The workshops will introduce the optimization into the algorithmic design process that is enabled in the visual programming environment – Grasshopper3D. Till today more than 500 students have participated in all editions of Architektura Parametryczna Workshops!
Architektura Parametryczna Workshops Optimization Warsaw 2016 FAQ
18-20 November 2016 (Friday-Sunday)
HOW LONG DO THE WORKHSOPS LAST?
The workshops last in total 21 hours.
Friday 1-7PM , Saturday 10AM -7PM (with lunch break), Sunday 10AM -7PM (with lunch break)
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
On Saturday the optimization processes with solar, views and structural analysis will be explored. We will be discovering optimal solutions with the help of plug-ins such as Galapagos, Silvereye, Octopus, Karamba and Ladybug. In the Sunday morning we will learn how to present the results of the optimization: creating catalogues of solutions and printing the optimization graphs. In the afternoon participants will have time for the development of the personal project.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The workshops cost 680 PLN (or 160€) for Early Bird payments and 800 PLN (or 190€) for the regular payments.
The 3-person group – 1600 PLN (or 440€ )
For those who are certain that they will attend the workshops, we have a special Early Bird offer till 30th of September 2016.

Perquisites: the basic knowledge of Rhino and Grasshopper3D.
Plug-ins: Silvereye, Octopus, Ladybug, Karamba. Weaverbird. Python GH
The main aim of the 21-hour workshops is to give the participants the understanding of how the optimization process can be used in practice and how it can help in solving everyday design problems. The practical exercise will be supported with the short lectures explaining the theoretical background of the optimization algorithms.
The general program of the Optimization Warsaw 2016 Workshops*:
1. Optimization of the facade geometry with solar analysis.
2. Optimization of the roof structures with Karamba.
3. Finding the optimal configuration of the space frame structures with Karamba.
4. Discovering the best location or/and geometry of the building in accordance to the best views from the plot.
5. Presentation of the discovered solutions.
*Some of the exercises might be changed.
