It is no secret that we’ve been critical of the recent framing of “generative design” as a technological trend largely driven by product marketing. We’ve instigated lively Twitter debates, a full-length podcast discussion, and critical positioning papers. “Generative” is a term that carries some important historic context in the domains of computer science, art, and … Continue reading Free Generative Design – A brief overview of tools created by the Grasshopper community
Building design and construction fields continue to struggle with software interoperability and compatibility. This has resulted in wasteful processes requiring teams to laboriously rebuild geometry and manually recreate data when using different design tools. Today, the building industry’s modeling software is largely not designed with compatibility as a guiding principle and design teams are often … Continue reading Conveyor – Custom Workflow Implementations
