algorithmic modeling for Rhino
This workshop will introduce participants to the concepts and applications of parametric and scripted design logics in a fast-paced and hands-on learning environment. The workshop will investigate iteration, evaluation, and algorithmic strategies in VB.NET within Grasshopper. Over five evening sessions and one weekend work session, participants will develop and prototype scripted design output in coordination with digital fabrication. Participants will gain a core understanding of the techniques and syntax of extending the functionality of Grasshopper through scripting in VB.NET.
Rhino, in conjunction with the parametric modeling plug-in Grasshopper, offers the possibility to explore parametric and computational design with unprecedented fluidity. Leveraging this capacity, we have structured this workshop around a series of design strategies with supporting content to foster a fast-paced and productive learning environment. Furthermore, the workshop will provide participants with time for directed research and access to digital fabrication equipment (CNC 3-Axis Mill and CNC High Force Cutter) in our studio to develop individual design projects.
As part of a larger online infrastructure, modeLab, this workshop provides participants with continued support and knowledge to draw upon for future learning.
Attendance will be limited to provide each participant maximum dedicated time with instructors.
