Frixel is a finite element analysis program that’s so easy a 5 year old could use it. Provided only a closed curve representing a building massing and location for core, Frixel generates a 2 dimensional grid and runs structural analysis on it. You can tweak grid size, gravitation magnitude and lateral wind force to see how your design perfoms under different conditions. Additionally, it can … Continue reading frixel


Twist is a proof of concept project trying to replicate the power of the graphical algorithm editor Grasshopper3d in an independent programming environment. As an approach to generative design, this software allows you to dynamically manipulate the shape of the building by adjusting numerical parameters on the GUI and see the results on the go. Rotation, number of stories and their height are some of … Continue reading TWIST
