***In response to the overwhelming interest in the April Parametric Design Workshop, we will conduct a second “overflow” workshop later this month. Many of the seats for this workshop are already spoken for so if you would like to participate, please reserve your seat via the Paypal button below or contact us directly.
This workshop is a two-day intensive parametric design workshop to be held in Brooklyn during the weekend of April 28-29, 2012. In a fast-paced and hands-on learning environment, this workshop will engage both the conceptual as well as technical domains of applied parametric design. Rhino, in conjunction with the parametric modeling plug-in Grasshopper, offers the possibility to explore parametric and computational design with unprecedented fluidity. Leveraging this capacity, we have structured this workshop around a series of design strategies and case-study exercises with the capacity to generate and control degrees of variation within fields of entities. Emphasis will be placed on workflows that utilize constraint-based design, visualization techniques, and environmental influencers to discover novel and inventive design solutions.
This workshop will consist of a series of instructional lectures, open work sessions, and guided exercises, beginning with an introduction to Algorithmic Processes and Computational Geometry. The workshop is structured to foster open discourse surrounding design applications as well as to allow each participant time to iteratively develop design vignettes. As part of a larger online infrastructure, modeLab, this workshop provides participants with continued support and knowledge to draw upon for future learning. Attendance will be limited to provide each participant maximum dedicated time with instructors.
