Folding Techniques in Rhino for UG2

Here is a link to a video tutorial to supplement a workshop that I did for the UG2 Design Studio.  The assignment asks the students to consider the role of folding as a technique.  Click the image to launch the video.

Exciting Courses this Term

I'll am super excited to be teaching two digital design courses this term at Taubman College:

-Intro to Robotic Fabrication: this course will be using an Agilus work cell to explore the potential for digital fabrication and manufacturing tools to re-inform our understanding of architectural models as tools for design speculation.

-Generative Computing: this course will build on the successes of the Virtual Engagement seminar offered to the MS_DT students but will intensify the discussion of randomness as a tool for the production of multiple and varied populations of design.
