I recently gave a talk at Portland State University’s Fridays@4 lecture series. I focused on the relationship between parametrics and performance analysis and gave demos of using Grasshopper, GECO, and Ecotect. The video in this post – recorded during the talk – is an overview of the process and how we use these tools in practice…
For those of you in the Seattle area, Jason Kelly Johnson of Future Cities Lab in San Francisco will be at the University of Washington for a lunch-time lecture to demo Firefly and show recent projects produced by his lab. Firefly is a software bridge between Grasshopper and the Arduino micro-controller, the internet and a number of other Human Interface devices. It allows near real-time data flow between the 3D digital and physical worlds, and will read/write data to/from internet feeds, remote sensors, connect with machine vision protocols, etc. We have been toying around with Firefly here at LMN and having a lot of fun. Jason Kelly Johnson’s introduction should serve as a great overview of the software and where it’s going.
