algorithmic modeling for Rhino
INTRO LAB: Parametric Design with Grasshopper | 2012 August 17
INTRO LAB is a one-day workshop on the topic of Parametric Design with Grasshopper for Rhinoceros. In a fast-paced and hands-on learning environment, we will cover introductions to Algorithmic Design, Computational Geometry, and Parametric Modeling. Additionally, participants will explore concepts such as Object Attributes/Parameters, Part to Whole Relationships, and Data Flow. Emphasis will be placed on consistent organization of data through Lists and Data Trees and best practices for Creative Project Workflow Integration, File Modularity, and Data Visualization.
Lab participants will learn the Fundamental Concepts surrounding Parametric Design with Grasshopper for Rhinoceros and explore strategies for applying it within their Creative Process. Using the newly released version of Grasshopper 0.9, the Lab curriculum will track through a series of instructional presentations, open work sessions, and guided case-study exercises, which will include techniques for writing functions, simulating natural growth systems, defining object transformations, and constraint-based modeling. Participants from all creative fields and backgrounds are encouraged to attend and lend their perspective to the Lab. As part of a larger online infrastructure, modeLab, this workshop provides participants with continued support and knowledge to draw upon for future learning. This Lab will also serve as a hands-on Parametric Design Primer for Participants wishing to participate in the subsequent PATTERNING LAB.
