algorithmic modeling for Rhino
International Digital Tectonics Workshop
Organized by: Shi Xinyu (DAMlab / Qingdao Technological University)
Tutors: Shi Xinyu, Wan Da (Tianjin Urban Construction Institute)
Guest Tutors: Olga Kovrikova (AL_TU), Alexandr Kalachev (AL_TU), Tudor Cosmatu (AL_TU)
Materialized Algorithm - Digital Tectonics workshop focuses on finding an appropriate design algorithm by implementing and embedding the material qualities into the design process.
Through the Rhino software tutorials, participants will get a short introduction to the nurbs-surface modeling techniques, which will be further used as a basis for form-finding and component development.
Grasshopper is a graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools which requires no specialized knowledge of programming or scripting. Sinceits existence it has been helping more and more professional designers to understand and use parametric modeling techniques. This workshop will start with the basic operation of Grasshopper integrating specific examples (Kangaroo, KingKong) which will help develop the concepts into built proposals.
Participants will have to start designing with physical models, creating a constant feedback loop between the physical and digital world allowing for the creation of differentiation and achievement of the desired geometric complexity. Finally a number of maximum two projects will be thoroughly developed and built.
