GenLogix: Generative Logic and Visualization

Generative design represents a revolutionary approach in architecture, where innovation thrives at the intersection of creativity and computational prowess. This workshop delves deep into the underlying principles of generative design, offering participants a glimpse into the dynamic world where design logic evolves through controlled parameters and iterative processes.

The Scope of the Workshop:

  • Generative Design: exploring the logic behind generative design thinking, exploring different directions and pathways for designers to maintain control over grasshopper parameters and design logic. 
  • Animation/Visualization: Showcase and express ideas by mastering animation skills in Grasshopper and Vray, as well as understanding camera motion, animating generative designs, material assignment, and lighting techniques.


The workshop will be divided into two parts:

  • The first part will focus on generative designs and explain their logic and principles. It will be combined with a lecture and demonstration of parametric grasshopper scripts.
  • The second part of the workshop will be an interactive session focusing on Animation and Visualization of the generated outcome. Participants will get hands-on experience in camera motion techniques, material assignment, light manipulation, and motion, fostering a deeper understanding of these concepts.


  • Gain a comprehensive understanding of the underlying principles and logic of generative design thinking.
  • Investigate diverse approaches and pathways for designing generative logic using Kangaroo and Voxels.
  • Acquire animation skills in Grasshopper and Vray to effectively visualize and communicate the power and potential of their designs.
