REaction 1401 workshop Grasshopper and evolutionary solvers
March 14-16, 2014
Design in contemporary architecture focuses on being evolutionary, temporary, changeable, but above all adaptable and customizable to the socio- technological contexts and to people’s needs.
REACTION 1401 focus on understanding and controlling the logics of genetics and evolutionary algorithms. Those evolutionary solvers apply the principles of evolution found in nature to find an optimal solution to a problem. We will explore the potentials of those design techniques. Environmental and energetic data will be the main inputs of those processes that will drive our design choices towards flexible, progressive, interactive solutions.
The main plugins for Grasshopper that will be used are:
Heliotrope, Galapagos, Goat, Meshedit, Mesh+, Elk, gHowl.
