The upcoming rese arch LIVE workshop will deal with digital interpretation of basic composition principles observed in the urban structure and architectural languague of Paris. Participants will be guided through methods of generative design with Grasshopper in a 3 day workshop taught by Ján Pernecký and Tomáš Tholt ending up in an individual proto-project. The workshop will cover the basic workflow of parametric design in Grasshopper, continued with more advanced recursive and iterative methods of Anemone and other plugins.The workshop will be held entirely in English.
Founder or the rese arch initiative, teaching programming to the artists at the rese arch GRASSHOPPER Sessions, at universities in SK, CZ, IT, PL, ES and at workshops Europe-wide, researching generative processes in the context of art and architecture theory. In 2012 creator and curator of Asking Architecture, the Slovak and Czech pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia.
Graduated from Faculty of Architecture, Slovak University of Technology in 2014, in the department of environmental and experimental architecture. He studied as an exchange student of architecture in Madrid (ETSAM UPM). During his studies he took part in several national and international competitions and workshops. He continues in postgradual studies at the FA STU in the field of emergent and generative design approaches in architecture. He works as an architect, teacher and tutor of 3D graphic software. Co-organized and took part in several research projects from the rese arch LAB series, which are directly linked to his research of emergent fabrication. www.fa.stuba.sk

The participants do not need to have an experience with Rhinoceros and Grasshopper, however, previous experience is a plus. Topics chosen for the workshop will directly lead to application in the creative process and achieving desired outputs at the end of the workshop.
The participants will need to bring their own computers with all the required software pre-installed. The computer should run a proper installation of Windows. Mac users are advised to make a proper installation via Bootcamp. Virtualized installations (via Parallels, Virtualbox, VMWare) are highly unreliable. There is no Grasshopper for Mac.
Most of the required software is either for free or is available as a free trial version:
The fee covers only the tuition on 25th to 27th May 2016. Travel expenses, accommodation and food is to be covered by the participants themselves.
Most plugins install the same way - just copy the .gha file into the components folder. To find the folder open Rhinoceros, type “Grasshopper” into the command line and from the top menu pick File > Special folders > Components folder. There are some plugins though, which are not so easy to install, so usually you need to read the readme file before the installation.
