algorithmic modeling for Rhino
GENERATIVE MORPHOLOGIES v2 is a workshop intended for architects, students of Architecture and Arts, professional designers and artists who would like to learn new techniques of design, production and presentation; to feel the workflow of some of the top ranked architectural universities. It is an opportunity for professionals to join and exchange ideas with a team of world reputable tutors.
GENERATIVE MORPHOLOGIES v2 will focus on exploring the potential of parametrically driven generative processes and their combinations. By those processes we mean growth algorithms, production systems, physics and chemistry based reactions. While some of those notions may be known for decades, the usage of parametric software can ease merging and crossing between them, therefore enriching them with new possibilities. One of the main ideas behind the workshop is to collide emergent processes with deterministic systems and gain control over the final complex outcome of the algorithm, while maintaining its' valuable qualities.
GENERATIVE MORPHOLOGIES v2 will use the Anemone plug-in as the main workflow driver. From the practical point of view, we will make sure to briefly cover the Grasshopper basics, dive deep into data tree concept, learn about simple scripting in GH, compare the usual GH workflow with looping paradigms (Anemone, Hoopsnake and Octopus) and much more.
The goal is creating a project that each participant can proudly include in his portfolio using the state of the art programs and techniques.
For attending the workshop there is no previous software experience required.
