Event Description

Our Level 1 workshops will focus on beginner/intermediate architecture software skills, applicable to the conceptual and schematic design phases. 

For these workshops you will build the Stahl House (Case Study #22) from scratch and you will learn the tools & skills required to take this project through the conceptual to the schematic design phases. 

In each session, we’ll highlight what is unique about the software & where it is most powerful so you can leverage its power in your own work.  We’ll also spend some time considering useful workflows between various software.

Later this year and next we will introduce Level 2 & Level 3 workshops that focus on intermediate & advanced skills, which will build upon what you learn in the Level 1 workshops.

Our workshops are taught by practicing architects (not trainers) who are working at some of the world’s most highly respected firms like SOM & Gensler.  You’ll learn from folks who use these tools on a daily basis, so you can learn the shortcuts to get your work done faster.

Conceptual & Schematic Design in Rhino 5

Instructor: David Tracy

Learn all of the tools & strategies necessary to build this site and house in 3d, and then develop orthogonal and 3-dimensional drawings/renderings of the house using Rhino’s native tools. 

Rhino’s sweet spot skills:  Through developing an ‘design intervention’ for the Stahl House, yanalou will explore tools for making organic geometry and for flattening, unwrapping and translating organic geometry.

Workflow focus:  You will also learn how to get your Rhino model into 3ds Max Design to develop 3d renderings, and how to get your Rhino drawings into AutoCAD or Illustrator to further develop your 2d drawings.  You will also briefly explore how Rhino & Grasshopper work together.
