Advanced Architectural Design with Rhinoceros and Grasshopper. This course is geared towards architects and spatial designers who wish to enhance their workflow with parametric and data rich modeling capabilities.
From concept design to documentation, every stage of the design process is an opportunity to increase efficiency and creativity. This course has been designed with the intent of giving architects access to simulation, analysis, and advanced modeling capabilities in order to better inform and execute design decisions throughout the design process. During the 24h course, we will look at the relationship between Rhinoceros 5, Grasshopper 3D, and associated plug ins to create workflow tools that can be tailored to each project.
This three day seminar / workshop will explore strategies for applying parametric design for the purpose of generating informed architectural models. During the course, participants will learn how to connect a digital model to external data sources such as environmental data and GIS databases. The participants will also learn how to evolve designs to reach multiple objective optimizations. This combination of tools and strategies will allow the participant to further their projects with informed design decisions.

- Relevant Tools: Rhinoceros 5 and Grasshopper 3D come bundled with tools which can inform our concept designs. We will look at these tools as well as plug-ins and add-ons which will enhance our design workflow. Special emphasis is placed on data management techniques.
- Site Data Sources: How do you start on a project when there is no relevant data to begin with? We will look at several GIS database sources which can give us access to site terrain and surrounding infrastructural (roads, rivers, existing buildings, etc) data.
- Analysis Techniques: We will look at how to objectively evaluate models based on a number of internal project parameters as well as external environmental metrics.
- Evolving Optimum Designs: Often our designs need to negotiate several project objectives. We will look at how to evolve our designs while optimizing for different project requirements.
- Extracting drawings and annotations from dynamic model.
- Once we have narrowed our design scope, we can begin to extract drawings, annotations, and relevant numbers.
