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.

Grasshopper : Lists + Data MatchingThis module covers some of the basics about the Grasshopper interface, basic understanding of the logic of parametric design (inputs, outputs, and relation-based information flow), information management using data lists and looping, and applying these concepts by creating a responsive surface using an attractor point.

The techniques build upon traditional thin-shell masonry vaulting tectonics with a masonry system capable of self-support during construction. The methodology may also reduce the labor cost of vault construction, while expanding the application of thin-shell vaulting to irregular forms that may respond to external factors such as siting constraints and environmental criteria. The ReVault project was presented at the 2011 ACADIA Conference in Banff, Canada, the premier international conference on the impacts of technology on architecture.

BFXlog grasshopper « On April 3-4, I had the pleasure of co-teaching a computational design and fabrication workshop together with Gonçalo Castro Enriques (X-REF) at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto (FAUP), Portugal. The 2-day workshop, titled “Performative Morphologies“, was
