Parametric Modeling is a powerful tool in the architectural and urban design process. By creating models, that do not only represent the geometry but rather relationships between the geometrical elements it becomes possible to create numerous variations of a design concept. These design variants can be analysed and optimized for certain criteria. Thereby the designer gains a deeper insight into his/her design concept.
In this seminar you will learn the basics for parametric modeling using the visual programming software Grasshopper for Rhino. After this basic training you apply the methods to an own design concept (architectural or urban scale). For the course no prior knowledge is required.
