Why is this workshop relevant today?

Finding and architecture position can prove to be a daunting challenge, even more having the opportunity to occupy a position where meaningful work gets done.

Becoming proficient in parametric modeling will be a key differentiator from your competition as you'll be better-equipped with skills that are in high demands to solve an office's more complex problems.  

What practical skill sets can I expect to have after completing this workshop?

  • Understanding the fundamental of the Rhino Grasshopper Interfaces
  • Computer Science basics ( Programming) 
  • Breaking down problems into algorithms
  • Create parametric definitions to automate design tasks 
  • Understand material constraints
  • Automating construction and fabrication drawings
  • Prepare files for CNC machining 
  • Assemble a final 1:1 Installation prototype


How were the topics chosen for this workshop?

Contents for this workshop were chosen by industry professionals with plenty of experience on the use parametric modeling tool in real projects.

It's comprehended in two main units, the first one being a dense introduction into the technical use or Rhino & Grasshopper and the second one being a project-oriented activity where participants delve into design and fabrication aspects o building a 1:1 prototype structure. Always keeping in mind the applicability of these task into the professional realm. 

What happens after I attend this workshop?

This event will serve you as an introductory experience where you'll have a clear view of parametric modeling, and how does it gets applied in real situations and the beneficial implications it has in projects. 

It's our hope after this workshop, you'll have the knowledge and confidence to continue your learning journey. It's a steep learning curve at the beginning so we'll be here to ease it as much as we can. 


We have your back !!
