GENERATIVE MORPHOLOGIES v2 is a workshop intended for architects, students of Architecture and Arts, professional designers and artists who would like to learn new techniques of design


GENERATIVE MORPHOLOGIES v2 is a workshop intended for architects, students of Architecture and Arts, professional designers and artists who would like to learn new techniques of design, production and presentation; to feel the workflow of some of the top ranked architectural universities.  It is an opportunity for professionals to join and exchange ideas with a team of world reputable tutors.

GENERATIVE MORPHOLOGIES v2 will focus on exploring the potential of parametrically driven generative processes and their combinations. By those processes we mean growth algorithms, production systems, physics and chemistry based reactions. While some of those notions may be known for decades, the usage of parametric software can ease merging and crossing between them, therefore enriching them with new possibilities. One of the main ideas behind the workshop is to collide emergent processes with deterministic systems and gain control over the final complex outcome of the algorithm, while maintaining its’ valuable qualities.

DETAILS

GENERATIVE MORPHOLOGIES v2 will use the Anemone plug-in as the main workflow driver. From the practical point of view, we will make sure to briefly cover the Grasshopper basics, dive deep into data tree concept, learn about simple scripting in GH, compare the usual GH workflow with looping paradigms (AnemoneHoopsnake andOctopus) and much more.
For attending the workshop there is no previous software experience required.

The goal is creating a project that each participant can proudly include in his portfolio using the state of the art programs and techniques.

The intensive coursesExtensive introduction to the iterative Grasshopper solutions” and the “3DS Max/V-Ray challenging course  are included in the GENERATIVE MORPHOLOGIES v2 workshop.

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

>>  Introduction in Rhino 3D, Grasshopper

>>  Introduction in Anemone, Hoopsnake, Octopus

>>  Strategies for 3D printing

>>  Rendering with V-Ray

>>  Discussions on project presentation

LOGISTIC

GENERATIVE MORPHOLOGIES v2 workshop will expand from 18 to 26 July 2015

Mateusz Zwierzycki / Poland / Pozna? University of Arts, Poland

Graduated from the Department of Architecture and Design of the Pozna? University of Arts in 2012. Focused on parametric and generative design, which he considers to be a natural way of design thinking. Computational design popularizer, tutor for many international workshops, co-author of the first Polish parametric design oriented website (projektowanieparametryczne.pl ).
