Siemen Cuypers was one of the designers on this fun project, the Technical Museum Foyer.
It’s the recently opened reception and shop of the technical museum in Oslo.

Using Rhino to create the structures, Siemen Cuypers did the 3D-modeling and CNC file preparation, and part of the CNC production. He provided assembly guides for Artisan Tech, the skilled people assembling, installing, and finishing the structures.

India Node: Robots in Construction
July 1-14, 2019
Pune, India

IaaC GSS2019 India is a full-time, two-week course that provides both practical and theoretical knowledge. Expert tutors will lead the course, with lectures by renowned professionals and academics relevant to the topics to the course topics. These will be broadcast in the different cities: Barcelona, New York City, Hong Kong, Pune, Moscow, Tehran, Melbourne, Beirut, Budapest, Shanghai, Quito and more, all globally connected. 

Introductory sessions are organized in topics ranging from parametric and associative modeling in Rhino/Grasshopper to prototyping and electronics with Arduino. During the workshop participants will have the opportunity to explore form-finding strategies through theoretical and practical scripting sessions with computational design tools, investigating the material and its structural implications through KUKA 6 Axis robotic tools and scale model making. Later, they will be built as a series of digitally fabricated architectural elements in 1:1 scale, embedded with smart sensorial interaction. 

The two-week course will be led by tutors from leading design research programs, IAAC/Barcelona, BNCA/Pune and professionals in architecture and engineering. 

The host institute for the GSS 2019 India program is Digital Fabrication Lab (DFL) curated by Department of Digital Architecture at Dr. Bhanuben Nanavati College of Architecture for Women (BNCA), Pune, Maharashtra, India.

About IaaC GSS19
GSS19 aims to empower the bonds with the community members, placing them in strategic positions which allows GSS to take place simultaneously in different nodes (cities) around the world, including Barcelona, New York City, Hong Kong, Pune, Moscow, Tehran, Melbourne, Beirut, Budapest, Shanghai, Quito and more. 

XirusCAD is a new Rhino plug-in that simulates immediate responsiveness to a broad range of geometrical parameters key for complex 3D modeling such as: 

  • direct control of tangents 
  • direct control of curvature 
  • direct access to the digital object through interpolating control points 
  • watertight junctions with immediate smoothness control 
  • subdivision and local refinement with smoothness control
  • more localized control than NURBS and fewer parameters

Join Zsuzsanna Püspöki for a complete presentation on XirusCAD at CorsiRhino (Milano, Italy) on April 23, 2019
The workshop will also be streamed online.

June 10-13, 2019
9:00 AM-12:30 PM each day (PDT)

Course Description:

Instructor Andres Gonzalez will explore the intermediate concepts of generative modeling in Rhino using Grasshopper. He will apply these concepts to Grasshopper intermediate design and development in numerous real-life examples with you.

This course is for design professionals looking to efficiently learn concepts and features of Grasshopper at an accelerated pace in an instructor-led online environment. 

The class will be in English using GoToTraining software. All sessions are recorded for your review after the training.

You will need one of these:
  • Rhino 6 for Windows, which includes Grasshopper
  • Rhino 5 for Windows and the free Grasshopper plug-in
  • Rhino 5.4 for Mac, which includes Grasshopper
Rhino 6 for Windows is recommended, and it will be used by the instructor in the training. Students are welcome to use Grasshopper for Mac. Differences between the platforms are minor and will be discussed.

Prerequisite: This course requires Intro to Grasshopper training or equivalent. 

Grasshopper for Architectural Projects | May 6-9, 2019

Project Workflows | June 3-4 and June 10-11, 2019

MIAUHAUS and COAM are organizing two workshops to explore different types of workflow for the research, realization, and presentation of Architectural Projects. Join Sergio del Castillo Tello, architect, computational designer, MIAUHAUS member and Authorized Rhino Trainer and learn how to use Rhinoceros and Grasshopper to improve your current workflow.
