Proof of Concept #7 | Parametric exhibition design using Airtable
In this example, we see a slightly more elaborate design. As with proof of concept #1, we organize objects spatially along walls. This time the exhibition walls are more elaborate. Color based on number of wallsNumber of walls based on layoutWidth and shape of walls based on objectsRandom function to generate unpeaked number of resultsLive…

Proof of Concept #6 | Multilingual object texts from Airtable to a hanging plan
A time-consuming part of many exhibitions is the hanging plan. This demonstration shows how object texts in multiple languages can be stored in the database. These texts can then be loaded into a design software and immediately implemented into the design. When the text in the table is updated, the text in the design file…

Proof of Concept #5 | Airtable + bi-directional data transfer
So far Excel has been used in the examples but in this demonstration we will see how to use the more comprehensive online database system Airtable. Airtable is currently used by the chief curators of the Barbican Centre in London for exchanging data and managing traveling exhibitions. I was shown this in an interview with…

Proof of Concept #4 | Analyze Visibility
The ability to analyze performance is an important quality of parametric design. Especially during discussions with curators, it became clear how much potential there is in the ability to analyze object data and design data in a parametric setup while using a central database. Several areas of analysis emerged. One can think of: Security: are…
Proof of Concept #3 | Maximize visibility with an evolutionary solver
In this proof of concept, we’ll explore an example where we let the computer do the work for us. A parametric algorithm in grasshopper can work as a design tool where the user interacts with sliders and data. But in this example, we will explore a proof of concept where we let the computer present…

Proof of Concept #2 | Layout with a fixed stock of display tables
In this concept we see how the same technology can be applied to help organize exhibitions within a more defined setting. Here we see how immediate feedback is generated based on the distribution of objects in an imaginary art exhibition. As in Proof of Concept #1, an online Excel document is connected via Grasshopper to…

Proof of Concept #1 | Parametric Exhibition from Excel
This is an initial Proof of Concept for Gallerbee worked out using an exchange between an online Excel document that interacted with a 3D design via Grasshopper, Excel was chosen because it is easy to use for initial testing and is a frequently chosen program by exhibition organizations. The following data can be processed in…

Image tracer with pattern options
Grasshopper3D can also be used for graphic design, i.e. parametric graphic design for 2-dimensional applications. This post is about building an image tracer based on brightness and contrast.
Preliminary research Gallerbee
In exhibition design and experience design, the subject is leading and the design is supporting. Based on this philosophy, a parametric approach is appropriate: namely, a strategy in which data from the objects determines what the design looks like by means of algorithms. This could be, for example, a graphical timeline generated automatically from the…
Grasshopper game: DragRace with Firebase
When teaching Grasshopper, it is sometimes nice to take a slightly different approach. For example in the form of a game. DragRace is about uploading scores to an online database and trying to win with the fastest score!
Teaching in the Corona era
My brilliant colleagues at TU Delft were faced with the challenge of switching a subject for hundreds of students to 100% online education in just a few days. With their experience in the gaming world, they came up with the idea to apply Discord in education. Discord is an all-in-one voice and text chat for gamers.
Automatic generation of cut-lines for a boat cover
For sailmaker Houtkoop.nl StudioFG has developed several scripts to automatically generate drawings for hems and other fabric parts. Read here about this project.

Together with Serdar Aşut and Jerzy Latka StudioFG organized an eCAADe workshop. Design Express / Vectorworks sponsored the event financially and provided the Marionette software (part of Vectorworks). Using a flexmold and PETG panels we created double curved panels. Sponsor: Design Express / Vectorworks. Conference: eCAADe 2018 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Q3X1OlKxj4 This 360 video shows the end of the workshop where the participants…
These renderings were made in the preliminary design phase for an exhibition in the Stadsmuseum Harderwijk. The exhibition design was by XPEX Amsterdam.
Computational design pavilion with the TU Delft
With great pleasure we again teach the course Technoledge in which we realize a pavilion together with master students of TU Delft and PWR Wroclaw from design to realization in 7 weeks. The basis for the production is the parametrically controllable flexmould. Setting up the flexmouldLight on the back of the pavilionPavilion in the makingWorking…

Design and realization 60 m showcase
Commissioned by XPEX Amsterdam, StudioFG collaborated in the design and realization of on of the longest display cases in the Netherlands for a hand made 60-meter carpet. More about the project: Stichting de Flevowand StudioFG also provided the renderings for the project. The total display case eventually had a length of 60 meters and was…
