Grasshopper Cloud Presentation

2009, Just for fun.

At the 2009 Grasshopper Cloud event at Buro Happold in NYC, I presented some research concerning applications of Grasshopper software within urban planning. The presentation was divided into three major applications: Analysis, Planning, and Visualization. For planning and visualization purposes I demonstrated how one could use Grasshopper to generate urban environments. I defined eight parametric building designs, which took as input the parcel shape and the story count, and then those buildings were grown into place based on neighborhood shaping rules.
