This course is aimed to teach the basic principles of parametric design using the Grasshopper plugin for Rhino. You will learn the key features of a parametric design approach and how it benefits its application on your design tasks. We will also cover in depth how does Grasshopper works, its interface and how to manage and organize information on it.

On this course, we will also include basic concepts of computer science (programming), and the importance of these to start developing your algorithms. You'll learn how to identify the different parameters that compose a design and how to associate one to each other to build flexible systems with smart components.

This course is especially aimed at people who have no prior experience with parametric design or Grasshopper.

Take Aways:

  • Basic Understanding of computer science concepts.
  • Understanding Parametric Design main characteristics
  • How the Grasshopper Interface works
  • How information is organized and managed in Grasshopper
  • How to create parametric models
