MODE LAB: INTRO TO PARAMETRIC DESIGN WITH GRASSHOPPER

About this Workshop
Combining the intuition of visual programming with the robustness of parametric design, Grasshopper offers unprecedented fluidity for the design process. This workshop will focus on the underlying concepts and mechanisms for creating performance-based parametric systems. With an emphasis on professional practice, this class will provide participants with a framework through which to better understand relevant applications of parametric design. Learn the fundamentals of parametric design with Grasshopper for Rhino3D.

Audience
Interior designers, architects, designers, and anyone interested in learning how to create parametric design models using Grasshopper for Rhino3D

Takeaways:
What is Parametric Design and when is it useful?
What’s an Algorithm and How can I use one to Explore my Ideas?
Using Grasshopper in my Creative Process.

Instructors
Ronnie Parsons + Gil Akos | Mode Lab

Software
If you would like to follow along with the delivered content, please bring a laptop with the following software installed:

Rhino 5.0 – Evaluation or SR3
If you haven’t already done so, please download the free trial-version of Rhino 5.0 (if you already purchased a licensed version, you can skip this). There are two versions (64-bit and 32-bit) but you are encouraged to use the 64-bit version if your system will support it.
Please make sure your copy of Rhino is using the latest service release (SR3) which can be downloaded here (http://blog.rhino3d.com/2013/04/rhino-5-sr3-released.html)

Grasshopper 0.9.0056
This is the latest version of Grasshopper. Note: this version will only work on Rhino 5.0 SR3. If you are upgrading from version 0.9.0014, you are encouraged to read this thread on the changes to the latest version (http://www.grasshopper3d.com/forum/topics/grasshopper-0-9-0051-available-for-download).
