REACTION workshop 1401 / RELOADED Advanced Grasshopper workshop with evolutionary solvers “Solving a problem is the transformation of a given situation into a desired one. Evolutionary problem solvers are inspired from a model of natural evolutionary processes where organisms are ‘solutions’ to ‘problems’ set up by the environment.” Thomas Philip Runarsson VIDEO of REACTION 1401 The first REACTION 1401 took place in Paris on 14-16th of March 2014. Due to a large number of applications, we were unable to accept a lot of submission. That’s why we have decided to replicate the workshop on 27-29th of June 2014. Registration details below. INTRO Design in contemporary architecture focuses on being evolutionary, temporary, changeable, but above all adaptable and customizable to the socio-technological contexts and to people’s needs. By working in tandem with new technologies through potentially endless approximations, designers can more easily and precisely ensure that every morphological decision responds to the multiple requirements of different environments. REACTION 1401 / JUNE 2014 REACTION 1401 focuses on understanding and controlling the logics of genetics or evolutionary algorithms. Those evolutionary solvers apply the principles of evolution found in nature to find an optimal solution to a problem. We will explore the potentials of those design techniques. Environmental and energetic data will be the main inputs of those processes that will drive our design choices towards flexible, progressive, interactive solutions. SOFTWARE & SKILLS Basic modeling skills in Rhino and Grasshopper are required. No specific environmental modelling design skills are required (although an introductory knowledge of environmental modelling is welcome). Participants should bring their own laptop with a pre-installed software. The software package needed has no additional cost for the participant (Rhino can be downloaded as evaluation version, Grasshopper and plugins are free). These softwares are subject to frequent updates, so a download link to the version used in the workshop will be sent to the participants a few days before the workshop. The main plugins for Grasshopper that will be used are: Heliotrope, Galapagos, Goat, Meshedit, Mesh+, Elk, gHowl. They are all available here. OPEN LECTURE As always, we organize a free open lecture the days before or just after the workshop. Subscribe to our newsletter to get notified about the event.
