Gaurav Goel announced the publication of his first article in Window & Facade Magazine
This article talks about how biomimicry and computational design has influenced the discourse of facade design and is illustrated with one of Gaurav's design projects from a London competition.
Gaurav holds a master's degree in architecture from the University of Nottingham and a master's diploma in parametric design from Spain. In 2016, Goel founded Parametric Curiosity
, an architecture studio and social media blog for sharing digital explorations in parametric design.
Goel's research interests lie in form finding, temporary and permanent pavilion installations, form optimization, digital fabrication with CNC and 3D printing, architectural facades and other geometrical explorations using computational tools such as Rhino and Grasshopper.
Digital patterning, such as GeminiCAD Systems
, reduces the manual steps typically associated with 2D pattern making.
The recently introduced ExactFlat Monarch software system adds the ability to apply texture-mapped graphics directly to the pattern with perfect flow matching. With Eastman
automated cutting systems, the data is used to print and cut perfectly aligned pattern pieces ready for assembly.
This YouTube video demos the software ExactFlat Monarch
as it is used for furniture manufacturing.
