Fluidic Expressions V1.0 Webinar by DesignMorphine

Fluidic Expressions V1.0 Webinar
November 6, 2022, from 3 PM to 8 PM UTC

Fluidic Expressions V1.0 will focus on presenting the fully manifested image of fluidity, its forms, and logic through Rhinoceros SubD's. The course will question whether fluidity is a material and spatial practice. How does fluidity form relations between spatial, social, material, and experiential forms? Viewing the fields of urbanism, architecture, and design as inherently interrelated with the fluid sensibility of the design impacting our perception of space will be explored and modeled with SubDs. Students will begin by learning the basics of SubD in Rhino, how to use them and how they differ from mesh and Nurbs topologies. From there, we will use SubD to sculpt and manipulate form into beautiful fluid-flowing architectures. Ideas about smooth connectivity, weighted gradient form manipulation, continuity of curvature, and model cleanliness will be explored. SubD is the surface representation of a spline in which they represent actual curvature, unlike mesh which approximates curvature. Nurbs also represent curvature; however, they can be difficult to manipulate into complex freeform objects. SubD provides the real curvature advantages of Nurbs paired with the manipulation ease of a mesh.
