algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Dimitrie Stefanescu, Algorithmic Abuse, PLAT Architectural Journal, Huston, Fall 2011.
The “crisis of complexity” in which the world and its architects apparently find themselves. This condition manifests itself as an information overload, which is seen as the natural consequence of an ever-larger pool of numbers and decimals
Context: Bogdan & Van Broeck was commissioned to undertake a feasibility study for a large scale mixed-use development in the centre of Brussels. The future development was to be formulated as a PPP (public-private partnership).
Problem: The assignment particulars called for the involvement of a wide number of actors: The
The Flemish Government asked for a study towards the development of a property management system that would allow for a integrated decision making process.
The existing situation did not allow for a collaborative approach to analysing and understanding the dynamics of the asset portfolio. This resulted in a fragmented decision
An exploration in letting geometrical shapes define themselves through a set of additive combinatorial operations.
Figure 1: Internal focus inverted as external defence.
Figure 2: Facetious simplicity and its permeability.
Figure 3: Undecided self-critical operations taking place.
Figure 4: When focus is dissolved by warm fuzzy feelings. Misleading personalities.
The goal of the research project is to examine how complex simulation-based design can be collated and communicated internally, within a design team, and externally, with the various stakeholders involved in the design process.

Speckle is an easy way to share 3D grasshopper-generated snippets (as long as they can be converted to a mesh, hehe).
It's really easy to use (you plugin meshes in a component, you double click it - now wait a few seconds, depending on the size & internet connection speed - and you get a sharable link): …Continue

A nifty little tool for creating connectors between pretty much any kind of planar surfaces which intersect themselves at the edges.
What it basically does is to output in a ordered structure the intersecting faces (as tree branches) and their intersection line. From there on you can continue to build up your own connectors…Continue
