2019 Computational Design Workshop:
Introduction to Rhino & Grasshopper
01/23/2019 – 01/29/2019
@ Turenscape Beijing
The workshop is an introduction to the fundamental skills, concepts, and processes of computational design using the digital platforms Rhinoceros and Grasshopper. This workshop is taught by international experts of computational and algorithmic design and is designed for students with zero experience with such design methods and tools.
In seven days, you will learn fundamental commands, practice by replicating world-renowned designs, and gain the necessary skills for further exploration of the organic and complex shapes enabled by computational design methods. At the end of the workshop, you will be able to fluently apply computational design skills to your own projects.
