CODEKITCHEN #4: Evolutionary Structures | August 3, 2016

Design space exploration and visualization using photo-shop and grasshopper 3-D.

Taught by Mark Kam-Ming Tam, MIT Digital Structures

 

Participants will learn about genetic algorithm optimization methods, to generate and visualize architectural design options. The activity will demonstrate the basics of parametric modelling using Grasshopper 3D, and Finite Element Analysis plugins. Participants will have an opportunity to 3D print small truss designs for load testing.
