UCLA Grasshopper Redux

This Saturday I will be instructing part 2 of the Grasshopper workshop @ UCLA.  This session will focus on more advanced topics and will make use of two popular plug-ins:  Kangaroo and DIVA.

In the first half of the workshop, the class will look at Kangaroo Physics to study various forces on parametric structural models and surfaces that can be created with some of The Proving Ground tools.

The second half of the workshop will look at daylight analysis using DIVA.  A solar-responsive facade system will be created which responds to daylight parameters.
