Custom Display

Solar analysis of Leshan topography As I’ve been working increasingly within Grasshopper, I’ve gotten more and more reluctant to go through convoluted workflows to produce and process images. The prospect of baking and rendering, processing and exporting a Make2D, distributing lineweights, compositing layers and adjusting color balance has become more offputting than it already was. … Continue reading

Slope Analysis

Steepest Paths down a Topography with Aggregate Runoff Tracing the steepest slopes over a topography has a common mapping exercise within Landscape Urbanism practices (and one which has been used productively by our students at EPFL). It makes for a good scripting exercise because there is really no good way to do it on the … Continue reading

CONTOUR: Visual(izing) Data

Some of my thesis work was recently selected by Contour Journal for their series on data visualization and its relationship to research methods among architects and designers. My submission draws from the custom mesh and lineweight display scripts for grasshopper preview geometry posted here earlier. The post—and the rest of the ongoing Visual(izing) Data series—can … Continue reading
