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

Complex pattern from Simple Tiles – Example 3.5

You don’t need to produce all your geometry in Grasshopper as in the previous examples. It is often more productive to draw things statically in Rhino and then have them processed in Grasshopper.… Continue reading

Voronoi, Delauney, and Quadtree – Example 2.6

If you poke around Grasshopper too much, sooner or later you will find the Voronoi diagram function, and will be tempted to use it on every design project from then on. The temptation… 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

Culling to create regular patterns – Example 1.4

While most contemporary design expression tends to avoid patterns like the one above, introducing regular rhythms into projects is still important, and can be done very easily using the “Cull” components in grasshopper.… Continue reading
