LOFTING AND STATE CAPTURE & TRIANGULATION ALGORITHM Week 1

During the first week, the grasshopper tutorial seemed to be quite straightforward. I am still fascinated how this computation enables us as an architect to bring forward an unpredictable outcome. This may look like just a simple lofting and patterning, yet it is the beginning of my computation work.

To be honest, I thought grasshopper software would be unenjoyable, as it demands its users to design based on vectors and plugins, nontheless, through the first few tutorials, I realized that the lofting done in grasshopper has simplified and enhance the editing of my design. Just by starting with a mere cylinder, within seconds, grasshopper enables my design to progressed into another form.

CURVE MENU AND TRANSFORM MENU EXPLORATIWeek 2

The second week’s practice in grasshopper widens my perspective upon how my design could evolve. I could design the supporting form if I choose to embark on the idea of a continuous surface. The layering of the supporting forms has been challenging at first as the curvier the shapes, the more supporting piece there will be, and it often overstack on top of each other. Yet, after playing around with the sliders I then noticed the purpose of this tutorial.
