In this course, we’re going to model the roof structure of the Centre Pompidou in Metz from Shigeru Ban architects. We choose this project as a reference because this project manages to combine very simple geometric shapes with a complex organic roof in an elegant way. The course has a nice mix of explicit modeling and parametric modeling to get the desired result of the roof structure.
In the whole design process of this installation, we relied heavily on the use of computational design tools. This approach allowed us to be able to deliver high-quality information within the limited time window in a fast, accurate and efficient manner. In this blog post we’ll explain how and why these tools were used and in what stages of the design process.
Continuing with our objective of teaching with a strong focus on how to use advanced computational design tools in practice we bring you our new course of Modularization & Rationalization with Grasshopper given by Jamie Sol.
Mohamed Naeim shares with us how he used computational design tools during the construction of the Abdul-Aziz Center for World Culture (ITHRA) by Snøhetta architects.
Azhar Khan shares with us the Roof Perforation Optimization using Grasshopper and DIVA he did for the winning entry for the TGV Station in Montpellier, France by Marc Mimram Architects.
At ThinkParametric we want to provide the best education taught by industry professionals who besides teaching the technical aspects of a software also share their insights of years of experience contributing to the built environment. Revit has been a highly anticipated course and we understand the importance of it in the current ecosystem of architectural […]
In this 3D Modeling with Rhino course, we’re going to recreate the famous villa Savoye from Le Corbusier.
In this tutorial you will learn how can you create shell-like surfaces made of planar hexagons using Kangaroo´s Planrization Forces.
