CAADRIA & SmartGeometry workshops 2016

During the last days of March and at the beginning of April I collaborated with the organisation of two very interesting workshops, focused on architecture and micro-climate. The first one was CAADRIA workshop 2016 held at the Melbourne University, Australia (29-31 of March). Here more information. The second one was the SmartGeometry workshop 2016 held at the Chalmers University of Technology, in Gothemburg, Sweden (2-9 April). Here more information about that workshop.

Durante los últimos días de marzo y primeros días de abril colaboré en la organización de dos talleres donde se estudió la relación entre diseño y el análisis del micro clima. El primero fue el CAADRIA workshop 2016 realizado en la Universidad de Melbourne, en Australia (29-31 marzo). Acá pueden encontrar más información de ese taller. El segundo fue el SmartGeometry workshop 2016 realizado en la universidad de Chamber en Gotemburg, Suecia (2-9 abril). Acá un poco más de información sobre este taller.

The Mini Airflow Tunnel Project

Acá comparto mi ultimo proyecto. Un Mini túnel de viento para arquitectos y estudiantes de diseño que incorpora tecnología low-cost para visualización de datos en tiempo real.

The aim of this project is to develop and share an easy to use and low-cost tool for wind analysis with an empirical approach on physical wind simulation. This tool is a mini airflow tunnel that can provide graphical representations of airflow data for a quick feedback, visualisation and analysis, for architects and designers in the early design stage. This tool is suitable for preliminary analysis of aerodynamic phenomena near buildings, such as wind flow acceleration, that can produce discomfort issues on pedestrians. The mini airflow tunnel project is an association of analogue and digital technology: it uses electronic components for arduino technology and Rhino 3D software with Grasshopper3D and Firefly plugins for graphical visualisation of airflow data in real time.


Literature about Genetic Algorithm in Architecture.

I publish here a list of references recommended by a friend to learn about the fascinating field of genetic algorithms applied to architecture.
Publico aquí una lista de referencias que un compañero del programa de doctorado me recomendó para entender mas sobre el fascinante tema de los algoritmos genéticos aplicados en arquitectura.
