Flexible Design

Flexible Design

This research study by Waleed Hussein Ali Hussein focuses on parametric design as a leading global trend in many fields, including simulation, locomotion, industrial design and, most importantly, architecture and urbanism.

Visibility Analysis for 3D Urban Environments

Visibility Analysis

This paper by Anastasia Koltsova, Bige Tunçer and Gerhard Schmitt, presents a visibility analysis tool for 3D urban environments and its possible applications for urban design practice.

Sustainable Urbanism

Sustainable Urbanism

This study by Fay Al Khalifa investigates using a spatial installation project on the ability of fourth-year architecture students to understand and recall complex philosophical ideas related to architecture and urbanism.

Parametric Urbanism

Parametric Urbanism

This research by Mohamed Mostafa Ibrahim Mohamed Saleh explores the use of computers in the urban design process and the techniques and mechanisms of the computational approach to the environmental urban morphology.

Parametric Urban Patterns Exploring and integrating graph-based spatial properties in parametric urban modelling

Parametric Urban Patterns

This article by Martin Bielik, Sven Schneider and Reinhard König presents a graph-based spatial analysis toolset which authors have recently developed as an extension of the visual scripting language Grasshopper3D for Rhino.

Tangible Grasshopper A method to combine physical models with generative, parametric tools

Tangible Grasshopper

In this paper by Boris Plotnikov, Gerhard Schubert and Frank Petzold, A design platform has been developed which supports a seamless connection between freely shaped physical models, GIS data and Grasshopper3D. 

Urban Classification Grasshopper3d Definition Lunchbox Plugin

Urban Classification

In this grasshopper definition by training a neural network using boundary curves (representing a function in an urban scale) you can use it to recognize the function of any given closed curve.

Parametric Urban Morphology

Parametric Urban Morphology

This research by Yingyi Zhang aims to create a parametric modelling system to aid urban regulation. The system offers a visualised coding interface to manipulate parameters and achieve interactive performance feedback at the early stage of urban regulation.

Parametric Landscape Urbanism

Parametric Urbanism

This thesis by Sadik Deniz Akman discusses the emerging approaches in landscape urbanism from a methodological perspective and discusses the emerging techniques applied in the recent design and research projects in landscape urbanism. The study mainly focuses on design tools and techniques applied in the field.
