Natural Patterns with Algorithms

-bio design | - online workshop | -English


Required Skills: Cell Biology, Rhino and Grasshopper Beginner

Required Software: Rhino 7, Grasshopper 1.0, Anemone, Lunchbox

Required Hardware: A PC with a slightly powerful CPU and GPU
Maximum number of participating students: 30

Patterns in Nature are visible regularities of form found in the natural world, these patterns recur in different contexts and can sometimes be modeled using algorithms. The workshop will focus mainly on creating algorithms that produce patterns observed in Nature. The classes will involve trying to replicate simple patterns observed in Nature via grasshopper, then gradually advances through the use of recursion to generate more complex patterns. Each class will involve a regular software tutorial and students will be asked to produce portfolio pages including drawings, diagrams, renders, as well as video captures of your parametric systems. These will be used as learning tools to help illustrate your progress. You will be asked to produce matrix drawings and models showing variations of your systems in relation to the parameters used.
