Introduction to Parametric Design with Grasshopper

Introduction to Parametric Design with Grasshopper | Karimsky-Lab | Scoop.it
This course is aimed to teach the basic principles of parametric design using the Grasshopper plugin for Rhino. You will learn the main characteristics of a parametric design approach and how it benefits its application on your design tasks. We will also cover in depth how does Grasshopper works, its interface and how do you mange and organize information on it.

On this course we will also cover basic concepts of computer science (programming), and the importance of these to start developing your own algorithms. You'll learn how to identify the different parameters that compose a design and how to associate one to each other in order to build flexible systems with smart components.

This course is specially aimed for people who has no prior experience with parametric design or Grasshopper.
This course is still under development, please check regularly for new videos.

From Gravity to Inception: The Mind-Bending Movie World of Projection Mapping

From Gravity to Inception: The Mind-Bending Movie World of Projection Mapping | Karimsky-Lab | Scoop.it
Similar to the logical fallacy of the Penrose stairs (think Inception) and anamorphosis, which stemmed for trompe l’oeil and the use of forced perspective, 3D projection mapping reexamines familiar architecture and stretches our synapses by challenging the mind to keep up with spatial and temporal trickery of the medium. This captivating trend is mostly used as an urban attraction and an advertising gimmick, but thanks to the power of its audio-visual narrative, it has the potential to explore the synthesis of real and digital space and deeply influence our attitude toward designing space. When developed with a strong connection to the architectural object onto which it is projected, 3D mapping can be the ultimate educational tool which ...

A Shipping Container Costs About $2,000. What These 15 People Did With That Is Beyond Epic

A Shipping Container Costs About $2,000. What These 15 People Did With That Is Beyond Epic | Karimsky-Lab | Scoop.it
A luxury home doesn’t always necessarily mean thousands of square footage, towering great rooms and gilded toilets. Take these homes for example: to begin building one of these epic houses, all you need is $2,000. That $2,000 will buy you a shipping container. What you do with that shipping container… well, that’s completely up to you. Some creative people have found a way to transform this rudimentary “room” with metal siding into luxury housing that blows us away. These homes are epic.

Designing the Architecture of Virtual Reality with Pixar, Disney and Anime

Designing the Architecture of Virtual Reality with Pixar, Disney and Anime | Karimsky-Lab | Scoop.it
Today's virtual on-screen realities follow both "old school" and "new school" techniques, similar to the software-intensive versus "by-hand" debate in architecture. In animation, some value the alchemy and artistry in hand drawing and illustrating, while others encourage efficiency and novelty in computer software. Both Disney and Pixar (under the same Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter since Disney's acquisition of Pixar in 2006) focus on the most technically sophisticated virtual reality, through real time software and "digital cloning," while other Disney films adapt their software to be as un-computerized as possible and reminiscent of traditional "old school" Disney-esque 2-D animation. Anime stands on its own and limits animation...
