Crypto Cities V1.0 Webinar by DesignMorphine

Crypto Cities V1.0 Webinar
February 5th, 2022

Crypto Cities V1.0 will explore generative drawing practices over one hundred years. From early conceptual art of the mid-20th century minimalists to today's generative art movement enabled by NFTs on the blockchain, the use of algorithms to produce drawings is fertile ground for architects and designers. While many popular BIM platforms automate drawings, they do so with an eye towards production, not creativity. 

This webinar will focus on conceptual drawings made visible through automation. As a demonstration, drawings of fictional cities will be developed and then minted on the blockchain. Using Grasshopper as the primary tool, this webinar will take attendees through creating generative sketches of fictional urban developments. These sketches will be refined through various prebuilt component groups provided during the workshop. The webinar will detail how to use plugins such as Human to automate layer and attribute creation and baking to Rhino. The drawings will be further refined in Illustrator before being minted on an NFT marketplace. Attendees will learn various techniques within Grasshopper related to drawing output and managing complex files, as well as how the basics of minting artwork on the blockchain.
