“Generative tools for bioclimatic architecture” // Collaboration with Hogeschool Rotterdam
To develop a parametric tool between Grasshopper and Ecotect, this will create & modify the geometries of a builing. Bidirectional integration between Grasshopper & Ecotect, based on enviromental data.
To understand the generative design philosophy & oriented objects programming (OOP )
Tu understand Grasshopper logic.
To develop one generative tool for building design that contains parameters for sustainability.
Minimum 5 people, Maximum 16 people
Workshop duration: 25 hrs
Architects, industrial designers, urbanists, interior designers, environmental engineers.
Monday 21 may: 10 - 15 hrs
1) The theoretical explanation of OOP & generative design, come together through this design project.
2) Technical explanation of Grasshopper
3) Conceptual development of the project, based in a mind-map and divided into: Actors, processes & relations
Tuesday 22 & wednesday 23 may: 10 - 15 hrs
4) Development of a Generative Tool in Grasshopper
Thursday 24 may: 10 - 15 hrs

It is not necesary to have prior knowledge of Ecotect ,Grasshopper or Rhino. To realize the course, the student will work with their own laptops, it is necesary to have the software pre-installed before the class starts.
Grasshopper definitions library
Tutorials: Rhinoceros + grasshopper + Ecotect + Geco
Free consulting in skype & team viewer (2 + 2hrs)
University Students: 550€ + 19% tax
Profesionals: 750€ + 19% tax
If you pay one week (7 days) before the begining of the course, the total cost will be reduced by 10%.
