modeLab | Advanced Parametrics Workshop

Advanced Parametrics is a two-day intensive design workshop (with an optional third day) to be held in New York City during the weekend of December 04.

This workshop will cover advanced parametric topics such as data structure manipulation as well as design strategies that incorporate Simulation and Genetic Algorithms in a fast-paced and hands-on learning environment.  An optional third workshop day is offered to those participants desiring further time to develop individual projects or lines of research.

Rhino, in conjunction with the parametric modeling plug-in Grasshopper and its multitude of add-ons, offers the possibility to explore parametric and computational design with unprecedented fluidity. Leveraging this capacity, we have structured this workshop around a series of architectural design strategies with supporting content to foster a fast-paced and productive learning environment. As part of a larger online infrastructure, modeLab, this workshop provides participants with continued support and knowledge to draw upon for future learning.

Attendance will be limited to provide each participant maximum dedicated time with instructors. Participants should be familiar with the basic concepts of parametric design and interface of Grasshopper.

modeLab is graciously supported by the following sponsors:


Instructors | Ronnie Parsons + Gil Akos | Partners, Studio Mode.
All experience levels are welcome. Participants should be familiar with the basic concepts of parametric design and interface of Grasshopper.
All participants are required to bring their own laptops. Trial software will be made available.
