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 Modules - Proxy Wiki From Phylogenesis, FOA 2003 The following Grasshopper modules were created in consultation with FOA's Phylogenesis, in particular the taxonomy of forms found at the conclusion of the book. 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. You should have this handy for reference. Helpful Modules Fabrication » Parametric Modeling Grasshopper: Parametric TrussThis module covers the basic parametric properties of curves and most common methods for evaluating and dividing curves, while applying these concepts to build a parametric truss. 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.

Organicités Piraeus Tower The cladding of the facade of Soho Shangdu building is made with two main materials: glass panels and metal panels. The glass can be either transparent or opaque. These elements are used both for the towers and the lower base of the building. Tutorials Introduction to Grasshopper Videos by David Rutten. Wondering how to get started with Grasshopper? Look no further. Spend an some time with the creator of Grasshopper, David Rutten, to learn the fundamental of Grasshopper. No experience necessary.

Rhino ++ Grasshopper – Plethora Project is an initiative to accelerate computational literacy in the frame of architecture and design. It aligns with the "show me your screens" motto of the TopLap live-coding group attempting to get rid of Obscurantism in digital design. Directed by Jose Sanchez Contact me at : Bio: Jose Sanchez is an Architect / Programmer / Game Designer based in Los Angeles, California. He is partner at Bloom Games, start-up built upon the BLOOM project, winner of the WONDER SERIES hosted by the City of London for the London 2012 Olympics.

supermanoeuvre ReVault is a project that implements a new methodology for the design, fabrication, and construction of unreinforced thin-shell stone vaulting through the use of algorithmic form-finding techniques and multi-axis robotic water jet cutting. 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 intent of the research is to reignite and reanimate unreinforced compressive masonry vaulting as a contemporary building practice and to expand its application through the addition of formally-driven 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.

Process Photocell + 8×8 LED Matrix This is an example of using 2 photocells and a variable resistor as analog inputs to control 8×8 LED Matrix with PIC18F452, UDN2981, and ULN2803. The input values of the two photocells are compared. When the values are the same, LED lights up randomly within the entire board. Depending on how much darker a photocell is compared to the other, LED lights up within the range that is more focused towards a corner. The variable resistor controls how fast the LEDs blink.

Animate Sketching of a Parametric Truss Previous studies on the timer component were based on understanding it’s use. This time, I tried to implement it in a geometric design task. Moreover, manipulating timer component to change the regular animation of parameters. Time does not have to be equally divided sequences. Rather, new possibilities may be emerged with different time flows. A simple triangulation system is developed with a potential manipulation, based on a timer. 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.

Grasshopper This component implements a mixed approach to creating curves of constant width for regular polygons of odd segment count. This series of components access the sun system in Rhino and allow for control and returning of sun parameters. These two components allow for two means of list organization.

TUTORIALS A lot of people have been asking me how I create my renderings. Since I am finished with grad school, I decided to develop some tutorials that explain techniques I used throughout architecture school. Many of the techniques only require Sketchup and Photoshop.
