COURSE DESCRIPTION

This workshop will take participants through an intensive series of explorations using Grasshopper to create a highly complex facade system for a skyscraper. The curriculum will build on existing case studies that will serve to elucidate major constraints for systematically defining parametric facades. Topics such as skeletal modeling, data tree structures, data abstraction, clustering and performance analysis will be covered and synthesized to highlight the potential of parametric holistic design thinking. Furthermore, each major system in the design will be taken to a high level of detail allowing designers to customize user defined features specific to their performance analysis. The workflows introduced in this workshop are meant to prepare participants with applicable knowledge in parametric methodologies that can be applied to various design problems.
