recordings of live webinars with
Adrian Krężlik & Judyta Cichocka | Parametric Support
duration: 2 x 4 hours (twice the same sessions)
SOLAR & VIEW OPTIMIZATION
Optimization processes aiming in maximizing the quality of buildings based on the daylighting, light levels, radiation and views.
The first webinar in the Optimization Bundle introduce participants to metaheuristic optimization solving techniques. The training will cover evolutionary and particle swarm optimization applied to environmental problems such as radiation or amount of sunlight hours confronted with views.
Grasshopper plug-ins used: Silvereye, Galapagos, Octopus, Opossum, Ladybug, Honeybee, Elk, Leafcutter
CANOPY STRUCTURE OPTIMIZATION
This session will introduce participants to the concept of structural art and the creativity of structural design. Computational morphogenesis and structural form-finding will be explored through the parametric reinterpretation of Felix Candela’s thin-shell engineering designs. This webinar serves an introduction to Finite Element Analysis with Karamba, optimization processes with Swarm Intelligence (Silvereye) and Evolutionary Computation (Octopus). We will instruct participants how to easily develop optimization strategies that aim in optimizing more than one architectural feature at once. The objective of this webinar is to provide participants with a holistic understanding of the interaction of the form, structure and its architectural use by employment of the multi-criteria optimization methods and exploration of the solutions space of design problem.
Adrian Krężlik is a co-founder of Architektura Parametryczna - the biggest Polish firm dedicated to parametric education and co-founder of Parametric Support, a Berlin tech startup developing optimization techniques for architecture. He worked and collaborated on large scale projects in China, Saudi Arabia, US for the most innovative companies like Zaha Hadid Architects in London, FREE Fernando Romero, Rojkind Arquitectos in Mexico implementing digital strategies into design. In his work he focuses on use of new media in design and construction processes. He is an active player across parametric scene - teaching and organizing workshops, participating in Design Weeks, lecturing Parametric Design and Robotic Fabrication at School of Form and collaborating with several universities.
Judyta Cichocka is a co-founder of Parametric Support – a spin-off from TU Berlin , founder of Code of Space organization, PhD candidate at Technical University of Wroclaw, the main partner of Absolute Joint System in Poland, parametric design tutor at Victoria University of Wellington and at Advances of Architectural Geometry in London (2014) and Zürich (2016), co-author of Silvereye - an optimization tool based on Swarm Intelligence. She has been working both for academia and business, among others for: Technical University of Vienna, Irkutsk State Technical University, STEM Architects and APA Wojciechowski. She published multiple articles on optimization and parametric design.
