Parametricism - A New Global Style for Architecture and Urban Design. Back to WRITINGS Parametricism - A New Global Style for Architecture and Urban Design Patrik Schumacher, London 2008 Published in: AD Architectural Design - Digital Cities, Vol 79, No 4, July/August 2009, guest editor: Neil Leach, general editor: Helen Castle Abstract: Though parametricism has its roots in the digital animation techniques of the mid-1990s, it has only fully emerged in recent years with the development of advanced parametric design systems.

Grasshopper is an exciting and evolving modeling platform - the following examples attempt to develop a range of geometric examples to explore its form-making potentials. Andrew Payne, a GSAPP alum, has created a comprehensive primer on Grasshopper that can be found here. Grasshopper basic. RHINO: GRASSHOPPER DEFINITIONS - RHINO / GH. This definition was developed for my final thesis project to generate a louver system based on functional requirements within the building.


The performance was then tested in Ecotect. A large part of my thesis design involved invertible arena seating with many moving parts. I used Grasshopper as a means to develop the seating testing clearances, site lines, and many other variables. This definition looks at taking any curved surface, and generating weaving geometry across it. The parametric skyscraper uses Grasshopper to generate the entire structure.

My favorite definition to date, this definition generates box designs based on real boxes I crafted in the wood shop while in Grad school This definition extrudes geometry based on their proximity to a polyline attractor. Using a definition created by paramod, I wanted to see if I could edit the definition so that different panels could be combined to create a seamless surface This was one of the first definitions from scratch I ever created. Rinus Roelofs - Rhinoceros. @ [ u t o ] Fabrication. Grasshopper: Parametric CurvesThis module covers the basic parametric properties of curves along with common grasshopper methods for evaluating and dividing curves.


ARCH 598 Summer 2011information >> n-formations FABRICS // LATTICES // FIELDSThis course is designed to introduce and explore computational design, algorithmic thinking, and digital manufacturing–both: the larger ramifications that emerging digital technologies and ideas are having architectural theory via readings, discussions, presentations; and the practical application of these ideas and tools through a series of hands-on, iterative modeling and fabrication assignments.

Space Symmetry Structure. MORPHOCODE. Grasshopper » VITRUALITY. In this session we will be looking at some more advanced components and methods of using grasshopper, principally focussing on Galapagos, Grasshopper’s built-in genetic algrithm solver.

Grasshopper » VITRUALITY

Along the way, we’ll also be examining Grasshopper’s metaball component and means of flow control – the Grasshopper equivalent of ‘if statements’ in coding. Example 7: Galapagos Galapagos is best used to solve problems to which the optimal solution is not immediately obvious. In this example the problem which we are going to try and solve is to examine a field of points and attempt to enclose as many of those points as possible within a closed curve of a fixed maximum length. If you want a physical analog – imagine that each point is a pin and we have a loop of string that we want to fit around as many as we can. The first step is to obtain our set of points – you can either use the one in the example file provided or create your own using the Points command and clicking lots. Metaballs Galapagos Max. 1. DesignReform. Costa Minimal Surface. Force Density (Using the Mesh Vertex Repel command) Grasshopper Definition This definition calls on the ggForceDensity Relax functionality to compute a minimal surface discovered by Costa.

Costa Minimal Surface

This command doesn't compute minimal surfaces for all mesh, but at least seems to give a reasonable impression for Costa Minimal Surface. This is a quick demonstration of it.Grasshopper DefinitionRhino Model with input points Note, that unless you have a quick computer (or a lot of patience), it's probably worth disconnecting at the Mesh component (or disabling) and previewing the surface if you wish to adjust the sliders for variations. Arc Poly Curve Extrusion boundary Minimal Surface Grasshopper Definition There is also capability to restrain mesh vertex to nominated points, curves and surfaces.

Clusterizer This definition groups indexes of connected points into separate clusters. It requires Sandbox & Anemone plugins. Spirograph This definition simulates a spirograph tool. Design Like Nature : Time Compression.
