Grasshopper Workshop for Professionals [IPD]

Introduction to Parametric design Workshop

DATE:

SESSION -1 15- August
SESSION -2 22- August
SESSION -3 29- August
SESSION -4 05- September
SESSION -5 12- September

LOCATION:

76 eskaan rabaa el estesmary, App. 1 [Map Link]

INSTRUCTED BY:

Ayman Wagdy Mohamed Ibrahim

Research Associate – Sustainable Research Group | The American University in Cairo

M.Sc. Architecture – Architecture and Building Technology | Politecnico Di Milano

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.

Program Outline:

DAY 1:
-Introduction to Parametric Design -Introduction to Grasshopper & Rhino (technical tools).

DAY 2:
-Exploring the parametric workflow. -Setup the design algorithm & generating a list of data.

DAY 3:
-Introducing the new ways of generating parametric curves and surfaces.
-Parametric form generation in-dept

DAY 4:
-Introducing Data Tree logic and parametric transformations.
-Creating Associative techniques – Attractors (points, curves and vectors).

DAY 5:
-Working with advanced form generation with dynamic pattern.
-Parametric optimization based on environmental analysis -featuring the Performance-Driven Design possibilities.

Grasshopper Workshop For Professionals 101

DATE:

SESSION -1 28-Sep
SESSION -2 5-Oct
SESSION -3 12-Oct
SESSION -4 19-Oct
SESSION -5 26-Oct

LOCATION:

“Megawra”17 Amin Zaki St. Ard el-Golf, Cairo, Egypt.

INSTRUCTED BY:

Author of “New parametric workflow based on validated day-lighting simulation”

M.Sc. Architecture – Architecture and Building Technology| Politecnico Di Milano

PROGRAM OF THE WORKSHOP:

Session 1. We will know about GH and parametric Architecture and why it’s important for us to know it, by comparing it with different 3D applications .  Then We will learn how to install GH for Rhino and how to setup the view port options to maximize our efficiency. After that we will have an overview of GH interface and how to start a project and save a project.We will learn how to set up different ways of inputs specially for Cad & 3DSMax users ! How to import and export your current projects.

Session 2. We will know more about GH components (DATA & OPERATIONAL components) and the basics logic of GH. Then we will start dealing with mathematics inside GH and we will understand the different ways of generation numbers and sequences , then we will explorer the Boolean logics and different filters, then we will see some examples of using these logics.

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.
