generative modeling for Rhino
What is Grasshopper?
A quite simple Question, but very difficult to answer. I tried to define it, but whatever I came up with, did not reflect the real power and greatness of this fabulous tool.
So today I opened a grasshopper 3d article at wikipedia with a minimal definition
and would like to invite you all to help define this peace of software.
Here is a reference for Grasshopper that may help up on Wikipedia:
Grasshopper is used to apply parameters to 3d models to ensure accuracy of a design.

Can you find them and source them?
Any sources would be helpful.
There is an interview with David Rutten on page 28 of the Italian MixExperience community's online magazine, tools numero 1, where David explains the development process and thinking behind Grasshopper.

I wanted to add the School of Architecture at University of Virginia (explodebreps.wordpress.com)where I teach and also Univ. of Texas at Austin, Harvard, California College of the Arts. While I know with certainty these schools, I have anecdotal knowledge of many school experimenting with GH. Our research office (drippsphinneystudio.com) shows some small projects designed with Gh and will be presenting urban analysis and design proposals using GH for a neighborhood in Baltimore to the city planning commission, interested public groups, and the local AIA in March.
