This course investigates nonlinear computational generative systems and their application in the manufacturing of architectural design research. Functioning as an open source research group of computational design, by concentrating primarily on Python for Rhinoceros3D, a new set of possibilities for the development of cutting-edge digital techniques is explored. The seminar tests this software in an intensive format and seeks to produce innovative intersections between explicit modeling/figuration and algorithmic formation. No previous programming experience is necessary; both introductory and advanced level students are accommodated with a series of introductory sessions, online tutorials, workshops, and lectures followed by suggested readings that gradually focus on individual projects. Students also work in pairs to design, code, and fabricate a full-scale constructed assembly. Limited enrollment.
