Aim of the exercise – to learn how to achieve a complex design of a façade through a series of simple steps.

Goal – to create a simple grasshopper definition which would help to understand the logic used in the existing façade design (in particular case – Crematorium Heimolen by KAAN Architecten) Exercise agenda:

1. Define the plane with a size of the façade (34000 x 9000 mm)

2. Divide the plane to many squares of 1000 x 1000 mm

3. Create a curve with attractor points to define the parameterized openings

4. Create the depth of squared segments“SO.3 Computational Design. Assignment 01 – Parametric Façade”
