IAP Non-Credit Class: From Byte to Geometry: Algorithmic and Parametric 3D Design

Friday, February 02, 2024 at 2:00pm to 5:00pm

5-234, 5-234

Introduces algorithmic aspects of computer-aided design. The workshop explores applications of fundamental computer algorithms and data structures in the realm of 3D modeling, encourages hands-on practices, and guides participants through the art of generative sculpting. Topics include computational geometry, recursion, graph theory, etc. with tutorials of implementation in Rhino and Grasshopper.



  • Basic 3D modeling experiences in any software is recommended.
  • Basic computer programming experiences in any language is recommended.

Students should bring a laptop to all sessions.
