algorithmic modeling for Rhino


Space Syntax

Space Syntax is a theory of architecture and built environment that seeks to explain the effect of spatial configurations on behavioral patterns of people. SYNTACTIC tools bring Space Syntax theory into parametric design workflows. More information on syntactic design methodology:

Hi Daniel Hambleton, Sorry for my late reaction! I have been extremely busy with education in the past weeks. Thank you for sharing your interesting work! I will be happy to discuss future joint projects.

Hi all, 

Thanks for your support. Sorry for not doing as promised. All components are ready as VB scripts but we need to wrap them into a GHA. We are struggling a bit with the new way of making a GHA (grasshopper add-on file) due to a few minor issues. So, I can't promise a day now; but in principle, it should not take more than a couple of days.

Hi all,

All components are ready. We are preparing an example file and a short video. I hope we can do all this in a couple of hours/days :).

Hi, any news on release date? It would be nice if you could include for example a sample video like you did your other plug in, I find it very useful.
