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 walls Number of walls based on layout Width and shape of walls based on objects Random function to generate unpeaked…

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…
