Procedural Assemblies V1.0 will explore the opportunities provided by aggregation and growth algorithms with Grasshopper plug-ins in an effort to investigate how multiple living cells can create clusters based on bottom up deployment strategies. We will focus on iterative processes which allow the creation of custom workflows to simulate, quantify and visualize the living cells acting together as a system. The primary tool used in this webinar will be the Wasp plugin for Grasshopper which lets you design generatively via discrete elements that aggregate together based on spatial fields and stochastic sets of part to part connection graph instructions. Students will design multiple low poly aggregation units which will represent the bounds of more detailed units. The low poly aggregation units will be assigned sets of connection rules and run through Wasps solver to generate multi orientable aggregated unit clusters. Multiple iterations of result clusters will be generated and evaluated by running Wasp with various fluctuating parameters. Detailed living cell units will then be transferred to their corresponding low poly aggregation units in the clusters to result in refined architectural systems.
