Kangaroo Vertices

In this grasshopper kangaroo example file, you can design a parametric tensile structure with Kangaroo 2 and then use the Leopard Plugin to have more control over the anchor points.

Surface Bumps

In this Grasshoper Lunchbox example file, you can create a 3d bump pattern on a Nurbs surface.

Optimize Nesting

in this grasshopper OpenNest example file, you can put every two peices of sections side to side to reduce the cutting length and optimize it.

Grasshopper Kangaroo (Attractor Pattern)

Attractor Pattern

In this Grasshopper Kangaroo example file, you can generate 3d Patterns on a surface by defining point attractors.

Gyroid Shell

In this Grasshoper script, you can use the Axolotl plugin to create a parametric gyroid shell.

In this Grasshopper Minmash animation file, we have rotated a series of circles around a point and each circle has been shattered and colorized randomly.

Rhino Grasshopper (Parametric Building)

Parametric Building

In this grasshopper example file you can design a parametric rotating building by creating a series of polygons.

Discrete Lines

In this Grasshopper example file You can use the native grasshopper components combined with the Pufferfish plugin to create a series of discrete lines.

Digital Architecture

This essay by Patrik Schumacher, refers to the use of computational design processes and their manifest effect on the architectural outcome, rendered or built.

Wormhole Library

Wormhole Library

This project by Chinese architecture studio ‚ÄúMAD‚ÄĚ, has designed a library in the city of Haikou, China, that is intended “to be a wormhole that transcends time and space”.

Mesh Noise Carving

In this Grasshopper example file you can create a Noise-based parametric mesh sphere using the Nursery plugin.

pinch and spread panel

pinch and spread panel

In this grasshopper example file, you can pinch & spread a series of curves based on random locations. By deforming the curves you can finally model a parametric 2D panel.
