creative terms. It is really important to mention that that was not only about the Grasshopper script, but also about managing public data, visualization struggles, all the stuff around that you need to develop from A to Z.

The script I’ve built is generating a net consisting horizontally of days and vertically of hours. They are generated by calculating how shadow cast by the Sun is wandering through the year. In that generation only the very end of the shadow is taken into account. Thanks to that, the clock can point not only an hour at the particular moment, but also the month and the day of the month. The script is now ready to generate the net at every location in the world. Now, once we have the net, the design has a very good potential for historic places. Since you can point the hour, day and the month, why don’t place at this spot an adequate historical painting, logo or poster? Possibilities are limitless and they can be tailored according to every scale – of a city, country or continent.

And about the Title itself :

I started at PAZ Academy already with some ground knowledge of Dynamo in Revit. Nora and Andres guide how to develop that logic in your brain to have clean structure, and it is extremely important. I would also like to highlight the range that BSS Title covers – it’s not only Grasshopper, not only Rhino, but also all the stuff around. All the stuff that visual programming needs to talk to – plugins, visualization software, Revit quirks. PAZ is available to help you there at every point. BSS Title is a complete, well-rounded package and this is rarely seen on the marked. I recommend it gladly.” – Maciej

CITY OF REFLECTIONS by MARTA

Happy and proud of our amazing BSS Rhino Inside Revit Building System Specialist Marta 1f1ea-1f1f8

Here you can find her amazing project : CITY OF REFLECTIONS :

 

 

“Welcome to a place that can reflects you!! This is a place to enjoy the landscape, the nature, the environment, but where you can feel all that doubled. It has a double meaning, the city that reflects the surroundings but also the city to reflect about your own self.
You can get lost in the pillars of each tetrahedron, in the future will be more filled with nature, that will transform it into a kind of little forest, but then after that you can enjoy the sun or the rain, see the dawn or the dusk, or go up to a tetrahedron building and enjoy all the phases.

In the idea of generating this city from tetrahedrons was to think about how precious our lives are. Our live it is a treasure we must care for, and not only our lives as humans beings, but all creatures lives!

What I really liked during the process was that the script wasn´t static, it could change, and I COULD MAKE IT CHANGE, I really felt that I had a new tool, that I could speak another language, and I enjoyed a lot of this alive process, and it´s so exiting.” – Marta

VOXELAND

Happy and proud of our amazing BSS Archicad Grasshopper Building System Specialist Christian1f1e8-1f1ed

 

VOXELAND ist nicht sofort aus einer genialen Idee entstanden. Vielmehr aus einem Prozess des Dialogs mit PAZ, dem Suchen nach einem verbindenden Element, einer gewissen Poetik und menschlichen Touch im Projekt. Für das BSS Abschlussprojekt sollte Kreativität und Poetik aber ein zentraler Faktor sein.

Ich wollte eine Phantasiewelt erschaffen, die an jedem x-beliebigen Ort sein kann. Die Grundidee hinter VOXELAND ist – von der Linie zum Quadrat zum Würfel und endet im dreidimensionalen Gitter als Voxel plus etwas Phantasie. Bei der Ausprägung der Würfel und der Gebäude inmitten der Landschaft, entstehen diverse Lebensräume mit unterschiedlichen Qualitäten – aussen & innen, hoch & niedrig, Natur & Urbanität. Die Menschen dort fangen an die Räume mit Leben zu füllen. Sie wohnen, arbeiten, feiern, haben Spass, treiben Sport oder machen Ausflüge. Eine Phantasiewelt eben – VOXELAND.

Der BSS Titel beginnt mit einfachen Grundlagen sowohl in Rhino als auch in Grasshopper, vertieft in gut strukturierten Schritten den Umgang mit den Tools Rhino – Grasshopper – ArchiCAD und betrachtet darüberhinaus auch architektonische Grundlagen. Am Ende wird man sogar zum Regisseur und Film-Creator. Die Ausbildung zum Building System Specialist setzt eben nicht nur auf das reine Wissen und eine abstrakte Anwendung rund um die Parametric. Sondern man spürt von Woche zu Woche mehr, dass es Nora und Andrés sehr wichtig ist den Blick zu öffnen und vor allem die Kontrolle als Architekt über den Entwurf nie zu verlieren. Grasshopper, Rhino und auch alle andern Tools sind lediglich Hilfsmittel die uns helfen sollen, unsere Idee besser umzusetzen. Genau das habe ich auch bei meinem finalen Projekt festgestellt und umgesetzt.” – Christian

Thanks CHRISTIAN for your amazing work and attitude!

EXTRUDING EARTH

Happy and proud of our amazing BSS Archicad Grasshopper Building System Specialist Kay 1f1f1-1f1fa

 

 

As a final project for the BSS-Title, I set up the project called Extruding earth. The project revolves around the integration of an urban design concept within the natural lines of a hilly landscape. Now-a-days population numbers and the need for housing keeps on growing, resulting in narrowing and disrupting the nature reserves. Instead of Rising buildings from the ground up, I created an urban concept beneath the ground, keeping the landscape intact.

The inspiration for the concept was the image of fissures and cracks in dried earth. This creates a pattern of detached areas inside the landscape. Instead of resurrecting an urban concept from the ground up, my idea was the extrude the pattern into the earth to create the building volumes (like the detached dirt areas). Doing so, the natural flow of the landscape continues into the roofs of the buildings, thus creating a lower impact on the scenery and creating a more integrated system between the urban development and the surrounding area.

Within the concept I set up a parametric system to generate the urban plan within a hilly landscape and pattern. Both are fully editable so the placement on the landscape and the desired grid are customable to desire. For the project I chose a pattern equal to the dried up earth. The building system than creates the plot areas by offsetting the pattern to create the road structure and building plots. The system analyses the plot area to define the different typologies and creating the building perimeters. These perimeters are used to generate the first big step into the system: extruding the earth inward to create the building volumes and pathways!

The second part of the building system is generating the different building typologies out of the generated building volumes. The system analysed the measurements of the building plots to determine the building typologies. On the smaller plot sizes a closed building system is applied. For the larger plot sizes a building system with a inner gallery and courtyard garden is applied. A third system is applied to create the park strip between the buildings. All building systems inherit the form of the landscape into its roof structure. So from the top, the plan always follows the sloping lines of the hilly landscape to remain integrated into the natural landscape, creating an integrated urban system that’s part of the scenery. Then the different building designs are implemented by the building system generating the urban design as shown in the video.

The whole system reacts to different pattern and to different landscapes and could be expended by adding more building typologies to the system. But the system could also be adapted to react on a different context or high density environment.  

The foundation of the project is the knowledge I gained during the PAZ BSS Title. Nora and Andrés have shaped the course in a very playful and challenging way by drafting the PAZ Games. Although it is an intensive process, during the 4 months your knowledge of parametric design grows exponential. During the course they continuously challenge you to increase your parametric thinking and by using their platform they share their knowledge and skills under personal guidance! It’s been an amazing journey and I’m looking forward to implementing this knowledge in my working life. I’m very happy to be part of the PAZ community to keep on learning about parametric design and proud to have earned the BSS Title!” – Kay
