Bengesht in 4th Robotics and ROS Meetup

Last Wednesday, I presented Bengesht and ROS.GH as a communication mechanism between Grasshopper and ROS in 4th Robotics and ROS Meetup at ANYbotics AG, Zurich. Websocket components of Bengesht establish a bi-directional connection with RosBridge node and ROS.GH components can parse the exchanged JSON messages.

Pasajes Arquitectura has featured Cyber-Physical Macro Matter in their 148th issue! This article in the Madrid-based magazine is the latest publication (after Archdaily, Detail magazine, …) that covers our project. Same as before, the release of this article is thanks to researchers at the Institute for Computational Design and Construction, University of Stuttgart [link].

Dynamische und rekonfigurierbare Dachstruktur

[prestigious!] Detail magazine has covered “Cyber-Physical Macro matter” in its latest printed issue (12.2018) and its website! A three pages article titled “Dynamische und Rekonfigurierbare Dachstruktur” and written by Bettina Sigmund describes our project.

The preparation of this amazing article is thanks to the kind efforts of our ITECH M.Sc. coordinator Katja Rinderspacher, our tutors Dylan Wood and Maria Yablonina and professor Achim Menges.

Alireza Taghaboni won first Royal Academy Dorfman Award

One of the key milestones in my career path is working under the supervision of Dr. Alireza Taghaboni (NextOffice) in Tehran, Iran. On the 4th of July, He was awarded the 1st Royal Academy Dorfman Prize for promising architects.


Ars Electronica Innovation Forum 2018:
Cyber-Physical Macro Material

On Thursday, September 6, 2018, my group-mate Miguel Alfalo and our tutors Dylan Wood and Maria Yablonina are going to present our thesis project “Cyber-Physical Macro Material” as part of the inaugural Ars Electronica Innovation Forum: Get Inspired.


Using attributes as identifier in Grasshopper

One year after finishing working at Knippers-Helbig engineering office a question about Bengesht’s DivCCX component intrigued me to write about “Using attributes in Grasshopper to keep track of objects!”.

Working on the engineering of Metro Riyadh project (a grid structure), we had to deal with changing data structures and still keeping track of each element for the next operation. Using objects attributes or UserText to store their path was the solution.


Cyber Physical Macro Matter at Ars Electronica Center

Our thesis project has been displayed at Ars Electronica center in Linz, Austria as part of “Creative Robotic 2018” exhibition. This exhibition presents a collection of projects in which robotic systems are being used outside of the industrial realm.


Serial interface for ros

Combination of Arduino with a ROS based ecosystem has kept coming to my day to day projects in the last two years of my ITECH studies which pushed me to finally organize and publish SERIAL_IO package.
