modeLab is pleased to announce it will be conducting a Parametric Design Workshop in New York City, February 27th/28th, 2010. Please find further information below. Registration can be done at the follow link. We hope to see you next month.
Parametric Design Workshop | NYC | February 2010
This workshop will engage the conceptual and technical domain of parametric design by introducing participants to systemic processes capable of registering and responding to a range of diverse ecologic criteria. Emphasis will be placed on workflows that utilize constraint-based design, associative modeling techniques, and environmental influencers to discover novel and inventive design solutions.
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 architectural design strategies with supporting content to foster a fast-paced and productive learning environment.
As part of a larger online infrastructure, modeLab
, this collection of Strategies, Primers,
provides workshop participants with continued support and knowledge to draw upon for future learning.
Attendance will be capped at 12 to provide each participant maximum dedicated time with instructors.
