Architectural Visualization Course: High Detail Modeling

This course covers the workflow of 3D modeling one of our assets into very high detail and is a continuation of the previous Image Planning course. The asset we’re going to focus on is our Sofa. We’re going to start by collecting some additional information on how textile behaves in real life, before we start exporting our low poly model from 3ds Max to ZBrush. In ZBrush we’re going to add all the detail necessary for a realistic representation of our sofa. We’ll end by exporting our high definition UV material maps in Substance Designer.

View Optimization Using Galapagos For Grasshopper

This course focuses on using the evolutionary solver Galapagos to optimize building shapes according to their views. It continues from the Galapagos 101 course, to a more hands-on case study. By mastering Galapagos and getting an understanding of the power of an evolutionary solver, one can make smarter and better-informed decisions early on in the design process.

Deconstructing the Serpentine Pavilion (2016) from BIG

In this course we’ll take a look at the Serpentine Pavilion from BIG and we’ll use a variety of software to deconstruct this project. We’ll start by using Rhino and Grasshopper to find the right shape and size of the pavilion and we’ll continue by rationalizing the geometrical elements into a standardized set. We’ll finish by exporting the information we got from Grasshopper to Excel using FLUX.
