algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Gerilla is a plugin for Grasshopper / Rhino that will allow you to run full building energy simulations on using the EnergyPlus simulation engine. It was born in the Product Architecture Lab at Stevens Institute of Technology in Fall of 2011 and is the result of the collaborative efforts of Michael Marvin, Drew Orvieto, and Ben Silverman. Gerilla has been developed as an open source, free to download plugin for Grasshopper (all you have to do is make sure to give us all the credit when you design your next amazing zero energy building).

Currently, Gerilla is still in it’s infancy, and as such we haven’t published the code and plugin to the internet yet, but if you are interested in wrestling the Gerilla feel free to contact us at:

Once things are developed a little further it is our intention to publish the plugin, install files, and libraries out to the net for all to download and enjoy. In the meantime, check out the Gerilla Primer and learn more about this exciting tool!
