    Flux Worshop, San Francisco

    difficultfix Apr 1 '09 3

    This last weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Flux workshop(s) held at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco. They had a series of digital design workshops which included: Intro to Grasshopper, Advance Grasshopper, Rhinoscripting, Digital Project, as well as intro classes to Rhino and Revit. These workshops were hot selling out in as fast as three days. Lucky for me that I am what you call a Rhino Junky (Nerd); always looking out for all updates related to Rhino. I was able to get my first choice a ticket to the advance grasshopper session. The advance grasshopper class was taught by Rajaa Issa (Paneling tools, Archcut) from McNeel, Gil Akos and Ronnie Parsons from StudioMode. The workshop covered advance modeling features such as the new nested list functions as well as VB net scripting.






    While I was there I was were able to see the power of Grasshopper with the exhibit installation that was on display. After the workshops - there was an exit presentation were Andy Payne got to present the involvement grasshopper had with this design and gave us a glimpse of the monster definition (22mb) used to produce this exhibit.

    Some of the other instructors teaching at the work shops:
    Marc Fornes from theverymany - Rhinoscripting
    Andy Payne from Lift architects - Intro to Grasshopper
    Pascal Golay from McNeel - Intro to Rhino

    These workshops were great, the only thing missing was Antisthenes presentation on all things Rhino. I guess that will be next time j/k

      I wish I knew who you were , DF, I would have said hello/ I took Fornes' Rhinoscipt Workshop and had great time. I was sort of envious at that Advanced Grasshopper class though,..

      Fabian,
      Glad to hear that you enjoyed the workshop. Ronnie and I had a great time too. The group we had in the Advanced Grasshopper Workshop had a lot of great energy. Thanks for the link. We will keep an eye out on this blog to see more of your work. Stay in touch.
      Best,
      Gil + Ronnie
