Plant Kit Deep Dive Workshops, May 20 and 21

May 20 and 21

Using generative tools and computational power, Plant Kit allows you to build workflows that integrate analysis, design decisions, and rapid iteration to realize your planting design efficiently and effectively using conceptual plants or real-life plant data.

The Plant Kit Deep Dive workshops will focus on workflows and techniques that will allow you to explore how to create and iterate through your planting design and documentation. Learn how to use computational power to simultaneously incorporate multiple factors into your designs such as ecosystem services, long-term sustainability/survivability, design-driven placements, and more. These sessions will encourage you to follow along and engage in interactive demos to gain greater insight into Plant Kit’s functionality.

Class size: 10 maximum participants per session. Sign up today to reserve your spot!

Plant Kit is a tool specifically designed to evolve your planting design workflow by packaging essential modeling and design functions into a suite of tools that take a different approach than any other software today. This deep dive workshop is designed for users with basic knowledge of Rhino and Grasshopper, although new users are welcome to join to understand how this new toolset could expand their current methods of planting design. 

Participants will leave the workshop with a deep understanding of Plant Kit and methods for linking these techniques to your existing computational design workflow. Participants will understand:

  • How plants can be used as blocks for documentation in CAD
  • How these plant blocks can translate to nodes in rendering software like Lumion
  • How to visualize growth over time and bloom over the course of the year.
  • How to use the plant schedule component
