This forum has been idling for quite some time. Keith and Phillip, we're waiting for those definitions!

Hi all, I'm putting together a course for myself to teach myself possibilities for parametric landscape -- Beginning with terrain, but interested in other applications. I have a shaky three year old foundation in grasshopper, but I'm hoping to shore it all up so I can make a course proposal for my university.  Any suggestions of plug-ins or other resources that any of you have, I would appreciate greatly!

Hey Alexander,

Your workshop sounds very interesting and I'm eager to find out more about your integration of ArcGIS with parametric modeling. We are currently working with our students at UNLV to do similar modeling and processes of environmental systems with geospatial data. So I would love to hear and see what your workshop is developing! We just had a mid semester pinup of the student work and wanted to share some of those samples too. Any feedback from anyone would be very much appreciated. Note that these are just photos and not the actual digital files so the quality may not be the greatest.

Hello there,

I'm also excited to see this syllabus and other work forthcoming.  I teach a workshop class that links grasshopper tools and techniques to landscape architecture agendas at USC. Most of my classes focus on creating an interaction between custom grasshopper (or ArcGIS) landscape analysis with landscape simulation and parametric design. Lately we've been focused on topography and its links with ecosystem & planting design and representation. I'll look for something to share with the group when I have some time to prepare it.

Very interesting Keith. thanks for sharing, looking forward to the defs as well.

Thanks again, Keith! It would be great to see some example definitions. I wish I could take your class!

Hi All--

Following up on my last post, I'm sharing my seminar syllabus: Simulated Natures.15-0824%20Simulated%20Natures.pdf

I'll also post some example definitions from our UPenn media courses later when I have more time.

Hi Iva and All,

As mentioned before I'm very curious and excited about integrating the data and analysis of environmental systems into design for a responsive dialogue between data and space. I'm currently co-teaching a studio course on Performative Landscape Architecture with an emphasis on campus and parking lot design. We are exposing the students to the scales of environmental systems in addition to the conditional relationship between the different env processes. Some specific elements include tree benefits/temperature reduction through monitoring tools and data collection, stormwater collection and erosion prevention, and others. If you or any others would like to converse more you can also direct message me or contact me at phillip.zawarus@unlv.edu.

Thank you Keith for sharing your syllabi! I look forward to checking it out to see how others are incorporating parametric design with their teaching. I will make an effort to post my syllabi as well!

Keith, thank you very much for the update and information. The courses seem very impressive and I am particularly interested in your e&s modeling technique via grasshopper...

Also, Phillip, the last time I checked penn state was also dabbling in grasshopper in their la program.

Thanks for keeping the group going!

Hi Keith,

Thanks for sharing the syllabi - the courses look great. I'd be interested in any other classes that teach Grasshopper within landscape architecture — there are some at the University of Toronto, Seoul National University and the GSD/AA that I know of, along with those mentioned by Phillip and Dennis mentioned below. As a relatively new practice it would be great to try and pool tools/techniques to get an idea of what is effective and achievable within a class.

Also I am currently working on a Grasshopper plugin as part of my PhD research, send me a direct message if you would be interested in helping to test it sometime in the future. It's a bit of a grab-bag in terms of its functionality having components for analysing/generating hydrology, planting, etc. If anyone is at ACADIA this month I'll be presenting a paper on some of the challenges I've found in approaching landscape architecture using computational design techniques — I'll see if I can post the paper/presentation here after!
