parametric structure exercise







The other day i was watching some documentaries of Calatravas´s work ,suddenly I took a piece of paper start doing some lines then I passed them into rhino , made a Grasshopper definition and here are some of the results i got, its amazing what you can achieve by using parametric systems in terms of variability and speed of design all the models shown here were made in just a couple of hours once I got my definition made It allowed me to control de radius of the diferent srtucture parts as well as the number of sections among some other things,if you want to understand better the process I went trough please watch this video

Hello.. Thank you soo much for this post-it's really inspiring. I'm an undergrad student and I actually have a project this semester to design a swimming pool complex. I'm thinking of using a similar strategy for the exterior shell (I want to do it in the shape of a sea-shell).
I would highly appreciate it if you could please post the youtube link in english or provide some extra details as im a beginner (I have little experience in rhino n just got grasshopper).
thank you so so much in advance. I hope it's not too much to ask as I am currently stuck and my deadline in quite close by!

This is perfect because I can see what you did is incredible, just look at the design!! actually I'd like çto make something really creative using the parametric system with my viagra online's projects.
