### Abstract

In this course, we introduce you to the Parametric Design using Grasshopper and Rhino3D software. You learn how to establish your own algorithmic design and thinking method. We use this knowledge in other courses on the OTP to implement or customize urban design models to generate complex geometries with logical algorithms.

### Learning objectives

The objective of this course is to enable you to use Grasshopper mainly with some Rhino3D basics for creative design applications.

The knowledge provided through online seminars will be documented in several exercises.

### Requirements

It is not essential that you have any previous knowledge of any CAD software.

### Lecturers

**Basic information about Parametric Design**

This course is essential to grasp the basic idea of modelling and parametric design. The exercise is too simple to handle Grasshopper. I would like to learn how to handle the data list more. The instruction is clear and precise. I strongly recommend this course to anyone interested in parametric design.

Abdulmalik AbdulmawlaThanks for your comments. I have updated the lessons by adding 3 more exercises for more advanced modelling techniques.
