Collaborative Workshop (Michael Pryor + Sushant Verma) – Bridge Design – Using Grasshopper3d + MAYA
12:15 – 13:45 GMT
Duration – 90 Minutes
Michael Pryor & Sushant Verma would run a collaborative cross-platform workshop that shuffles Computational Design methods from one technique to another, integrating to build a Bridge through multiple techniques of computational overlaps. Each tutor shall build upon the programme based on rational decision-making aided by computational tools, right from seating design, sightline optimization, structural skin design, environmental design integration, panelization, etc. as a part of an integrated and collaborative process. Real-time collaboration would be demonstrated between the tutors and with workshop participants to design a complex bridge using computational design methods. Taking cues from multi-scalar workshops taught in NEXT 1.0 and NEXT 2.0, this workshop transcends into new spatial experimentation for designers.
