Paramatric Design using Dynamo-Project 2

Image
I conducted project 2 based on the same building.

Phoenix International Media Center


Completed: 2014
Height: 55 m Total floor area: 64,973 square meters Land area: 18,821 square meters Building owner: Phoenix Satellite Designer: Beijing Institute of Architectural Design (Group) Co., Ltd (BIAD) Developer: Phoenix Satellite Television

I did three parts in project 2.

1. Conceptual Mass Design using Dynamo
2. Parametric design of of using family parameters in Dynamo
3. Color change of curtain panel

1. I used the same method in the mass build in Dynamo.

Create a circle, put segmentation points on the circle and build the ellipse on the point, rotate the ellipse for a certain angle.


Then I build the solid form with the rotated ellipse.


The challenge is to calculate the angle and put the mass of Dynamo in a Revit project.



2. Parametric design of of using family parameters in Dynamo

I used the parameter in the mass family which is the radius of the bass circle as the passing parameter. So the mass size can be …
