algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Dragonfly is a first attempt at linking the theory of ecological perception to architecture. Given certain abstract programmatic events (e.g. view art, buy food, sit down, look up) and knowing roughly where they're supposed to happen, Dragonfly simulates a user navigating the proposed layout. By observing the user's behaviour, we can assess how effective the layout is.

Granted, in this example, the layout gets pretty chaotic, but it shows the in progress, folks.

Hello everyone!

Was this ever developed further? I am very interested in ABM and architecture.

Please let me know


Kind regards,

Thanks! We've got a couple changes to do before we post the plugin, but hopefully that should happen mid February. Right now, you can have multiple agents but they don't interact with each other (bit of a tricky problem...). Definitely on the list of things to add, though. Also, the view angle is 360 (as per Gibson's original formulation), but I think that could be an input without too much reworking...

Congrats!!!! Impressive. I always thought grasshopper was not "cut out" for agent based stuff, but it seems I was wrong. Have you released a plug-in yet? can you use multiple agents and what is the angle of the agent's view??
