Master Parametric Design – XII Edition
September 21 - December 17, 2020
A unique study program in the world that introduces you to parametric design and digital manufacturing in product design, architecture, landscape, digital fabrication… through the creation of physical and digital parametric models using as main tools Grasshopper for Rhino and our CNC machines (Computer Numerical Control).
The course is divided into five groups with several units. The aim of every unit is that students can learn new parametric tools based on Grasshopper.
Group I – NURBS modelling (Rhino, Grasshopper)
Group II – Digital Fabrication (visits to outstanding parametric buildings)
Group III – Mesh modelling (Grasshopper for organic design, structural analysis and form-finding)
Group IV – Interoperability (Grasshopper and its connection with Arduino, sensors, data from the internet, Python…)
Group V – Thesis (individual work on the students’ main interests based on the previous units + V-Ray for rendering)
