Generative Design is a comprehensive course for architects, engineers, and urban designers teaching practical automation workflows based on parametric modeling, scripting, simulation, and optimization. Participants will gain hands-on experience with a variety of technologies and techniques involved with the Generative Design approach, including computational design, scripting, simulation, optimization, and data visualization.
For modeling and simulation we will rely on Grasshopper, a visual programming interface for the 3d modelling software Rhino. We will also use several 3rd party plugins developed for Grasshopper including Karamba3d, Kangaroo, and Human. For optimization and visualization we will use Discover, an open source optimization app developed by Colidescope. Although there are no pre-requisites for the course, basic familiarity with Rhino and Grasshopper is recommended.
