Exuberance: New Virtuosity in Contemporary Architecture: Architectural Design (9780470717141): Marjan Colletti 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. This 13 part series covers topics that will help you build a foundational understanding of Grasshopper. Dario Donato director di SpatialConnection(s), incubatore di ricerca per una creatività matematica, ha il piacere di annunciare il libro: Contaminazioni creative digitali – Trascrizioni di una complessità algoritmica attraverso Rhino.Grasshopper Transcripts of a complexity algorithmic through Rhino and Grasshopper. If you’re looking for a nice collection of Grasshopper tutorials then jump over to Designalyze Here are a series of beginner and advanced tutorials from our friends at Studio Mode... This tutorial series was developed for the Design Studio AIR at the University of Melbourne, Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning.

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.

Patrick Shumacher on Parametricism Patrik Schumacher is a partner at Zaha Hadid Architects. He is an accomplished architect and educator having influenced and entire generation of avant garde architectural practitioners. In 2008 he published the Parametric Manifesto, wherein he argued parametric architecture will have an equal affect on the future of design in the field comparable to modernism itself. From his lectures sprung his publication: Autopsies of Architecture. Some images of Patrik’s contributions to Zaha Hadid Architects: Co-de-iT | Computational Design Italy maxscript Morphing, is the technique where a transition between two images is achieved seamlessly. The technique was (of course) developed initially for cinematographic purposes. As we read on, the first time it was used extensively was in the movie the willow, in 1988. One of the most impressive early movie examples was in Terminator 2: the judgment day. There the T-1000 cyborg terminator was equipped with the ability to morph into any kind of object (it was actually supposed to be made out of a morphing metal); the running time of the morphing scenes are counting up to 16mins (again according to The base concept behind 3D morphing however, while applied extensively in computer animation, is not that new. When coming to initial contemporary practices in 'digital' architecture, morphing had a critical role. And this is the point where topology becomes a very useful concept in architecture today, and morphing a very useful tool that helps to study that concept.

grasshopper code . a collection of codes & grammars for Grasshopper, a generative modeling tool for Rhinoceros. 3D Hilbert Curve This definition generates a 3D Hilbert Curve, a continuous fractal space-filling curve. nGon mesh tessellation Starting from a closed surface it builds a nGon mesh tessellation Curves Sorter Starting from a list of curves it takes the first one then it looks for the closest curve and it eventually flips the direction to optimize the toolpath lenght. froGH A sparse collection of tools for Grasshopper. See the code, explanation and download here. Clusterizer This definition groups indexes of connected points into separate clusters. Spirograph This definition simulates a spirograph tool. 3D Differential mesh relaxation This definition explores the 3D relaxation of a mesh effected by an image gradient. Vorospace Math surfaces .

Le Courrier de l'Architecte | Programme de mcnat artistique ddi l'impression en trois dimensions lance, jusqu'au 30 juin 2011, un programme de mécénat à destination des artistes, designers et architectes désireux d’expérimenter l’impression en trois dimensions. L’entreprise met à disposition gratuitement ses machines de prototypage rapide tout en accompagnant techniquement l’ensemble des projets sélectionnés. L’impression 3D, c’est cette technique qui permet de réaliser des objets à partir d’un fichier 3D (presque) aussi facilement qu’on imprime un document. Un cabinet d’architectes pourra par exemple imprimer directement ses maquettes en trois dimensions, gagnant ainsi du temps dans la réalisation de ses travaux, mais surtout une exceptionnelle qualité de précision pour ses présentations. Les équipes d’ vont accompagner les artistes sélectionnés tout au long de leur projet en leur offrant un suivi technique pointu et des conseils pour la conception des prototypes et objets à imprimer. A qui s’adresse ce programme ? Voir tous les concours

In doing so, I hope to engage each and every one of you--students, staff, alumni, faculty, university colleagues, overseers, trustees, and friends--in achieving our extraordinary potential. We are a community of scholars and professionals who together can illustrate and communicate that design--encompassing the fine arts, historic preservation, urban and regional planning, urban design, landscape architecture, and architecture--can create value and make a difference in the lives of people in communities large and small, growing and shrinking, advantaged and disadvantaged, around the world. Goal 1: Advance our visibility and influence through thought leadership, international engagement, and strategic communications. - Thought leadership. Goal 3: Build the faculty of the future.
