Hello everyone (nice to be back on the GHForums :))!
I am having… not so much of a Grasshopper problem, but rather a call for help in a research project that I have been doing within the Honours Programme of my university (3rd year TU Delft Architecture).
The thing is this: for said project, I have been researching the benefits (and drawbacks) of using textual programming (as opposed to visual, i.e. Grasshopper and such) within an architecture design environment. Apart from just satisfying my personal curiosity, one of the purposes of this project is to provide future Architecture students of my faculty with a convenient list of sorts for considering if they want to get into e.g. using Python components in Grasshopper.
My research up until now has comprised of looking up appropriate literature, as well as myself trying (and partially succeeding) to achieve a self-imposed design brief in Grasshopper with nearly only Python components, and the results have been massively interesting!
However, as a last part of the process I very much want to incorporate a "real" perspective, i.e. actually interviewing architects who have used visual and textual programming within their design processes and that way getting that look into what is actually practical in an architectural design context.
This is where the reason for this post comes in: as I know there are a lot of architects on this forum, I was hoping to find someone who (a) uses (apart from Grasshopper, of course) any sort of textual programming within their architectural design process (this can be Python/C#/VB.net components within Grasshopper but also e.g. niche IDEs like VisualScheme) and (b) is willing to have a call (using Skype or whatever) on a relatively short notice (ideally within the next week or so) where I ask some interview questions and we can hopefully just have a casual chat about this topic.
I am really looking forward to hopefully getting some response! (^▽^)
(Or if no one is available I might eventually change the format to just posting a few questions in here that people can answer using replys to this post :])
Thank you so much in advance,
