Beegraphy : exploring solar paths

This tutorial aims to facilitate the creation of a solar path, ensuring accurate determination of the sun’s position, orientation, and altitude. This precision is invaluable for architectural design, enabling architects to optimize building orientations for solar efficiency. Additionally, it serves as a tool for verifying the solar orientation of heritage sites.

This approach enables the precise tracing of solar paths and orientations throughout history. Various software tools and methods exist to determine the position of the sun at any point in the past, making it particularly valuable for archeoastronomy purposes.

We will use Beegraphy, the online Grasshopper for that.

Is this tutorial we will learn how to

  • Retrieve environmental data
  • Create a list and convert string to text, degrees to radians
  • Convert polar coordinates to Cartesian coordinates
  • Construct la curve by interpolating points
  • Create and place a text
  • Create a sequence to have a print a series of numbers at a specific location
  • Create a loft and add colours
  • Edit groups and component for further public use
  • Testing a small simulation.

Designing with Artificial Intelligence

This tutorial aims to establish a tailored workflow that maximizes the potential of AI as a collaborative creative partner. It will cover two distinct topics. Firstly, we’ll explore designing while considering contextual factors, employing Autodesk’s Forma. Then, in the subsequent section, we’ll delve into utilizing Text to Image and Image to 3D techniques to cultivate aesthetic concepts.

Historical background

The first version of Abita+ dates back to 2001. Concepts are, in the computer world as in other domains, concepts that are discovered and forgotten, then rediscovered in the belief that they are innovative or original. At the dawn of the 20th century, to explore architectural solutions, there were three ways. The first was to mimic analogical tools and methods. This is the virtual drawing board such as AutoCad for example. The intellectual process is the same as for hand drawing, it is only the ease of corrections, re- editing and duplication that make it a very productive tool. The second path, less known and somewhat forgotten, is that of declarative modeling. In this method, the idea is to start with the expected result and work backwards through the inductive chain.
