The main goal of this course is to understand the basic concepts behind parametric structural design, digital form-finding and fabrication.
After the course you should be able to:
- parametrically model complex curves and surfaces as well as structural elements in Rhino and Grasshopper;
- use form-finding tools for 2D and 3D structures;
- size tension and compression members;
- use basic digital fabrication scripts.
Registration at http://www.mystudies.ethz.ch/ is required.
The course is graded based on the exercises handed out during the course lectures. The last hour of each lesson is reserved for the practical exercises, and must be submitted by the next lesson.
