As a result of parametric architecture, it is possible to experiment with new architectural forms and create unique spaces.
The Smart Mesh Building in Taipei was designed based on a parametric study.
The parametric architecture technique allows for the development of organic shapes based on parameters, such as spatial boundaries, volumes, and temperatures.
Parametric Study In order to create complex, versatile, and organic geometric designs, it uses a specialized tool. With Rhinoceros and its Grasshopper plugin, these forms can be controlled, just as other factors, such as exposure to sunlight during the day or a building’s variation in temperature.
The triangular shape of the plot allowed for experiments with new forms of parametric architecture.
This adaptive play results in a building with a volume made up of three arms that twist around a central Z-axis. The true singularity of the building is its façade, composed of a double skin of rhomboid elements that are adapted, with different opening sizes depending on the orientation and exposure to the sun. This parametric structure also offers views over the city of Taipei.
During the design process, integrated optimized parameters were applied to generate an energy-efficient tower. By using parametric tools, we were able to develop an original and exclusive product. Due to its parametric shapes, the building resembles a geometric lantern amid the city’s nightlife.
