Event Description

Discover beautiful, playful, and self-structuring forms using Grasshopper and Kangaroo.

About This Workshop:

Expanding on the capabilities of the parametric tool, Grasshopper, Kangaroo provides creative professionals with the ability to integrate physics-based simulation techniques into their workflow. In applications ranging from architectural to product design, this workshop will cover advanced techniques for modeling adaptable components using dynamic constraints and forces in a performance-oriented environment.

In a fast-paced and hands-on learning environment, you will learn techniques for using Parametric Design, Physics-Based Simulation, and Component Detailing for Digital Fabrication. Through guided exercises, group discussions, and one-on-one prototyping sessions, you will design and construct a series of component assemblies.


  • Focused learning with Grasshopper and Kangaroo
  • Approaches to working with constraints, ranging from geometric to physical
  • Techniques for detailing geometry for Digital Fabrication
  • Hands-on experience with a large format CNC laser cutter
  • Assemble and take home a collection of Prototypes

We are gearing up for this weekend's workshop on Generative Assemblies and are excited to share that we will be bundling complimentary access to two of our online courses as a part of any workshop registration. By including our Parametric Pleating and Introduction to Simulation courses we are aiming to prime the conversations for this weekend and enable us to move quickly through iterative prototyping. Please let us know if you are interested in attending. We look forward to your participation.
