The main goal of this course is to understand the basic concepts behind parametric structural design, digital formfinding and fabrication.
After the course you should be able to:
- parametrically model complex curves and sufaces as well as structural elements in Rhino and Grasshopper;
- use formfinding tools for 2D and 3D structures;
- use basic digital fabrication scripts.
Registration at http://www.mystudies.ethz.ch/ is required.
