Event Description

This Parametric Design workshop will be a two-day workshop covering fundamental principles and concepts of using Grasshopper integrated within a performance driven design pipeline. The participants will learn the essential skills of manipulating  geometry using various computational methods. The workshop will specifically demonstrate how to control the performance related data flow from Autodesk Ecotect, Vasari and Maya into the parametric modeling environment of Grassshopper; how to generate complex 2D/3D patterns based on the abstract relationship among points, lines and surfaces; how to integrate Rhino’s surface modeling with Maya’s mesh modeling; how to use performance data baked from other program as the driver to manipulate adaptive geometries across the building skin.

Lecture Topics

  • Parametric design concepts
  • Computation for Performance Driven Design
