MODEL COMPLEX, ORGANIC ARCHITECTURAL FORMS

From classic NURBS workflows to the new Subdivision modeling tools in Rhino 7, learn the essential modeling commands and workflows to achieve organic forms and surfaces.

FOUR PROJECTS, FOUR LEVELS WITH INCREASING DIFFICULTY

The workshop covers four projects over two days - each project builds on knowledge gained from the previous one. The last project, delivered in two sessions, combines and expands on all material learned to form a small-scale dwelling!

MASTER NON-LINEAR FORMS

Dreading non-linear forms? No more! Delve into the vast surface creation toolset and learn to utilize it to create a variety of flowing architectural forms.

JUST SHOW UP AND LEARN!

Students will be provided with a reference manual containing notes on all tools covered during the various sessions. No need to take notes during the sessions or even bring a laptop. All equipment and software provided during the workshop!

BUILD ON EXISTING BASE KNOWLEDGE

Basic familiarity with rhino’s interface and navigation is needed - this ensures that every session of the workshop can be dedicated to understanding the commands and developing the projects!

WHO IS IT FOR?

student

ARCHITECTURE AND INTERIOR DESIGN STUDENTS

We created this workshop because students of design repeatedly requested it! Many students feel that their creative output is limited by their struggle with Rhino, and we therefore designed this workshop specifically to address those requests, and teach students workflows that will set them apart from their peers!
