algorithmic modeling for Rhino


London-UK GH Group

A social group looking to inform & connect local and visiting Grasshopper users, or those interested in these subjects, in a Central London location, once in a while with a single presentation followed by beer, burgers, networking, chit chat etc.

UK supplier of Rhino software and training services Simply Rhino is helping to reach out to UK users, developers and visiting experts or interesting speakers like the guys from Evolute, Giulio Piacentino from McNeel Europe etc.  it seems to make sense that as these people travel through London a larger group gets to hear from them, we hope the group will come up with suggestions for new venues, one off speakers and focus.

Upcoming Events

Hello Everyone,

We're very excited to announce a new Grasshopper London-UK user meeting this December. It will take place at Heatherwick Studio 356-364 Gray's Inn Road, London, WC1X 8BH on the 13th December 2017 from 18:30 until 20:30. We will have presentations from Heatherwick Studio and AKT II.

Please visit the following page for more details and registration:

Heatherwick studio will present two projects covering the topic of designing, making and collaborating through computational tools. Heatherwick’s Geometry and Computational Design team will go through the computational processes behind design and making in the studio concentrating on two projects, Vessel in New York with a focus on driving the geometry and Al Fayah Park in Abu Dhabi with a focus on Form Finding and working with collaborative tools.

AKT II's presentation will explore a series of examples where this new approach was experimented, tested and improved, the Al Fayah Park in collaboration with Heatherwick studio and the 2016 Serpentine Pavilion with BIG, and more.

We're looking forward to seeing you all again!

Many thanks,

Paul and Arthur

Thanks a lot Mathias!  We're still looking for our next venue so very helpful to know that your space is an option. So far, we tried to have one meeting per term approximately.

Comment by Mathias Gmachl on April 11, 2014 at 3:13am

Hi, I am so gutted I missed the meeting this week. I had a submission deadline at 11pm that day...

If you are looking for a free venue, I'm happy to offer our studio/workshop space here:

Have you got plans for the next meeting? Could this be more regular?

Let me know


Comment by Arthur Mamou-Mani on April 4, 2014 at 1:56am

Hi Greg, We have updated the poster and will send the details and schedule :)
