The focus of the workshop is to integrate and correlate the synergistic effect associated with simultaneous presence of different digital design- and analysis tools in an ongoing design process.
The main attention is set on easy to handle interface , which should be used at a early stage of conceptual design to respond to external and internal influences in a intelligent and sustainable way.
Participants will use the software Grasshopper as a parametric modeling plug-in for Rhino. The usage of this graphical algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhino’s 3-D modeling tools open up the possibility to construct highly parametrical complex models. To generate this complexity we will use live linkages to several programs listed below:
• Autodesk Ecotect Analysis and Radiance via GECO
• Processing, Excel or Open Office via gHowl
• FEA software GSA via SSI
In this 3 intense days, the participants should learn the workflow of the plug-ins with the help of examples and get an overview of the different software’s, there possibilities for evaluating the performance of a design or the usage of additional tools to be not chained to a single system .
(e.g. parametrical accentuation, parametrical formation, parametrical reaction)
