title Magnet-based Interactive Kinetic Bricks

summary Brick has been used in construction since ancient times and has been respected among other tectonic materials through out the history. Novel technologies recently have opened new horizons in using brick in architectural design. This paper investigates innovative implementation of bricks in kinetic architecture. Kinetic structures usually employ complex and high-cost mechanisms to come into force and their movements might be limited to some conditions. By the use of magnet in digital design, this research examines new methods for performing simple and affordable kinetic structures so as to create interactive relations between architecture and human being. Magnetic energy is applied in two ways to move a roof made of brick which is considered a heavy and masonry material. Consequently, it represents the hidden potentials of magnet as a renewable source of energy.

title Kinetic Architecture - Reinterpreting Persian Mathematics and Astronomy

summary The world where humans live in, is constantly changing. In order to interact with these conditions, it is necessary for the architects to create an environment with sufficient dynamics based on the needs and behavior of its users. Kinetic architecture allows occupants to experience new environments which could cause raising the efficiency of the buildings. Therefore, constructions with kinetic elements could serve better utilitarian purposes in different fields.In the following essay, studies are about using kinetic design and fabrication method in one project despite ordinary ways regard to the two main points; 1. The impact of Khayyam's mathematics and astronomy on the proposed kinetic architecture and 2. Creating interaction Between Indigenous ideas and Contemporary Architecture in Khayyam Memorial Pavilion. As a result, a model is designed and several prototypes have been built.This essay illustrates that with making a connection among architecture and other fields of study could lead designers to be more creative according to the existing limitation in each project.

title Design Optimum Responsive Façade Based on Visual Comfort and Energy Performance
source T. Fukuda, W. Huang, P. Janssen, K. Crolla, S. Alhadidi (eds.), Learning, Adapting and Prototyping - Proceedings of the 23rd CAADRIA Conference - Volume 2, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, 17-19 May 2018, pp. 93-102
summary Responsive Facades duo to continuously changes in climate conditions have an important role in reducing energy usage of buildings while providing higher level of visual comfort. This paper is a comparative study of responsive facades in a virtual format. Honeybee and Ladybug software were used for modeling and evaluating visual comfort as well as calculation of the energy consumption in a 3D model. It's a plug-in for grasshopper. This article's problem includes tow visual comfort criteria, DGP and illuminance. Various types of vertical and horizontal responsive facades were compared with a new form to achieve the optimal responsive façade. The results of research imply that with a few changes in secondary skin the new concept could slash energy use like common responsive facades while providing higher level of visual comfort. The important distinguishing point is the new concept from the same sample of responsive facades that is designed to pay more attention to the occupants' view connection with outside.
