SESSION B: Integrated Parametric Delivery
Professor: Mark T Green
TA: Ryan Lovett
Emerging technologies in design have a time and a place to be implemented. Too often the tool controls the design. When utilized effectively, advanced parametric design methodologies will facilitate numerous iterations, enabling a more resolved final product in a time restricted setting.
Designers often favor one design tool over another, mainly out of familiarity. This workshop will insist on interoperability between various platforms, magnifying the strengths of each tool. We will investigate the process of integrating multiple parametric tools simultaneously into a single architectural project.
Quickly becoming the industry standard for BIM, Revit will be presented as the primary tool for hosting geometry. However, most form generation and parametric control will be driven by Rhino and Grasshopper.
We will also be implementing Tsplines into the process, as we have been granted an extended trial period specifically for this class. Both Revit and Rhino will be presented and utilized simultaneously to integrate multiple design platforms into the process parametrically.
