Parametric Design Secrets (PDS) [INTENSIVE]
Grasshopper Workshop For Professionals & Undergraduates



The objective of this workshop is to introduce participants to the Fundamental Concepts and Essential Skills necessary for effectively creating parametric designs with Grasshopper . In 6 INTENSIVE days, the participants will focus on advanced techniques in order to get the most advantages of Grasshopper’s capabilities. This will happen through tackling a range of design challenges in order to aid you in both your repetitive drafting tasks and modeling capabilities.

The workshop covers many concepts such as Advanced Object Attributes/Parameters, Data Types management, Data Structures, and Designing with Algorithms. in addition, this course focuses on both PARAMETRIC CURVEs & SURFACES MODELING coupled with 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 my 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:
– Introducing Parametric Design logics and examples
– Start working with Grasshopper & Rhino (interface and primary logics).

DAY 2:
– Exploring the parametric workflow.
– Setup the design algorithm & generating a list of data.
– Introducing Data trees [Graft & Flatten]
– Creating forms using mathematical equations.

DAY 3&4:
– Exploring new ways for generating parametric curves and surfaces.
– Parametric form generation in-depth using all curves types.
– Paneling techniques using different strategies

DAY 5:
– Introducing Data Tree logic and parametric transformations.
– Creating Associative techniques – Attractors (points, curves and vectors).
– Advanced transformations and logical operations

DAY 6:
– Working with advanced form generation with dynamic pattern.
– finishing
– Parametric optimization based on environmental analysis -featuring the Performance-Driven Design possibilities
