I am a Landscape Architecture instructor and PhD student in Hannover, Germany. As part of my research, I’ve been exploring algorithmic systems to see how they are applied or could be applied to the design of landscapes, specifically in the context of landscape architecture.

Initially this blog will focus on exercises from a seminar I created for learning Grasshopper / Rhino. They start out pretty basic, although you may want to watch a few YouTube tutorials covering the basics if you are a complete beginner. Some ones I can highly recommend are done by Nick Senske at the UNCC School of Architecture. Look at some of the older tutorials first for basics. Some other excellent tutorials are at Mode Lab. They have very good, paid content, but also a few introductory courses for free!

If you don’t know or are not trying to learn Grasshopper / Rhino, reading the text may prove of limited use, but hopefully you will still find some of the pictures to be pretty!
