GRASSHOPPER Intensive Workshop
University of Oregon (UO) Summer in the City
Portland : Aug 12-14, 2010, 9:00am-4:50pm

The main focus of the seminar will be McNeel’s Grasshopper plug-in for Rhinnoceros 4.  Described as a ‘generative modeling for Rhino,’ Grasshopper is a parametric design environment suited for designing relationships versus explicit objects or forms. While Grasshopper is considered a graphical algorithm editor, it requires no knowledge of programming or scripting, but enables designers to generate and control complex forms. Learn basic functionality of this vast interface; the workshop will look at ways to construct logics which take advantage of diverse data sources, algorithms, geometry, and manufacturing processes.  Instruction will conducted at beginner / intermediate level. Instructed by LaN CarloMaria Ciampoli & Monika Wittig
