The 2021 Bake-off Series explores different themes and topics over a one-week-long course. We are inviting architects, engineers, designers to participate in this workshop focusing on parametric structures and design. Participants will be asked to develop a designed structural object within the parametric environment of Grasshopper. Clemens Preisinger, Zeynep Aksöz, and Matthew Tam will guide you through a series of tutorials in Karamba3D, design critiques, and review sessions.

This May, the focus is on structural shells. The course will cover essential methods of design, analysis, and optimization of shells using Karamba3D. The methods will be tested and further investigated through a case study, which will be developed during the course by each participant. The tutorial sessions will be accompanied by working sessions where the participants can ask specific questions to instructors.

Microsoft Teams platform will be the host of this online course. The course will be in English.

What can you expect to achieve at the end of the workshop?

  • Learn the basics of using Karamba3D
  • Design, develop and optimization of structures
  • Set up a parametric structural system using shell elements
  • Work with loads, load cases, and load combinations
  • Interpreting results
  • Create basic animations from Rhino/Grasshopper
  • Create an interactive cloud model

Course Outline

There are five sessions in total, Monday-Friday: 9:00-11:30 am CEST (8:00-10:30 am BST | 3:00-5:30 pm CST | 5:00-5:30 pm AET). Each day there will be a tutorial session, a short work session, and a feedback session.
