Generative design processes are constantly evolving and contributing to new innovative design workflows. The new digital techniques, combined with human sensibility and manual (analogue) techniques, are opening new grounds of design exploration that are directed towards seamless integration of form, material, and the applied forces. This integrated process entails a shift from traditional form-finding techniques to processes of a generative and performative nature. As a result, different Dynamics are evolving in the Design process, reflecting a synthesis of form, material, and performance.
Design Dynamics investigates the relationship between forces in nature and evolving form out of it. Participants will be working on exercises, using techniques presented in the workshop. Workshop exercises will use Polygonal Modelling in combination with Particle Systems, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Optimization & Evolutionary Solvers, and Vectorial Fields to design forms of different scale and complexity. The proposed workflow will combine the use of Rhino, Grasshopper, CFD with some plug-ins such as Kangaroo, Weaverbird, and Firefly to actuate it. During the workshop, participants will also be introduced for how to make their design more interactive using sensors and actuators.
Classrooms will be conducted at SPARRO Studio, New Delhi
A maximum of 15 seats are allowed per batch of the workshop. 13 Seats available.
