Dubai electric sky
 
Electric skies during a stormy night in Dubai. Unfortunately, no lightning struck the tower.

"This is my art reef", says Mr. Di Bari at the end of the video, except the only "original" part is... the turtle shape. The rest of the design part is the work of others, taken in its results but misunderstood in its respective philosophy, potential and reach, and awkwardly assembled along with boasted claims and misused concepts (like the use of "bio-architecture").
The components of the "turtle" shown in the video at 15:00 to 17:00 (15:40 when the video zooms in) are in fact a repeated model of a piece designed by us (Co-de-iT) and 3D-printed by D-Shape in one piece (see http://www.co-de-it.com/wordpress/reef-test-piece.html
) for the sole purpose of being a test benchmark, to be submerged and monitor erosion, marine organism colonization and other essential variables for an effective real-world application. We are astonished to see how the research we are seriously conducting together with disguincio&co (see http://www.co-de-it.com/wordpress/reefs.html) and its inextricable design development have been twisted and flattened to such embarrassingly poor understanding of the design potential linked to 3D-printing (here approached in a totally naive fashion). A poor narrative that ignores completely the necessary science that should at least support its possible reach.
Aside from our considerations on the project qualities (there would be many others), we would really like to have clarifications from Mr. Di Bari on how our model found its way into his visuals, since it was never given out for free download, nor was its use directly authorized by us. Other material, see the slide sequence at 12:51-12:55, where our design for marina formations (which background is Tonicello Beach, Capo Vaticano in Italy, not Bahrein's coast - http://www.tropea.biz/images/residence-lameridiana/spiaggia-tonicello.jpg), along with a reef piece designed by James Gardiner (http://www.3ders.org/articles/20121030-worlds-first-3d-printed-reef.html), is also presented as Mr. Di Bari's design. If you want to steal, steal the concept and make it better instead of blatantly stitching pieces together to support a shallow concept.

Hi Jake, nice video series! For me it worked just by copying the perlin.py fil into the Rhino scripts folder:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\McNeel\Rhinoceros\5.0\scripts

After that I was already able to import it in the Python component in GH.

Superb bird of paradise
The Superb Bird-of-paradise (Lophorina superba), is a small, approximately 26 cm long bird.

The species has an unusually low population of females, and competition amongst males for mates is intensely fierce. This has led the species to have one of the most bizarre and elaborate courtship displays in the avian world. After carefully and meticulously preparing a "dance floor" (even scrubbing the dirt or branch smooth with leaves), the male first attracts a female with a loud call.

After the curious female approaches, his folded black feather cape and blue-green breast shield springs upward and spreads widely and symmetrically around its head, instantly transforming the frontal view of the bird into a spectacular ellipse-shaped creature that rhythmically snaps its tail feathers against the ground while hopping in frantic circles around the female. Even despite the elaborate display, the average female rejects 15-20 potential suitors before consenting to mate.

Introduction
Engineer and Researcher at Università di Bologna, MArch in Biodigital Architecture, PhD in Architecture, architect and coder at Co-de-iT - gravitates in the orbital that interweaves teaching & design ecologies in Computational design, articulating the force fields of complexity to trigger emergent potential. His recent interests regard the relations among matter and agency: Agent-Based modeling simulation of Complex Adaptive Systems in architecture coupled with form-finding strategies

._ skills

. tools, models and strategies are interacting in a co-evolutionary process, skills help the intensification of such interaction; algorithmic approach and programming logic allow for quick adaptation to new/different toolsets.

. digital skills & teaching in complex modeling (Rhinoceros, 3D Studio MAX, TopMod), generative techniques through algorithmic design with computational design tools (currently Grasshopper, 

Processing, Rhinoscript, past tools: Generative Components); good knowledge of Maya as well (no teaching or scripting though);

. design to fabrication skills (use of RhinoCAM, NetFABB), experience with lasercut, 3 axys CNC and rapid prototyping with several materials (3D pirnt, FDM, SLS, Stereolithography)

. graphic design with Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign
