core.form-ula: Craft Series August 2010

The goal of the workshop is to understand methods of translating geometry from Rhino/Grasshopper into Ecotect, and specifically, the process of shaping geometry that performs optimally within a specific location on earth. The workshop will begin by covering intro + advanced grasshopper techniques, followed by an introduction to using Ecotect to produce solar radiation studies, day-lighting studies, shadow analysis studies, climate analysis studies, and computational fluid dynamics analysis studies. The last stage of the workshop will cover the process of manipulating geometry in grasshopper via analysis/values obtained from Ecotect.

All levels are welcomed (students & professionals), the only requirement is knowledge of Rhino. At the end of the workshop, each participate will be asked to produce a 12in x 12in x 12in physical model along with flat art to be displayed at the de Castallane Galley for public viewing.
