Grasshopper workshop in Beirut by Luis Fraguada

Applied Parametric Design with Rhino and Grasshopper


The workshop on Applied Parametric Design serves as an introduction and immersion into the world of associative design with McNeel’s Rhinoceros and Grasshopper software. Rhinoceros is an advanced Nurbs modeller where we will learn about precision modelling, project workflow and organization. Grasshopper is an associative modelling plugin for Rhinoceros that allows us to parametrically define the logics of our model in order to explore variations and optimized solutions. These two tools are a powerful combination for any architect, designer, engineer, professional or student who is interested in exploring how parametric design can benefit their workflow.

This is the first workshop in a series of workshops conducted by Built by Associative Data in Beirut dealing with digital tools applied to architecture, engineering, and design.


Workshop participants should have a familiarity with CAD software, 2D drafting, and 3D modelling.
