May 23 - 31, from 5:30pm to 9:30pm V Business Center, University Branch
Queen Rania St, Tawfeeq Complex-5th Floor
The aim of this workshop is to introduce participants to the world of parametric design using Rhinoceros and Grasshopper and to model a number of vertical variations.
Vertical Variables V1.0 will focus on the applications of parametric modeling in the form of towers and skyscrapers. The participants will be guided towards developing skills on computational design and parametric strategies which lead to form finding and optimization through various parameters. Building morphology will be driven from local site conditions and social behaviors. The computational approach enables designers and architects to overcome the imposition of a prefixed form to enhance performance-driven designs. Lectures on current mainstream and academic research, software tutorials, and fabrication prototyping will be integrated into the workshop. Through parametric algorithms, participants will discover the benefits of variable connected systems to create mass customized mass processes by building element relationships.
