Amada bench by Matthias Pliessing
object for first project.
some good rhino videos… enjoy!
Sitscape by Hackenbroich Architects is the object I plan to model for the variable section geometry assignment. It is a seating system that offers the sitter to sit in various positions. The design is based on seven relaxed positions and the smooth transformations between them.
The following shows the process I took for modeling this object in Rhino. I created the geometry at each section cut and lofted them. This is my first pass at modeling this object in Rhino. More to come soon…
This is the 1st assignment.
I need to figure out how to deal with my next part…^^
The first weekly assignment, Variable Section Geometry – part 1 is available below and on google docs.
This is the class blog for INT 659.01, Rhinoceros and Grasshopper: Rule Based Modeling, at the Pratt Institute Interior Design department, Spring 2012. The class syllabus can be viewed as a google document at this link. Here is an excerpt from the abstract:
“Rhino and Grasshopper: Rule Based Modeling is an advanced level Interiors course that will teach students the fundamentals of rule-based modeling for design applications in Interior Design, Architecture and Product Design. The curriculum will encourage a conceptual shift away from the authorship of individual design artifacts towards the creation and navigation of rule based design spaces. In order to do so, the course will investigate rule-based and parametric design concepts and techniques in the context of a generative modeling environment: Grasshopper for Rhino.”
