Scripting Workshop

Visual Communications Studio
Fall 2011
Ronnie Parsons & Gil Akos [instructors]

There can be no doubt that the emerging technologies of scripting and parametric modelling are having a profound impact in architectural theory and practice. The Daniels faculty has decided to dive head-first into the new architectural avant garde. As part of a visual communications workshop the faculty invited Ronnie Parsons and Gil Akos of modeLab, two recognized leaders in the field of parametric modeling and research. The results of the workshop include several investigations into the possibilities of form-finding and panelization using 3d parametric models and scripts. The rapidity of form development through these methods is startling, and coupled with a critical design methodology and materials research, represents a tremendous opportunity for advancement in the field of architecture.
