One of the most interesting landscape architects from the past 20 years is the French Designer Michel Desvigne. His approach to design and form is very contemporary, and he would generally be considered… Continue reading

In the last example, we looked at using Point charges to create some dynamic structures using the Grasshopper field components. This next example will look at the second type of force, the “Spin” component. The… Continue reading

An interesting set of tools that was introduced to Grasshopper a few versions back are the “Field” tools. It only takes a bit of practice to get these up and working. What is… Continue reading

Another very useful application for fractal processes is to create 3D vegetation for your models. There are several very good commercial products which use algorithms to create plants, which combine mathematical understanding with… Continue reading

We may want to add some more detail to particular regions, such as the forests, instead of simply extruding a mass. Here, desire for detail or realism has to be balanced with overall performance… Continue reading

So far, we have looked at projecting points in order to move Buildings to our surface and projecting lines to form networks, such as for roads. Another category of geometry that can be… Continue reading

Getting a linear network into 3 Dimensions can be very easy, depending on what your expectations are, but like every problem, starts to present problems the further you get into it. In this… Continue reading
