Grasshopper plug-in developer joins Proving Ground

Grasshopper plug-in developer David Stasiuk is joining Proving Ground as Director of Applied Research.

David has actively contributed to the computational design world with several significant tools and plug-ins. His most recent tool, Cocoon, adds advanced mesh creation and refinement capabilities to Grasshopper.

David has extensive experience in applying data-driven workflows and cutting-edge technology in research and practice. As part of his PhD research at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, David explored a wide range of topics, including parametric workflows, advanced geometry, interoperability, fabrication, and complex material assemblies.

In his work as a specialty consultant at Method Design he developed 3D structural connection models for 1050 unique stone panels in the Louisiana State Museum and Sports Hall of Fame designed by Trahan Architects.

Nathan Miller, Founder and Managing Director of the Proving Ground, adds, “I have known Dave for several years and have been eager to collaborate with him. I couldn’t be happier to have him on board in these early days of Proving Ground. A data-driven building industry requires the unique combination of practical experience and innovative thinking. Dave brings all that and more to the table. I look forward to working with him to develop new solutions for our clients and the building industry!”
