Taiwan Exhibition Centre

04_03_2011  I have moved from Cox architects and have had to leave this exciting project behind. My final work on this involved design development on the roof. Our structural system changed from the portal like truss frame to a triangulated grid frame with smaller bracing trusses. There is much work to be done on this […]

Commercial Work

For the past 6 years Luke has worked with Cox Architects in Sydney, Australia. His work is focused around front end design, parametric modeling, complex geometry and structures, architectural rendering and visualisation. Working closely with Phillip Cox, much of the recent work has been focused in Asia, including Singapore, Vietnam and China. Luke’s design skills […]

Parametric Modelling

Technicart assists architects and engineers through the application of high end digital modeling technologies. Below are some recent examples of projects utilising paramametric modeling techniques as generative design tools. Increasingly these tools are used in conjunction with 3D rendering and 3D animation techniques to explore new spatial possibilities. The parametric model allows designers to explore […]

Digital Fabrication

Technicart offers expert services for CAD/CAM, rapid prototyping and digital fabrication for the architecture industry in Sydney and abroad. Our directors have worked for some of Australias largest Architectural and design companies delivering accurate digital models for digital fabrication. The companies directors include Architects, Industrial designers and professional model makers who have experience in producing detailed digital […]

Bridges

Technicart has recently been modeling a lot of bridges for Cox Architects. 3D parametric modeling tools allow for the relatively easy adjustment of these structural systems, and some beautiful renders by Technnicart collaborator Peter Ung have given these models a sense of scale and atmosphere.

Tower Types

This post will act as a repository of experiments, WIP and ideas surrounding tower typologies. Shown below are some  investigations around tall  building types. Taiwan Tower Competition_Experiments_2010 China Office Tower_2010 I recently spent a short amount of time drafting this tower at work. A conventional office tower recalling Renzo Pianos Aurora place tower in Sydney.  […]
