generative modeling for Rhino
Architecture: Realtime Physics for Space Planning
"This is a preview of a parametric conceptual design tool for architectural
practice that I have been developing at NBBJ. I wanted to develop a
system that allows designers to quickly organize and understand complex
architectural programmes in three dimensions.
It is an advancement of the traditional bubble diagram; it solves
adjacency requirements automatically and suggests planimetric and
sectional relationships. The resulting diagrams are not formal
solutions; they are simply organizational diagrams with solved
adjacencies and accurate required areas. The diagrams are raw
materials, meant to be manipulated sculpturally, or even squeezed into a
The tool was created in the Grasshopper plug-in for Rhino. Custom components, written in VB.NET,
read programme data directly from Excel into Grasshopper. The tool
uses the Kangaroo engine for realtime spring dynamics simulation."
hey Marc, great stuff. Curious if you are sharing this yet? IF not would you have any resources I you could point me towards, maybe some helping in your research?
Thanks Mark, Very interesting and promising
i am doing a research in this field and i was looking for information about it
Hope to see this tool soon!)
i just found your video, so amazing! it would be great to play around with it. is there any possiblity to get this definition? im working on something like this for 2 months but get stuck...
one year ago you wrote, that you maybe publish you definition, after testing it...
it would be so great if i could have a look!!!
so if there is a way: email@example.com
Fantastic potential in this demonstration. Is there any chance you would share the definition, in full or part?
I saw a presentation by Jacob Simons about a rapid prototyping lab at NBBJ--were you involved? He presented some grasshopper definitions for planning complex medical facilities. I am taking some steps in this direction. If you are not planning to share the work, I'll post some follow-up questions.
We're not sharing the tool yet... but feel free to ask questions. There are some questions answered on the vimeo page:
