Help Needed: Rhino Grasshopper Script for Gradually Fading Brick Facade

Hey everyone,

I’m currently working on a project where I need to design a building facade made of bricks using Rhino Grasshopper. The challenge I’m facing is creating a script that allows the bricks to gradually get smaller as they move upwards, eventually fading into a seamless facade.

Here’s what I’m aiming for:

  • The facade should start with regular-sized bricks at the bottom.
  • As the facade progresses upwards, the bricks should decrease in size gradually.
  • Towards the top, the bricks should become so small that they seamlessly blend into one another, creating a smooth transition.

I’ve been experimenting with different approaches in Grasshopper, but I’m struggling to achieve the desired effect. If anyone has experience with similar projects or knows of any resources/tutorials that could help me out, I would greatly appreciate it.

Specifically, I’m looking for guidance on how to manipulate the brick sizes based on their position on the facade and how to ensure a smooth transition from larger to smaller bricks.

Any advice, tips, or even sample scripts would be incredibly valuable to me at this stage. Thank you in advance for your assistance!


please post the point you are at as a gh file :+1:

ofcourse not that small my bad,
attached is a picture as an example, and the grasshopper file i reached but its not exactly doing what i want. (15.9 KB)

While you were sending the image, I was sketching out what I had gleaned from your question,
and I think I came close.

in theory, starting from one brick (the larger one) and based on the height of the wall, find the correct ratio of how many divisions you need to finish the job with the smaller brick.

here’s the suggestion for the reduction part of your scrip
simpified_re[with sqrt sqrt fibo reduction].gh (21.7 KB)
