DIGITAL PLANNING

PARAMETRIC MODELING

GEOMETRIA utilizes programming and advanced parametric 3D-modeling to create design tools that are built for the needs of the project at hand. Parametric 3D-modeling enables the automated generation and modeling of complex patterns, forms and structures with flexible and constantly adjustable results. The generated models, regardless of their visual complexity, are easy to control through automated processes, yet highly accurate and can be readily exported for digital fabrication purposes.

 

Through algorithm-aided processes and parametric modeling, you can achieve detailed and accurate design models that are flexible in their every aspect. This means that exploration of different design options is fast and even large design changes can occur in later phases of the design process. We design our parametric 3D models with information about the fabrication restrictions and other design constraints, which will ensure the rationality of the design.

SYSTEM DESIGN

Complex and multi-layered design solutions require a systematic approach to  organization and hierarchy of  components. GEOMETRIA approaches design tasks by developing rational component and element based systems that enable efficient manufacturing and construction processes. Through the relationships between different sub-systems components, layers and materials can be organized and optimized digitally before assembly.

 

Our approach in developing paneling, façade or structural systems is to design adaptable components that allow for a high level of customization, where the differentiation is achieved through minor variations between pieces. This allows us to realize complex shapes with a minimum amount of different pieces and possibility for geometric optimization in order to achieve repetition in fabrication.

BIM / PROJECT DATA EXHANGE

All of our 3D models are created as data rich Building Information Models, where component and project specific metadata is saved as part of the accurate geometry. This data can be fluently transferred between different parties, design software or even fabrication machinery. GEOMETRIA is experienced in solving projects’ data transfer processes from design to fabrication.

OPTIMIZATION

GEOMETRIA utilizes various optimization techniques in order to rationalize the production geometry, to lower fabrication costs, and to accommodate solar gain, shading, views and other environmental factors. The digital optimization is critical for performative efficiency, but also geometric and structural optimization are key factors in realizing complex surfaces and achieving results that are logical and cost-efficient to fabricate.

 

Optimization is a task that requires expertise in the aspects of the design that are under optimization. GEOMETRIA has extensive experience in this field, so we can provide you the best results with confidence.

SIMULATION

GEOMETRIA provides simulation services, created to ensure the performative quality of the project. Simulating different aspects creates confidence in design solutions, supports design and facilitates decision making.

 

GEOMETRIA can provide environmental simulation services in daylighting, lighting simulation, shadow studies, weather data, wind directionality and view angles. Combined with optimization methods, we can help you search for design solutions that best fit the desired environmental goals.

VISUALIZATION

GEOMETRIA provides visualization services allowing the customer to see the design in high-quality rendered still images or VR scenes. We have skills and tools to provide high-end visualizations that facilitate design making and help to convey the design ideas.

 

Different illustrations and diagrams are used, besides rendered images, in communications between different design parties. GEOMETRIA takes full advantage of the combination of algorithmic modeling tools and visualization tools, which allows us to handle complex and repetitive modeling tasks as part of the visualization process.

DIGITAL FABRICATION

FABRICATION MODELING

GEOMETRIA implements precision parametric CAD modeling, which enables the realization of non-standard building elements. The detailed CAD model contains the needed information for fabrication purposes, and is specifically constructed to meet the project’s manufacturing and construction processes.

 

GEOMETRIA has a wide network of fabrication experts, which we utilize in order for you to meet your production requirements. We have extensive knowledge in different types of production technologies, materials and fabrication data exchange processes.

ASSEMBLY DESIGN

Complex designs often require project specific and rational assembly concepts, procedures and instructions. GEOMETRIA specializes in solving manufacturing processes and the generation of accurate and informative documentation for construction.

 

With process automation, we can accurately create hundreds of pages of information to go with the digital fabrication data. These can aid the quality control of fabrication and element assembly.

FABRICATION DATA CREATION

GEOMETRIA generates digital fabrication data in various formats, so there is no need for any remodeling of building parts in the fabrication stage. We work closely together with manufacturers to find the best fabrication workflows.
