Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe – Case Study 01 – Part 01 – Setting up the Plan

This is the first in what I hope to be a longer series of Case Studies, where I want to look at well-known landscape design projects that include parametric thinking, and to try… Continue reading

Growing Lines – Example 10.3

Another way to approach growing structures using Grasshopper and the looping Anenome add-on is to incrementally change geometry until a certain condition is met. In this example, I will take a series of lines… Continue reading

Diffuse Limited Aggregation Structure – Example 10.2

A fairly useful and simple fractal growth process that can be used for modeling natural structures is known as the Diffuse Limited Aggregation algorithm. Many growing structures in nature follow this logic, from… Continue reading

Changing Topography with a Curve Attractor – Example 4.5

Many of the examples we looked at in the 2D Patterns can be adapted to create geometry in 3 Dimensions. In this exercise, we use the same logic employed in the Curve Attractor Example to… Continue reading

Rotating Circles – Example 3.3

This example is also based on a Processing program from the book Generative Design. The concept, like the last one, is fairly simple. Circles are nested within each other, each having a center point evenly spaced along… Continue reading

Curve Attractors – Example 2.3

In the last two examples, we looked at point attractors, but you can also use attractors with curves (think paths). In this example we will use the concept of an attractor to scale geometry based on the… Continue reading
