# How to create a surface similar to the Metropol Parasol in Seville?

Hi

I'm just using grasshopper, I am a student of engineering . For an exam, I decided to create a structure similar to the Metropol Parasol in Seville, how do I create that division on the grid on asurface by grasshopper? Do you have any tutorials you can recommend, thanks!

It's called a waffle structure, I don't know much on this topic but you can google it.

At the very basic level, you can do this simply in Rhino.

Create a volume, cut this volume in x and y direction with the Contour command. Then extrude the contours to give them thickness.

Same basic process is done on GH. Further steps depend on what you want to do with the structure. This forum has loads of examples.

first you need a bone structure:

after you have your surfaces, you can now create the waffle for this:

he dedackel, you should help me. (:

nono, you should help me (-:  (und nur falls Du auf die Idee kommste einer weiteren Antwort: Spiegel, Doppel Spiegel hoch unendlich (hahaha))

Thanks a lot

Yes! For a college test, I have to create a structure where I can insert elements such as photovoltaic panels and micro wind turbines and at the same time both be enjoyed. I think to create a surface plot with this because it is modular, adaptable, and the wind goes through it! Can you tell me the way you've got? Also could you tell me how can I put in grasshopper parameters related to wind and sun in order to create me my parametric surface!

Thanks a lot!

The definition uses a mathematical function to generate the surface.
You can modify the definition to other geometry enter your convenience.

luck!

Thanks very much for your suggestions, I begin to prepare the surface, just arrive at asatisfactory result will publish it for your ratings! In the meantime if you have other tips and tutorials will be welcome! :)
