The files are available for dl. But you need to follow me a bit. I have created a Tumblr blog/site where you can dl the rhino/GH files from. It is called bricksource. Please send me your stuff or just an excel data sheet! (which I can turn to a 3d model for u) (@sstudiomm@gmail) if used the method or the files so I can upload them to the site. If you model a surface in rhino and use the GH file you will have a wall , the stencils, the paper molds, and an excel file. If you share your files or a screenshot of the patterns you make and your excel files we will be able to grow an on-line database of parametric brickwork. If you don’t help I will keep adding from time to time (so check the website out sometimes). However, if we can use crowd-sourcing we may be able to develop a fantastic online database of our work for public free use. Thus people can go to bricksource get an excel file, print or make the stencils, and make their own parametric walls easily. The GH file may look quite funny.
And let’s make an online gallery of the work @ sstudiommoonn.tumbler.com – although it sounds like studio moon, and that’s nice, it has another meaning too. Besides sounding like ßtudio MM, studiom means my studio in Farsi, and studiomoon means our studio. I have my own gallery @ sstudiomm.tumblr.com
Please help. A large percent of building industry functions maybe in developing countries almost independent of architects in a way. A wide range of builders DIY-ers to bank owners build and sadly or not, they all tend to sketch. And they build where most of the people live in. Introducing simple to use tools may be a way to help to change the look of the houses of the crowd.
Is architecture to serve the rich? 10 percent? I don’t like to start a new career in pistachio industry, and am not a great fan of 10 percent and yet look for a client. The client who is growing in shit holes. Maybe it is in developing countries that architecture is becoming a luxury or has become a long time ago. Exclusive, luxurious architecture may be equal to no architecture, and it seems like where Digital is standing in building industry.
As development is undergoing everybody will somehow meet an architect or sort of an architect in Iran as everybody is somehow engaged. But ordinary people may never meet an architect who knows what she/he does. Here there are small architecture offices especially in suburbs that grow close to municipality buildings here and there. They sell typical plans that are somehow validated beforehand or need much less time for validation. As the development is undergoing a large group are involved and they do not have time to wait for a new or weird structure to get validated. So it becomes very scary when you imagine a group of builders buying plans like shirts and building a city. And it gets much scarier when suddenly they pick up the ***** ugliest stone on earth as a trend. A light brown shit is (and has been for more than 10 years) the current **** trend in the background of kind of desert and soil. [Now bricks are picking up very slowly or maybe not because they say or think bricks take more time (this “They” mostly may refer to the mainstream methods, traditions or fashions.) The problem is it may take 15 days longer for the people who are always two years behind the schedule but yet what is assumed to be faster is picked, fake aura or bubble or whatever.] These people are being flattened with the desert in suburbs. But no worries they are immigrants from smaller cities to the capital or not very rich, Relax.
These offices may sometimes be owned by municipality employees that can help people get done faster. GOOD PEOPLE. But I am free to call what they (build) BUILDSHIT, as I have lived all my life in them and am still writing from such a shit hole. I may change the whole look of the place but I cannot even touch it, the wind comes from the door lock holes.
