During the summer school we will make extensive use of the software Rhino and Grasshopper. Plugins developed in house will also be provided to deal with the design issues proposed in the summer school.

The summer school will welcome both the beginner and the advanced user of Grasshopper.  The beginner might be required an additional effort in the initial days.  Guidance and several training exercises will be provided. Here below some example of tutorials that will be offered to level up the knowledge of grasshopper in the class.
