Introduction to Parametric Design :: IPD Open

In this course, we introduce you to the Parametric Design using Grasshopper and Rhino3D software. You learn how to establish your algorithmic design and thinking method. This knowledge is required as a basis for other courses on the OTP in order to implement or customize urban design models or to generate complex geometries.


Introduction to Scripting with C# for Grasshopper in Rhino3D :: ISC Open

In this course, we introduce you to the programming language C#, which we use as a scripting language in Grasshopper for Rhino3D. This scripting knowledge is necessary to have more control of your Grasshopper definition.

Module :: Environmental Analysis with GH

The course introduces environmental analysis methods with Grasshopper/Rhino3D. It covers the analysis of solar radiation, outdoor thermal comfort, and wind.

Module :: Urban Resilience Analysis – Flooding

This module is dedicated to flooding resilience. You will learn to set up your own rain-runoff simulation and evaluation model in Rhino3D/Grasshopper. The goal of the course is to use GIS data to build a 3d model where your project is located and use the simulation model to develop a design that is resilient against heavy rainfall and pluvial flooding.

Parametric Urban Design & Analysis :: PUDA 19.2

In this course, you will first learn to create parametric models, that allow to quickly generate a large number of design variants. Secondly, you will get introduced to spatial analysis methods in order to identify different qualities of the generated urban forms.


Urban Modeling and Simulation :: UMS Advanced Open

In this course, you learn to work with advanced urban modeling and simulation techniques based and system dynamics methods. We deal with the modeling of complex spatial systems on the regional and urban level. In this context, computational analysis methods for urban fabric and models for computing interactions between land uses are introduced.


Urban Modeling and Simulation :: UMS Basic Open

In this course, we introduce you to the basic theories of models and systems, as well as to urban simulation methods with Grasshopper for Rhino 3D. We model spatial systems on different abstraction levels and integrate computational analysis methods for urban fabric and models for interactions between land uses.
