Making use of Grasshopper uto developed an interface named GECO, which offers a direct link between Rhino/Grasshopper models and Ecotect. The Plugin allows you to export complex geometries very quickly and evaluate your design in Ecotect.

Performative Morphology in Architecture

Performative Morphology

The first part of this paper by Achim Menges focuses on the explanation of the theoretical framework of ICD’s approach to design computation, which finds its conceptual roots in the integrative processes of biological becoming.

Awaken 1 (Interactive Kinetic Art Installation)


Awakened 1 by Breakfast is made up of 168 Brixels (a mechanical medium BREAKFAST created), each with a mirrored and black side. The piece is an exploration of human interaction with a robotic medium.

Morph to Twisted Box Grasshopper3d Definition

Morph to Twisted Box

In this grasshopper definition you can create a geometry and morph it on a sphere. You can also join the meshes together. This definition is using these plugins : Pufferfish , Mesh + and Weaverbird.

Parakeet Plugin Grasshopper3d Definition

Parakeet Plugin #8

In this grasshopper definition by using the Parakeet Plugin you can model a radial scissor mechanism by defining the number of elements , width , size and also the radius of the holes which connect the elements together.

A Methodology of Interactive Motion Facades Design through Parametric Strategies

Interactive Facades

This research by David Stephen Panya, Taehoon Kim and Seungyeon Choo aims to analyze the motion aspect of interactive facades design and simplify the conceptual and performance design process through parametric strategies.

Aguahoja Programmable Biocomposites for Digital Fabrication


Neri Oxman and MIT have developed programmable water-based biocomposites for digital design and fabrication. Named Aguahoja, the project has exhibited both a pavilion and a series of artifacts constructed from molecular components.

Noise4d Example Grasshopper3d Definition

Noise4d Example #1

In this grasshopper definition, you can create a set of polygons in the Z direction and scale them by using the noise components from Noise 4d plugin. You can also thicken the polygons with Fatten.

Crystallon Grasshopper3d Plugin


Crystallon by aporterfield is an open source project for creating lattice structures using Rhino and Grasshopper3D. Each tool is left as a cluster which can be opened and modified at will, in the spirit of open source.

Environmentally Responsive Textiles for Architecture

Responsive Textiles

This paper by Jane Scott describes the framework behind the development of a series of knitted prototypes inspired by the biomimetic model of the hygromorph. Three moisture responsive pieces are described which use properties of wood veneer.

3D printed focus lamps

Focus Lamps

Cozi studio debuts with textural 3D printed focus lamps. Selective laser sintering is an additive 3D printing process that uses a high-power laser to sinter powdered material — typically plastic or metal — into a three-dimensional form.

Compliant Laminar Assemblies

Laminar Assemblies

This paper by Pamela Dychengbeng Chua and Lee Fu Hui presents an innovative approach to the design and fabrication of three-dimensional objects from single-piece flat sheets, inspired by the origami technique of twist-closing.

3D Wall Pattern Grasshopper3d Definition

3D Wall Pattern #2

In this definition you can model a parametric 3D wall pattern based on scaling edges of a rectangle grid and also moving the center of these edges.

Swarm Noise Grasshopper3d Definition

Swarm Noise

In this grasshopper definition by applying forces and noise, you can model a natural movement of particles. This definition is using Anemone and 4D Noise plugin.

Bandsawn Bands Feature-Based Design and Fabrication of Nested Freeform Surfaces in Wood

Bandsawn Bands

This article by Ryan Luke Johns and Nicholas Foley, illustrates a materially efficient technique for designing and fabricating freeform surfaces within the constraints of irregular wood flitches. The process utilizes a robotically operated bandsaw.
