About your host, SoomeenHahm Design
SoomeenHahm Design Ltd. – is a London based design studio focusing on design research and practice tackling the issues of computational paradigm in architecture across multiple scales and perspectives. The research looks at the ecology of computational power, technology and human intuition and see how this collaboration impacts on the design industry and physical environment. Approached from strong academic drives, the office is trying to bridge between academic interest and commercial practices. Practical work produced in the office includes from small products to large architectural and urban design - experts in providing conceptual design solutions. Currently the office is interested in the use of AR/VR to execute complex and precise digitally generated forms. Questioning the future role of human, robot, machine and computer.
- This course is for anyone interested in learning 3D modeling, Grasshopper C# scripting, AR fabrication and architectural drawing. The course is designed for beginner to intermediate level participants, suitable for those design students and professionals who understand design but in need of technical enlightenment. *No previous knowledge required.* - You will need to bring your own laptop with the below software installed (latest version to date): Autodesk Maya, Rhino 3D, Grasshopper, Visual Studio *Installation of all necessary software prior to each class participation is obliged. *
