Workshop Aim:

The objective of this workshop is to introduce participants to the Fundamental Concepts and Essential Skills necessary for effectively designing with Grasshopper for Rhinoceros. In 5 days, the participants will focus on the key advantages of Grasshopper’s capabilities through a range of design challenges in order to aid designers in both their drafting tasks and modelling capabilities.

The workshop covers many concepts such as Object Attributes/Parameters, Data Types, Data Structures, and Designing with Algorithms. Specifically, this course will focus on understanding both Lists and Data Trees, as well as the best practices for integrating Grasshopper into your Professional Design Workflow. The workshop offers guided curriculum and continuous support, based on in-depth and professional learning experiences.

Workshop outcomes:
Teach the participants how to:-

+ be proficient in parametric logics learning the key benefits of parametric techniques in architecture design workflow (when to use it & how to use it)
+ Correctly communicate with different 3D and BIM packages in order to keep the geometry clean and light while preserving all NURBS information.
+ Develop architecture design based on mathematical equations to create non-standard free form building skin.
+ Create a pattern that changes dynamically based on specific inputs which can be applied over the building façade, interior walls or ceiling or even floor pattern.
+ Automate and Optimize design variables to achieve the optimum solution for the design problem.

Session 3. At this point we should be ready to know more details about different types of components inside GH mainly about Curves and Surfaces. how to make them ,how to evaluate any curve and why we need to use different component do different function or operation

Then we should touch the world of vectors how to compose them and to do mathematical operations over vectors , why we need them to move or to make any transformation to any object , then we will learn more about deformation and paneling techniques.

Session 4. Here we will understand the concept behind all grasshopper operation by understanding the Data Tree concept and it’s applications ,which will help us to develop more complex results

Session 5. After gaining the needed knowledge we will be ready to deal with advanced patterns and using attractors as design elements , and we will see some useful examples of this technique specially with Façade design.

Session 6. We will learn about optimization process and how to define the fitness function, then We will explore some advanced concepts and form Finding techniques.

Finally we can make an open discussion to have a final review ,then small presentation of the course ending.

PROGRAM OF THE COURSES:

* The more details will be added soon.

Level 1:

This level will begin with introduction about parametric design and it will show you how it is useful to make your design parametric rather than using conventional cad methods. You will learn how to deal with grasshopper and rhino interfaces, exploring how is the data flows through different components. Then you will learn how to use different geometrical components such as NURBS curves and surfaces for developing new design projects.

Level 2:

This level will continue what we began on Level 1. This level will make you understand how to control a bigger list of data, how to define attractors and creating dynamic patterns. You will learn how to analyze your design using algorithms in order to define the correct relations between design elements. You will learn as well the different conditional logics that we can use for designing a responsive elements and special paneling techniques.

Level 3:

This level will deal with controlling Data Tree and how to optimize the design solution based on a special criteria in order to get the best possible solution.You will learn how to connect Environmental analysis software “Ecotect” with (GECO) Plug-in for Grasshopper. We will explore different solutions using different logics where you will gain special expertise to handle any further development on your script. The final part will be dedicated to some fabrication aspects.

DURATION: 

One day for each level. Specific timing will available soon.

PREREQUISITES:

You need to reset your mind, prepare yourself to receive a new Knowledge. No need of any specific knowledge of Rhinoceros or Grasshopper.

LANGUAGE:
