AIAAF 2019
Cottbus (Germany)
11th October 2019

Following the last year event which was really entertaining and educational, we are pleased to announce the second edition of the AIAAF symposium (AI-Aided Architectural Fabrication). The idea for AIAAF is to meet with researchers, manufacturers, architects, engineers, etc. to showcase the works, discuss the existing research problems and potentially form some partnerships. While we do keep the event open to the public, we intend to keep the talks technical and academia-oriented. This year a workshop will accompany the symposium, covering some of the above-mentioned topics on the first part of the day.

There are four goals for the Symposium:

1. Showcase the projects which are using fabrication aided by AI
2. Discuss outstanding robotic fabrication projects
3. Get familiar with the cutting edge simulation, modeling and learning methods
4. Find out new areas of collaboration between the AI and Fab disciplines

There will also be a workshop "Intro to ML for the AEC with Rhino/GH".

The WilkinsonEyre architecture practice created the Lille Langebro cycle and pedestrian swing bridge for Copenhagen.

The bridge is an application of curves to align with the moat and bank of the historic Christianshavn neighborhood and to accommodate boats passing through. 

The CAD software used was Rhino, Grasshopper, and MicroStation.

This is a landmark project both for Copenhagen and for the wider bridges sector. By combining cutting-edge design with unique technical solutions it has been possible to minimise the structural depth of the bridge and really push the boundaries of design, affording pedestrians and cyclists views across the harbour. The opening and closing of the bridge acts as a spectacle in itself, bringing a sense of theatre and excitement to the area. We’re delighted to have been able to work closely with Realdania and WilkinsonEyre to make the vision a reality.Simon Fryer, technical director, bridges, BuroHappold Engineering

After Marco Traverso's recent webinar on car rim design, this is a new demonstration of a parametric model done with Grasshopper and published through the ShapeDiver platform.

This time the parametric model is capable of generating a variety of tower designs, allowing specifications of the overall shape and dimensions, the type of balcony pattern style
using different image texturesas well as other architectural elements.

Fun! Rhino and Grasshopper show up in Bon Iver's promotional video for their new album and music tour, Autumn. It's instrumental in WhiteVOID's light show design.

Announcing the release of xNURBS Rhino Plug-in V2.0! This groundbreaking NURBS technique has unlimited capacities for solving NURBS and generating high-quality surfaces based on an energy-minimization method. 

The key features are:
  • Unlimited capacity for solving NURBS: Its optimization algorithm can solve virtually any NURBS surface on the fly (regardless of how complex the constraints are).
  • High-quality surfaces: Its optimization algorithm uses an energy-minimization method to generate the smoothest NURBS surfaces that meet all the inputted constraints.
  • Easy-to-use: It uses one simple UI for all kinds of NURBS modeling.
  • Native CAD surfaces: xNURBS generates native CAD surfaces, i.e., trimmed/untrimmed NURBS surfaces, which can be directly used for any CAD modeling operations.
The xNURBS plug-in is currently available in English, German, French, and Japanese.
