InFORMed Geometries is a 4-days (28h) introduction to the tools and methods of algorithmic modeling with Grasshopper. The aim of the course is to give the participants the theoretical and technical knowledge useful to start exploring the world of contemporary parametric design methodologies.
Starting with a review of NURBs modeling in Rhinoceros, the course will introduce the main features of Grasshopper, a plug-in for algorithmic and associative modeling within the Rhino environment. After an overview of the structure and the possibilities of this tool, the students will be guided in the exploration of different parametric design themes, such as attractors, surfaces discretization, components population and digital fabrication methods.
The course will end with an individual exercise, where every student will be able to tackle a topic of his/her own interested, always supported by the workshop tutors. The final results will be exhibited in the gallery space of Urban Spree at the end of the workshop.
