Rhino for Architecture workshop
June 15-16, 2015
The workshop will showcase the different uses of Rhino along the process of architectural production, from conceptual development through construction documentation. Starting with an overview of Rhino as an all‐around tool for conceptualizing and developing architectural models, the class will then illustrate the software's potential for geometry control, rationalization and the coordination of information across the design team. Further options for documentation production, visualization, interoperability with other software and BIM compliant workflows will be demonstrated. Each subject will be explained through the step‐by step development of examples and built case studies with detailed analysis of key commands and critical workflows.
Vincent Nowak (Flow Architecture) and Annarita Papeschi (Zaha Hadid Architects) will share their detailed knowledge from their direct experience working on large complex projects at Zaha Hadid Architects as well as the intricacies of integration on smaller projects at Flow Architecture. Together they will demonstrate, through actual case studies, how Rhino was used in the design of various building parts and then ultimately integrated with other software packages to smoothly move between design and construction in a rational and efficient manner.
