algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Can the dichotomy between obsessive tooling and strong design agenda be overcome? Can innovative software like Grasshopper be the ideal platform to marry computation, creativity and ecological thinking? What can be done to speed up the process? Algorithmic Design Workshops is a platform created by ecoLogicStudio to engage these questions introducing novel parametric modeling techniques in the context of architecture and landscape design. Each event will be a opportunity for learning design techniques, testing new methods and debating their potential applications or evolution. Architects, Landscape architects, urban designers and students alike will find in the workshops a unique opportunity to improve their technical skills while confronting themselves with the most debated advanced design subjects.
This workshop, particularly suitable for beginner/intermediate users, offers a playful introduction to algorithmic and computational design with Grasshopper.
The ambition is to generate 3 dimensional artificial landscapes based on the recognition of natural pattern formations (valleys, mountains, dunes, marshes, coral reefs, etc.), their subdivision in territories of occupation and the development of related path systems. The workshop will start from processing satellite images of natural formations and extracting patterns from them with the GH point set reconstruction tools. Applicants will than begin the process of generation of 3D architectural landscapes based on a series of structuring operations and negotiations with the project site. An evaluation process will than follow and will allow the recognition of inhabitable spaces, accessible slopes and ground movement volumes.
