Parametric Modelling in Grasshopper

Parametric modelling, as a means to design and explore complex in design has become an essential tool in contemporary design practices. Nevertheless, due to its relative young age, there are still many practicing design professionals who have not had the opportunity to receive formal training on this technique.

Parametric Modeling in Grasshopper 

Parametric modelling, as a means to design and explore complex in design has become an essential tool in contemporary design practices. Nevertheless, due to its relative young age, there are still many practicing design professionals who have not had the opportunity to receive formal training on this technique.

This program, building on our foundational Certified Training for Rhinoceros Level 1 and 2 short courses, will be an intermediate level training to provide the comprehensive knowledge and technique required for parametric modeling. 

Programme Objectives

This programme aims to introduce the fundamental concepts and essential skill-building workflows for students to effectively use Grasshopper in Rhinoceros to generate algorithmic 3D model for parametric design.

Programme Intended Learning Outcomes​

On completion of the programme, students should be able to

  • Interpret the fundamental concepts and theoretical knowledge of parametric modelling;

  •  Summarize the workflow of Grasshopper in Rhinoceros;

  • Explain the fundamentals of data matching in Grasshopper;

  • Organize, manipulate and manage complex data in Grasshopper;

  • Troubleshoot and resolve problems in the process of parametric modelling with autonomy;

  • Produce complex parametric models.

  • Be introduced with Kagaroo Physics Engine for Form finding.

  • Be introduced with Interpobility with Grasshopper and BIM (Revit)

 

INSTRUCTOR

Authorized Rhino 3D Trainer, McNeel Asia

 

Our Head Instructor was trained in the U.K. under a founding member of the Archigram. After working in the private and public sectors he joined the Architectural Studies subject group in 2008 as program manager and tutor for the top-up degree and higher diploma for one of the leading Higher Education Institution in Hong Kong. He is also committed to the training of computational design in architecture, product, jewelry and industrial design.

 

In 2015 he introduced the first Authorized Rhino Training Centre and Authorized Private Training in Hong Kong to offer official training in Rhinoceros and, subsequently, the first Grasshopper Certificate course delivered to the public. In parallel to teaching the Architectural students, he also enjoys the pedagogy of students from diverse design backgrounds and brands. Cross boundary blend of students stretching from architects of P&T, L&O and designers of Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Samsonite and Pandora, Luxottica Eyewear etc. denotes the boundlessness of design and provide impulse for him in continuing to explore new possibilities in [shifting] design paradigm and methodology.

 

He was honored with and modestly received the Outstanding Teacher Award in 2020 by the School.
