Parametric Facade

Revolving Brick Serai

The objective of this assignment is to understand and  generate an existing facade using grasshopper as the parametric tool.

Facade Reference: Revolving Brick Serai


  • Create a reference plane
  • Divide the plane into equal segments
  • Extract centroids of the segments
  • Draw curves on the reference plane
  • Use Pull Point to move the centroids
  • Remap values
  • Center box the points with brick size
  • Rotate the whole geometry

Grasshopper Script


Two iterations in the facade design were done by changing the curves.

Iteration 1

Iteration 2
