# Array Rectangle Within a Boundary

Hello all,

I am fairly new to grasshopper so bear with me

My goal is to create a series of area studies on a site. I have the site boundaries, a max buildable area, a maximum number of floors and a typical city block. I would like to be able to change the number of floors to see how many blocks are be needed on the site to meet the max area.

So far I have been able to figure out how to array the rectangle to meet the maximum area but I can’t seem to figure out how to create that array within the site boundaries AND still maintain the maximum number of blocks.

I have also been able to figure out how to array the blocks within the site boundaries, and somehow I can get it to meet the max building area (more or less) but the solution I found doesn’t allot me to change the number of floors.

Any ideas?

Thank You!

Hi!
Welcome to this forum!

If you have not already read this: How to ask effective questions , please do it.

Can you please attach your grasshopper definition?
Attach also the rhino file if needed or “internalize” (right-click on input parameters) the geometries needed for your problem.
It’s easier to help and to get help if geometries and gh definitions related to the problem are shared…

I’m italian, so my english is not much great…
Can you explain again? I can’t understand your request.

Hi!
I added the Rhino and Grasshopper file to my post.

Sorryy, my question is a little complicated…

I have a set site boundary (which is in the Rhino file attached) and I have a maximum area for the site (10,000,000 sqm.) I want to figure out how many buildings can fit on the site to reach that area but I want to do so according to the number of stories. For example, I would like to know how many 3 or 4 or 5 story buildings are needed to reach the 10,000,000 sqm area within the site boundaries.

The Grasshopper definitions I have don’t accomplish that. I am kinda new to grasshopper (I’ve only really been using it for a couple of months) so I’m not sure if there is a way to do this.

Thank you!
