The Land Kit plugin for Grasshopper is a great way for landscape designers, architects, and engineers to take advantage Grasshopper for landscape design workflows. Learn about Topo Kit, our tools for topographic site design that include features like retaining walls, plan areas, and dynamic analysis. Find out how to save lots of time designing custom paving and patterns with Paving Kit. And, finally, learn how you can create ecological and rules-driven design explorations with Plant Kit.

Ben Summay is a design technologist with expertise in 3D modeling, rendering, and computational design. Following his graduate education, Ben worked at a landscape design firm for two years where he worked as designer and project manager. During this time he worked on residential and commerical properties while also introducing new 3D modeling and visualization tools to the firm. Upon joining the team at LANDAU Design+Technology, Ben became one of the early users of Land Kit. At LANDAU, Ben has aided in advancing the implementation of computational and visualization tools for projects of varying scale and complexity.

Ben earned a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies from the University of Kentucky.
