Designers are inundated with data. Often times this data is transitory, lost amongst the waves of design iterations, irretrievable for point of comparison between one wave and the next. This workshop will focus on solidifying design data and making it available throughout the design process. In particular, the workshop will look at strategies for analyzing facade designs, capturing the analysis data, and using this data to make informed evaluations and visualizations.
Participants will learn to utilize Grasshopper as a means to analyze various design options. They will then be taken through the process of exporting the data into external software where they will develop dashboards that graph and chart the design outcomes.
