Computational Design / by Kai Zhu

For the past few months I have been learning Grasshopper in my spare time. I am fascinated by the potentials of computational design and how the industry is rapidly approaching towards BIM (building information modelling). Now I'm just itching to apply what I've learnt onto a real project.

Here is an example of a fully parametric paneled surface I created whilst in Grasshopper.
