4D Island, in association with AAM & Atollscape, successfully hosted a Grasshopper Introductory workshop for AAM Members from 4th-8th Aug 2019
The aims of the workshop were (as presented by 4D Island);
- Basic working understanding of Grasshopper
- The potential of grasshopper and parametric design tools
- Using collected data to inform design
- Applying data based design methods and investigations
During the workshop participants were taught basic grasshopper scripting skills where they recreated ‘twisting tower’ geometries, a public spaces canopy, used image sampling to map greenery on a satellite image of an island, and mapped and visualized population data on a map of the Maldives.
Most importantly, participants were given a well guided exposure to the rhino plugin, and enough understanding to take it further individually and explore the limits of it on both a personal and professional capacity.
We appreciate 4D Island for conducting the workshop and look forward to similar collaborations in the near future.
