LandIQ is a collection of apps built on the Giraffe platform in partnership with the NSW Government, WSP Australia and Aerometrex. James Strutt shares how his team has guided the project's success & detail on some real use cases.
We are excited to announce Giraffe version 2.8!
Tonnes of new Giraffe features have been released this month. Here is a quick snapshot of what we've been working on & is now available on the platform for you to use.
Whether you call it a townhome, rowhome, or townhouse, or even a terraced house, attached and semi-attached single-family homes have a historical precedent in many urban centers. A townhouse is “a usually single-family house of two or sometimes three stories that is usually connected to a similar house by a common sidewall” (Merriam-Webster). Let’s discover how to represent townhomes in Giraffe!
Giraffe, UDIA, UNSW and COX Architecture have built a computational design model that generates built form based on a combination of constraints layers and parameters like FSR, height of building and setbacks.
When taking sustainable urban development into account, it’s also important to consider the journey as well as the goal. One path may do the work efficiently or another may consume huge amounts of resources without ever increasing the quality of life.
When assessing a site - data is king. But so much time and energy can be lost by miscommunication. We've spoken to many architects, developers and engineers who've lost countless hours & had many sleepless nights over data translation errors.
