With the current world under lockdown, and everyone at home, the medium of online learning presents a huge opportunity for everyone. ArchiDiaries supports this learning beyond universities and classrooms and thus is taking up the role of a facilitator. We bring to you exciting online workshops from tutors across Design and Architecture universities, fields and experiences. These workshops are a great convenience for co-learning from home, while battling through these uncertain times.​

Autumn 2020

(For Intermediate Learning)

Rhino + Grasshopper

20 September – 14 October

As the name suggests, this workshop aims to introduce Grasshopper as a design assistant. The workshop starts by learning various plugins like Lunchbox, Weaverbird, Ladybug, Mouse, Wasp, Space – Syntax, and magnetic floor plan. These plugins help in generating algorithms and evaluating them.

In the second half of the workshop, participants will be working with Genetic algorithms using the plugin Octopus. Genetic algorithm is a technique for optimizing the solution to a given problem. At the end of the workshop the participants will take up some advanced optimization problems where they will build up various grasshopper clusters for getting the best solution very quickly.

(For Advanced Learning)

Rhino + Grasshopper + Python

25 October – 12 November

This workshop aims to introduce Grasshopper as a Design Driver, where as a Designer you can set up a larger logic and let grasshopper design for you.

This workshop will cover the full workflow for the same where the participant will start with the learning of python and then various other concepts of A.I. After which, they will create a script that uses A.I algorithms for automating various processes in design.

In the next stage, they will learn how they can take the design produced by Grasshopper to Revit using Rhino. Inside Revit participants will learn how to use Human UI to feed user inputs for getting the desired outcome.
