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

Recursive Subdivision of a Topographical Surface – Example 8.3

This example is partly regional analysis, partly trying to make cool images, and partly could have some practical applications. I’ve seen a few scripts floating around called “Recursive Subdivision of a Surface.” One… Continue reading

Geometry through Extrusions and Containment Curves – Example 5.1

Perhaps the simplest way to start creating 3Dimensional objects in 3D modeling environments is through the extrusion command. In this example, I use the extrusion command to make some basic benches and tree… 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

Multiple Point Attractor with Random Point Cloud – Example 2.2

A multi-point attractor follows a similar logic as the single point attractor, although distance is measured in a slightly different way. In principle, however, a multi-point attractor is much more useful than a… Continue reading

Using Dispatch to Create Random Variation – Example 1.5

The previous examples were a little abstract when it comes to direct application to a Landscape Architecture project, but this one is a very concrete example of how a simple script in Grasshopper… Continue reading
