algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Nowadays, in a globalized networked digital world, data is more accessible than ever. Digital Data is both abundant and ubiquitous and come in various forms and structures. At the same time it is often supported that data is not of any significance if it is not organised or perceived within a certain context.
[DvsI] is the sequel of last year’s workshop [RvsR], which concluded to the fact that gathering/generating,filtering and conveying information presents a new frontier for Parametric Design. Before exploring such frontiers, one has to clearly define the relation and interdependencies betweendata and information. DvsI, aims in researching, understanding and utilising the dipole data/information,and applying it in design through the possibilities facilitated by parametric design and digital fabricationtools and methods.
The workshop is consequently expected to address the following questions:
Where can we search for such data sources and how can we transform them into usable design information?How do parametric design tools and digital fabrication methods allow harvesting, mapping andexploiting data/information? Can we support and drive our designs based on such informational foundations?What are the gains from applying these methods for both the design process and product?
