Kitchen Tent | Parametric Project

This is a video of a current project in our office, area.architecture, in which we developed a parametric system in grasshopper to manipulate the overall form - which will have to negotiate a tightly wooded site and respond to particular sun and wind directions. After the main regulating lines are developed in GH a Rhinoscript is run to create the structure. The structure will eventually be clothed in sailcloth. See the area website for more details on the project - which is ongoing. Note: this video is without sound. Total Length 5.45

Shifting Fins

The system produced in this tutorial helps explain vectors and their use in manipulating line direction. Total Length: 20.07
