Visual Algorithms

  

DESCRIPTION

The shape grammar as a famous algorithmic design framework of all shapes is a powerful tool to explore recursive patterns and their derivation effects. However, with the complexity of parametric algorithms of shape representation, seldom computational tools are developed in practice. In this workshop, a computational tool based on Rhino will be used and a framework of shape grammar will be adapted for the exploration of endless recursion design artifacts and their symbiotic relations.

INTRODUCTOR

Andrew Li (associate professor, Kyoto Institute of Technology (KIT)
