Composition/generation CREATING A GRID SHELL - EXPERIMENTATION FORM
The “creating a gridshell” video was followed in order to create of a unique gridshell. Using Rhino3D a series of closed curves were randomly created. By employing the components demonstrated in the video, such as ‘explode tree’ and ‘rebuild’ the algorithm could be controlled and the final outcome enhanced. Manipulation of values using slider components assisted in the creation of a interesting, overlapping gridshell. Through experimentation with values in Grasshopper as well as manipulation of the overall geometry in Rhino, it was evident that the variety of achievable design outcomes was infinite. Through this exercise it became clear how various timber pavilions designs are conceived and realised.
