Digital architecture

  1. 1. -The term ‘digital architecture’ has been coined by William Gibson in 1984. -CYBERSPACE- The world of digital architecture is largely a visual statement. -‘Cyber’ here means ‘computer processed’, conjoins the suffix ‘space’. -Digital architecture uses computer modeling, programming, simulation and imaging to create both virtual forms and physical structures -The terminology has also been used to refer to other aspects of architecture that feature digital technologies. -Architecture created digitally might not involve the use of actual materials. -Digital architecture allows complex calculations that delimit architects and allow a diverse range of complex forms to be created.
  2. 2. -Digital architecture has reinitiated a debate regarding curvilinearity, expressionism and role of technology in society leading to new forms of non- standard architecture. - The far eastern international digital design award (the FEIDAD award) has been in existence since 2000 and honours “innovative design created with the aid of digital media”.

  3. 3. SOFTWARES THAT ARE USED IN DIGITAL ARCHITECTURE: -Rhino -Google Sketch up -Computer programming software like C, C++ -Plug-in like grasshopper, artisns
  4. 4. MACHINE USED FOR DIGITAL DRAFTING: AXYZ 3-Axis Router: The AXYZ 4008 Series 3 Axis CNC Router is one of the most popular sizes for CNC Routers. Located in the Fabrication Lab, is capable of handling a range of tooling and application options in the industry and has a process width of 48”, a length of 96” and a 15” gantry height. The height limitations may vary depending upon project dimension, tool choice, and tool path design. Controller: The computers in the fabrication lab communicate to the CNC Router via the AXYZ A2MC Advanced Control system. The A2MC software, which is installed on the computers in the Fabrication Lab, is the heart of the AXYZ control network, providing high speed data processing capability, and motion control.
  5. 5. Software: RhinoCAM 2012 is a CAM plug‐in that runs inside of Rhinoceros 5 64 bit. This fully integrated RhinoCAM plug‐in seamlessly integrates Rhino’s CAD functionality with tool path generation and cutting simulation or verification. Submittal Process: Knowledge of rhinocam is essential to use CNC machine. It is verified that the proper bit has been selected and that the feeds and speeds associated with the job are correct. Verification of tool paths id done and the file must be cleared by a CNC TA before miling time can be booked.
  6. 6. -ZAHA HADID is an Iraq-British architect born on 31 October 1950 -Zaha Hadid’s style is boldly contemporary, organic and innovative -She creates design through new technology and materials -Her creations are more to do with topography and landscape, emulating a natural form. -Her concepts are “gravity defining”, “fragmentary” and “revolutionary”. -During postmodernism, Zaha Hadid declared that modernity was an incomplete project that deserves to be completed. She rekindled the flame of modernity with new desires of cocktails! New national stadium, Tokyo Chayoyangmen soho Jockey club tower, Hong Kong
  7. 7. HEYDER ALIYEV CULTURAL CENTRE, BAKU
  8. 8. -The cultural centre is situated in Baku, completed in 2012 -The centre is named after Hayder Aliyev, leader of Soviet era -The cultural centre represents a fluid form which emerges by folding of landscape’s natural topography -All the functions, along with entrances, are represented by folds in a single continuous surface -The centre houses a conference hall, a gallery hall, food and beverage area and a museum -As it folds inside, the skin erodes away to become an element of the interior landscape of the centre -The fluid form also connects the various cultural spaces providing each element its own identity and privacy. -It has three auditorium that are connected by a plaza -The series of ramps provided in interior connects the mezzanine levels above

  10. 10. BMW CENTRAL BUILDING,GERMANY
  11. 11. -The BMW central building located in Germany , completed in 2005 is the winning design for Pritzker award by Zaha Hadid -The central building is the nerve centre for BMW’s new manufacture of BMW 3 series vehicle -The three production building were connected by this central building -Designed as series of overlapping and interconnecting levels and spaces it blurs the separation between parts of complex -Each day, 650 BMW 3 Series, pass through the Central Building on an elevated conveyor as they move from one of the three production sheds to the next. -Dim blue LED lights highlight the vehicles after each stage. - These conveyors not only take the vehicles from one production shed to another, but do so directly through all of the functional spaces of the Central Building. - The offices, meeting rooms, and public relations facilities are all built around these elevated conveyors belts
  12. 12. -All of the load-bearing walls, floors, and office levels are made of cast-in-place concrete, while the roof structure is composed of structural steel beams and space frame construction. - The facade is clad in simple materials of like corrugated metal, channel glass, and glass curtain walls .
