The use of algorithmic design software has become ubiquitous in the fields of architecture in recent years. From concept design to technical detailing, algorithmic modelling has enhanced the creativity of designers, enabling them to manage a much higher degree of complexity than the one allowed by traditional modelling. Informed by relevant parameters defined by the designer, algorithmic software is a rule-based tool to transform conceptual diagrams into rigorous and detailed digital models ready to be manufactured.
This course will introduce you to algorithm editor Grasshopper for use with Rhino's 3D modelling tools, presenting the software environment and logics as well as providing a series of techniques to approach algorithmic design at different scales.
Exercises throughout the course are likely to include:
By the end of the course, you'll be able to:
This course is taught by Andrea Bugli.
The course is suitable for beginners, but basic knowledge of Rhino is required.
Please note, in order to get the most out of the course, it is recommended that you set aside some time between lessons to review what was covered the previous week.
"The course is really useful and I'm feeling more confident now with the Grasshopper software."
