Sandy Hook Elementary - recovering and rebuilding


Four years ago, December 2012, Sandy Hook Elementary was reeling from a shooting that killed 20 children and 8 adults. This week, Sandy Hook Elementary School reopened with a sunlit, cheerful, new school -- a school with security subtly built in the design.

The new school design is by Svigals + Partners, a New Haven-based architectural firm.

The architect referred to Sandy Hook's rolling landscape with a sinuous roofline and two-toned hardwood cladding in the building facade. Doug Lovegren of Svigals + Partners commented,  "We did use Rhino to help us design the front wall which is curved and has a wavy top. We were having trouble playing with that form in Revit so we took it out to Rhino. We also used that to help us create our flattened elevations for that same wall."

For more details on achieving security in a beautiful environment, see the FastCo article....

The KUKA industrial robot at the robot laboratory of the Robotic Woodcraft research project will be used to fabricate selected projects, using a newly developed and innovative plastic forming process entailing a new manufacturing process chain. The workshop will close with a final presentation of the full-scale structure followed by an exhibition. 

Lectures by international experts will accompany the workshop. Ideal participants are architecture students with a bias in digital design and fabrication. Basic use of Rhino and Grasshopper is required. Knowledge of Karamba is a plus, but not required.


Workshop: "Translate16 | Re-active structures"



3-7 October 2016
Rome – Italy

In an environment where everything is fluid, spaces cannot remain passive. Architects, engineers and designers have to face new and increasingly complex challenges related to new social behaviors, digital landscapes and climate changes. Inspired from biological organisms’ structural alterations in response to environmental stimuli we are keen on introducing similar behaviors in built structures. Advanced computation technologies and physical computing offer a completely new way to think and approach design, architecture and urban planning, a way more coherent with our rapidly evolving habitat. We aim to investigate the human-space interaction as a new design paradigm for physical spaces.

Using Rhino, Grasshopper and some other plug-ins, this workshop will focus on generative design to explore structural behaviors. Introducing physical computing and internet of things’ logic, it experiments with user-structure interaction.

Another bridge, another design style



Rhino and Grasshopper are often used for bridge design, from the curves of a Paris pedestrian bridge to the straight lines of this London bridge.

Knight Architects is a British firm specializing in bridge design. With the engineering firm AKT II, Knight designed this footbridge as a part of the Merchant Square development at Paddington in west London.

The footbridge's five-blade steel deck opens and closes like a fan, using a hydraulically operated hinged mechanism and counterweights.

The footbridge is an understatement when closed and drama when it opens.

Designing curves in a Paris pedestrian footbridge


ThinkParametric's Design Playground has published Using Grasshopper and Tekla to Construct a Pedestrian Footbridge in Paris.

It's a complete breakdown of the work flow and strategy used in the design and construction of a footbridge by DVVD Architects at ZAC Claude Bernard. Azhar Khan shares how he and his Elioth team acted as consultants, walking through the process and problems to build the footbridge.

The asymmetrical bridge twists from beginning to end. As the bridge's cross section is continuously changing, each deck member is unique.

Elioth set up a Grasshopper model to represent the bridge's primary elements. Starting with the architect's Rhino model, they took the geometry to produce a simple model of the bridge's primary steel structure.

Iris - WebGL Exporter, new version



Iris is a free Work In Progress file export plug-in for Rhino 5 x64 for Windows, Rhino 5.1 for Mac OS X, and Rhino WIP (Windows and OS X). Iris generates a JSON document that is parsable and viewable through WebGL in a modern web browser. The objectives for the plug-in include:

  • A fast and easy way for Rhino users to distribute their designs with the least amount of dependencies possible.
  • Conversion of as many Rhino Object Types and Features as possible in a static scene.


Many changes happened under the hood to decouple the Iris Web Application Logic from the UI logic. This will make it easier to develop alternative UIs if you are so inclined. In the future a few different example UIs will show how it can be done.

Waterworks workshop by AA Visiting School Granada - September 5-16, Granada (Spain)


Waterworks workshop
September 5-16
Granada (Spain)


Waterworks, a 12-day architectural workshop in Granada (Spain) by the Architectural Association, is now open for registration. Waterworks transports architectural design back to its origins, tackling social-agricultural realities by offering participants a unique opportunity to work alongside local producers, architects, scientists, horticulturists and the larger community. In the workshop students will learn to use Rhino as a design tool while also exploring Rhino's ability within sustainable analysis and informative design outputs.

As a historical region in Andalusia, the area of Granada combines scenic beauty with ecological importance and resources that meet the requirements of an agricultural economy which relies on water that travels 3,482m down from the peninsula's highest peak.

Responding to these realities through architectural interventions, students will design water catchment and management solutions for the local region. Proposals will consider the effects of climate change on water distribution and the implications at local and regional scales. Students will be immersed in hands-on, site-specific experimentation; speculate on scenarios; develop prototypes using locally grown materials; and explore the potential of leading design software. They will work, live, swim, drink, question, explore and interact with this transparent fluid, vital to all forms of life, in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, a Unesco Biosphere Reserve.

Application Deadline: August 20, 2016
