Advanced Concept Workshop using Land Kit and Grasshopper


August 27

Today, designers face many complex challenges that require understanding and analyzing multiple systems simultaneously. When used effectively, Grasshopper and Land Kit offer various ways to deal with site planning, complex analysis, design automation, and much more.

This Advanced Concepts Workshop introduces a wide range of applications for Land Kit, in addition to ways in which Grasshopper can be used to develop parametric workflows for accomplishing complex tasks quickly and accurately. Using custom tools and alternative Land Kit workflows, this workshop will equip you with specific examples and showcase the possibilities of computational design to become an essential tool.

This Advanced Concepts workshop is designed for users with advanced knowledge of Rhino and Grasshopper, although new users are welcome to join to gain more understanding of how computational design techniques can become an important approach to the design process.

Date: August 27
Time: 10 am-3 pm EST (includes 1-hour lunch break)
Cost: $300 ($100 for students and faculty)

Ladybug Tools online course, October 17-19 (McNeel Europe)


Ladybug Tools online workshop
October 17-19, 2022
Hosted by McNeel Europe (Zoom)

Ladybug Tools is a collection of free computer applications that support environmental design. Ladybug Tools connects 3D Computer-Aided Design (CAD) interfaces to a selection of validated simulation engines. The 3-day course taught by the cofounders of Dosta Tec, Adrian Krężlik and Mateo Barbero, and Dr. Emanuele Naboni, Associate Professor at the University of Parma, Italy, introduces Ladybug tools and the fundamentals of building energy performance to architects and engineers. The course covers topics such as climate change and its impact on construction, climate-based energy and thermal comfort, and daylight modelling.

Participants will learn about both theory and practice of energy modelling concepts. Parametric models in Grasshopper will be developed to simulate energy intensity, indoor thermal comfort, and daylight autonomy, to integrate standards such as LEED and BREEAM, and lastly, to adjust rural climate models to urban valley conditions.

Day 1

  • Introduction to climate modelling in AEC
  • Introduction to the Ladybug Tools (LBT) UI
  • Climate modelling
  • Energy Modelling in LBT: Rural vs urban weather model
  • IPCC on building challenges; BREEAM and LEED
  • Introduction to Heat Flow

Day 2

  • Example of a simple energy model
  • Energy Intensity and End-use. Carbon Intensity of energy sources
  • Detailed Energy Model: Systems, Program & People
  • Adjusting the Energy Model: Materials & their properties
  • Introduction to Thermal Comfort
  • Thermal Comfort Modelling

Day 3

  • Daylight Physics, Sun Position, Radiation Rose, Local Daylight Conditions
  • Sunlight hours on the façade. Introduction to Daylight Modelling
  • Simple Daylight Autonomy Modelling
  • Adjusting the Daylight Model: Materials & Physics
  • Annual Sunlight Exposure

Course requirements: Basic knowledge of Rhino and Grasshopper.

Online course fees: EUR 395,- (+VAT); full-time students and university teachers get a 50% discount (proof of status required). Please note that we will confirm your seat after your payment has cleared.

Max. number of participants: 25. If there is no quorum, the course will be canceled two weeks before.

Two new books for jewelry designers!

Dana Buscaglia has published two new books to demonstrate and teach using Rhinoceros 7.0 for the design and creation of jewelry modeling. 

The first volume covers basic Rhino commands and the 2D project creation. The second volume covers basic Rhino commands and the 3D project creation. The chapters are in tutorial format with step-by-step instructions that gradually build a knowledge base, becoming more advanced in later chapters. 

Dana Buscaglia’s 40+ years of experience in jewelry ranges over various segments of the jewelry industry. After designing and executing her line of contemporary jewelry for 13 years, Dana moved to a more commercial side and took design jobs at Jacmel Jewelry and then at Avon. Both experiences exposed Dana to the different worlds of jewelry design and mass production.

As outsourcing became important, involving the transmission of accurate product design and description to contractors worldwide, Dana became interested in Computer Aided Design to easily and accurately transmit drawings and layouts. She became adept at AutoCAD and then branched into Rhinoceros because of its ability to create both drafted 2D drawings and 3-dimensional models. 

Dana’s design experience is an advantage when translating the work of other designers into technical drawings and layouts or 3-dimensional digital models for prototyping.

Dana has also become a licensed Rhino instructor and teaches Computer Aided Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology. 

The books are available at Amazon, Lulu Publishing, Barnes & Nobles, and others.
