Emerging Facade - swarm-designed structure in Grasshopper
Recorded on Jan 28, 2015
Grasshopper has become a standard for parametric and automated design. The plug-ins Anemone and Boid open a possibility to simulate complex multi-agent systems - swarms -producing unexpected and intricate forms as results of a multitude of small-scale interaction. Such a design is truly bottom-up and emergent.
The webinar demonstrates several ways of utilizing swarm behavior in producing various complex facade structures.
The webinar is free and lasts about one hour, including the Q&A session.
