algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Join us in congratulating David Rutten who won a ACADIA 2012 "Innovative Research Award" on Saturday night in San Francisco. Over 400 enthusiastic ACADIA Awards Dinner attendees cheered as David's Acceptance Speech was projected in the nave of the CCA / California College of the Arts. Congrats David!!!

Quoting the Press Release:

The selection of David Rutten for the award in Innovative Research recognizes his profound impact to architecture and computation as the developer of the Logical Modeling plug-in, Grasshopper, for the Rhinoceros 3D CAD application. Grasshopper has been pivotal to the transformation of parametric design practices over the past five-plus years.

The Grasshopper environment is notable for empowering its users to generate behaviors and associations in digital models without the need to know conventional scripting techniques. Through the creation of this program, as well as Galapagos, he has made parametric design and system optimization easily accessible, and usable, to thousands of academics and practitioners. Mr. Rutten is known among his peers for being remarkably generous with his time. He provides continuous assistance to Grasshopper users through his tireless involvement on the Grasshopper blog and has remained actively supportive of the ACADIA community for many years.
