Happy new year! We are back and had our first tutorials session today. Students are submitting their portfolio on Tuesday and have started the last brief (see all our briefs for the year here). Here are two projects which are worth sharing for the following reasons:
Ieva Ciocyte’s elevation and plan drawings are very clear, with attention to details: traced Burning Man people, perfect shadows and lineweights, labels and dimensions. It just looks good.
Andrei Jipa manipulated the G-Code of his 3D Prints to create a continuous extrusion. Instead of slicing the prints horizontally, he generated a print path that follows the geometry and goes up in a spiral.
Here are couple pictures taken during the two last tutorial sessions. Promising breakthroughs from several students. Time to create a believable proposal (including large model and drawings) for Burning Man or any other festival.
Exciting Thursday as usual! Here are pictures of some of the best work we’ve seen yesterday. Students now have two weeks to explore their systems before the first crit which marks the end of our Brief01:Systems.
After posting about the book explaining basic concepts of computational design, The Nature of Code by Daniel Shiffman, I thought it would be helpful to convert all the example into Grasshopper files. Well here you go: Jake Hebbert has done it on youtube, exciting tutorials using python for Grasshopper. Here are couple example of tutorials extracted from Jake’s youtube channel:
Great Thursday tutorials at Westminster! Thank you to former DS10 students George Hintzen, Joe Magri and Chris Mount for their presentation on their trip to the Burning Man festival last summer. We have just started Brief02: Template. Students will start designing a temporary structure for the Burning Man festival or an Open-Source Construction Set.
