VisualARQ presents a Rhino project: Kunsthaus in Graz, Austria
VisualARQ presents an extravagant building for contemporary art, the Kunsthaus museum that seems to float above Graz (Austria). In this Rhino project, Crab Studio has developed an innovative architectural design and a creative use of materials. The biomorphic building is covered by almost 1.300 blue translucent Plexiglas panels. The main façade contains a BIX installation, by Realities United, that allows to project videos and messages, acting as another exhibit space.
This remarkable building is physically linked to the one the most important old buildings of the city with a “needle”, a bridge and viewpoint, which connects traditional and contemporary architecture. (more…)
They have used Rhino for the project site plan and the basic curves for the house contour and element paths.
In the Grasshopper definition they can play with dimensions, heights and position of different VisualARQ objects such as walls, openings, slabs, stairs, etc, until they find the most convenient result.
KaAdLab is a young enthusiastic architectural company leaded by Jana Kasper and Alex Adam, located in the region of Saar-Lor-Lux-Rheinland-Pfalz-Wallonien.
VisualARQ analyzes a Rhino design: Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum
VisualARQ visits an architectural project designed with Rhino by Trahan Architects for the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum.
Pleated metal panels, evoking the shutters of the plantation houses of Louisiana, cover the outer skin of the building. This austere appearance does not even suggest the interior architecture. We enter into a succession of dynamic and sculptural curves, forming a winding path through the interior of the facilities. The inspiration is the river, which bends and excavates the ground before emptying into the nearby CaneRiverLake.
