This study explores work-flow between Rhino and grasshopper to merge meshes. It represents processes ranging from almost the entire process being done in Rhino to the entire process being orchestrated through grasshopper.

This grasshopper definition explores an idea of “cutting” a line in the topography and “lifting” it up to become inhabitable. The “lift” profile corresponds to a graph, allowing for one or several openings.

This definition explores the potential for drainage pavers or plantings to respond according to their z-value, in the hopes of slowing water flow at higher elevations to minimize harmful erosion.

This grasshopper definition explores the idea of cut and fill in construction. One component allows you to draw a line in plan in order to generate a form that begins at the uppermost intersection of the line with the topography. Another part allows you to extrude in the z up and down equally from the mid-height of the line. This estimates a balanced cut and fill operation, which has monetary and efficiency benefits.

This investigation explores aggregation of volumes in order to create inhabitable space. A structure is explored through the use of the plugin component, exoskeleton.
