PANELIZE SURFACE
PANELIZE SURFACE

This tool was created to take a surface and rationalize it into flat panels that can be connected via a simple hinge connections.  An input curve can be used to scale the panels based on their proximity.

MOLD MAKER

This applet was developed to prep pancake molds for cnc surfacing.  A 3d brep can be sectioned based on variable material depths.

BLEND SURFACE
BLEND SURFACE

A custom applet was developed in Grasshopper to imitate the blend tool in Maya.  Currently the applet only works with two sufaces. Future iterations will allow averaging several surfaces for varying degrees of deformation.

DIAGRID OFFSET
DIAGRID OFFSET

A custom applet was developed in grasshopper to generate a custom diagrid pattern for cnc milling and architectural applications.  A surface and control curve are inputed which allow for free form deformation.  The resulting line work and points can then be used to generate a patch surface in rhino to create surface milled patterns for […]

THE FOLLOWING IMAGES ARE FROM A PROJECT IN DEVELOPMENT WITH EVANS AND PAUL. THE WALL SCREENS WERE DEVELOPED USING A CUSTOM PARAMETRIC APPLET THAT ALLOWED FOR AN EASY TRANSITION FROM A 3D MODEL TO CNC FILES READY FOR FABRICATION. THE PARAMETERS CAN BE CONTROLLED TO ALLOW FOR VARIABLE CUT DEPTHS WHICH CAN BE INTERPRETED INTO […]

PLEIN PAVILION

AS A PROJECT MANAGER AT EVANS AND PAUL,  I WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FABRICATION AND INSTALLATION OF THE SOLID SURFACE PORTION OF THE INTERIORS FOR UN STUDIO’S PLEIN PAVILION.  THE PROJECT REQUIRED RATIONALIZATION OF COMPLEX 3D GEOMETRY IN ORDER TO ESTABLISH A A SMOOTH FABRICATION WORKFLOW,

FLAT PACK FILM ROOM
FLAT PACK FILM ROOM

WHILE AT ACCONCI STUDIO I WORKED ON A STORABLE SCREENING ROOM FOR A MUSEUM. DUE TO ISSUES OF STORAGE AND EASE OF CONSTRUCTION, I DEVELOPED A PARAMETRIC PANELIZATION TECHNIQUE THAT GENERATES AN ORIGAMI SURFACE WITH VARIABLE DEPTHS THAT ALLOWS FOR THE USE OF FLAT MATERIALS THAT CAN BE EASILY REPLACED. EACH PANEL IS CONNECTED TO […]
