This publication is an elaboration of exercises provided in Andrew Payne and Rajaa Issa’s Grasshopper Primer. In addition, lessons outlined in Algorithmic Modeling with Grasshopper by Zubin Khabazi, are referenced as well as scripts written during Professor Kyle Talbott’s Microcosm Studio.
‘Generative Algorithms’ by Zubin Khabazi which published on-line, was aimed to bring forward subjects and concepts on geometrical issues related to architectural design and some basic experiments using parametric modeling and algorithmic approach with Grasshopper.
The idea behind the ‘Generative Algorithms, Concepts and Experiments’ by Zubin Khabazi is to explore design and algorithmic solutions through experiments rather than pure geometrical/algorithmic subjects.
Master in parametric design introduces you to parametric design and digital manufacturing in the fields of Product Design, Architecture, Landscape, Digital Fabrication.
Grasshopper Learning Material by Woojae Sung explains the basic concepts of Grasshopper as a graphical algorithm editor. It works on real 2D/3D geometries with Rhino. And with Grasshopper, on the algorithm behind those real geometries.
PanelingTools helps designers create paneling solutions from concept to fabrication. PanelingTools facilitates conceptual and detailed design of paneling patterns using NURBS and mesh geometry. PanelingTools is closely integrated with the Rhinoceros environment using standard Rhino geometry.
The purpose of this tutorial by Ivo A. Semerdjiev is to create a folding origami skin based on parametric principles. The first step is to make a square grided surface based on one convex and concave curves. Their z-axis planars are aligned and then arrayed.
Algorithmic Architecture by Dr. Tony Kotnik discusses subjects like computational design and digital architecture. Recent theories of form in architecture have focused on computational methods of formal exploration and expression.
Introduction to Grasshopper for Rhinoceros by Maria Mingallon contains examples that explain Data Storage: Objects, Scalars, Data Trees, Vectors. Curves (NURBS): Definition & type of curves Curve Analysis (Curve Domain), Surfaces (NURBS): Definition & Surface Analysis Surface Domain & Evaluate Surface and Manipulation of Curves & Surfaces.
This is the third edition of the ‘Generative Algorithms’ by Zubin Khabazi which has been tried to be updated with most of the features in Grasshopper 0.8.0066. The book now has more to offer for those who like to learn designing with algorithms.
Main goal of this project by woo jae sung is to make successive bridge-like structures based on parametric idea. The first step is to make a single component that reacts to the user inputs. The second step is to replicate the single component to get multiple components which behave under the same logic.
This is the second edition of grasshopper primer by Andrew Payne and Rajaa Issa. Rajaa is a developer at Robert McNeel and Associates and is the author of several other Rhino plugins including ArchCut and the ever popular PanelingTools.
Essential Mathematics for Computational Design by Rajaa Issa introduces to design professionals the foundation mathematical concepts that are necessary for effective development of computational methods for 3D modeling and computer graphics. This is not meant to be a complete and comprehensive resource, but rather an overview of the basic and most commonly used concepts.
Seismic Design for Architects shows how structural requirements for seismic resistance can become an integral part of the design process. A non-mathematical approach focuses upon the principles and practice of seismic resistant design to enable readers to grasp the concepts and then readily apply them to their building designs.
Complete with international case studies, this book by Bradley Cantrell and Justine Holzman explores the various approaches taken to utilise responsive technologies in current professional practice. This will serve as a reference for professionals, and academics looking to push the boundaries of landscape projects and seek inspiration for their design proposals.
This book covers new materials and design methods, advances in computational design practices, innovations in building technologies and construction techniques, and the integration of research with design.
This book connects the different topics and professions involved in information technology approaches to architectural design, ranging from computer-aided design, building information modeling and programming to simulation, digital representation, augmented and virtual reality, digital fabrication and physical computation.
Designers are becoming more directly involved in the fabrication process from the earliest stages of design. This book showcases the design and research work by some of the leading designers, makers and thinkers today.
This book discusses analytical tools for designing energy efficient and lightweight structures that embody the concept of tensegrity. The book provides both static and dynamic analysis of special tensegrity structural concepts,
