Seminar: Complutational Workshop

“Transformative Balloons”

The main goal of the seminar was to create and organize a workflow for the thesis.

Project explanation: a structure is balloons that inflate and deflate with hot and cold air. React to different climatic conditions and can be a shading system, protection from the wind, warm up and cool the environment.

Workflow explanation: first of all was important to made a MockUp to set the initial geometry. Later on apply engineering forces such as wind, inflation and collision between geometry. The last stage was to locate the resulting geometry to the specific location and using processing made a simulating and optimization.
