Course Theme | theNADO

In this course, we will learn the process of creating architectural compositions using simulations that imitate natural phenomena - Tornadoes. The course is designed to let you experience different workflow strategies using the generative approaches of Houdini. We will learn to gain command over controlling your geometries through various procedural techniques. The course is designed for beginners and intermediate users with no prerequisites. The course is devised in two parts A & B.

PART A: Creating a Structure, Terrain and Simulations

Creation of the Structure and Terrain

We will learn the process of creating a structure and the ground terrain where the geometry is placed. After creating the base structure, we will analyze the complete geometry and it's points of intersection with the terrain.

You will get deeper insights on working with various geometries and their intersections with other geometries.

The next step will be to develop a simulation script and run it over the main geometry. This is where the magic happens! This phase will be further broken down into three areas, where we learn different techiques of geometry creation with the help of Foreach-loops, VEX Scripting and VOPs.

In addition, we will also learn the process of exporting your geometries. We will familiarize ourselves with the various parameters, attributes that are necessary for exporting your geometries to other programs. (calculating the UV's and normals).

PART B: Post Processing, Rendering, and Visualization
In addition to learning the workflows using Houdini, we will also learn the process of importing our geometry to Autodesk Maya and set up a visualization scene.

We will use Arnold Renderer and develop a scene, create materials, set up lighting, and render the whole project.

Mümin Keser

INSTRUCTOR, UIBK Innsbruck

Mümün Keser is a speculative architect and computational designer based in Innsbruck, Austria.His interests lie in data-driven design techniques and experimental investigations. In his works he places himself in the bridge between real and virtual and tries to intertwine these two opposing areas. His most recent works are mainly concerned with bringing media into architectural expression and creating fully immersive and adaptive hyperspaces based on the user. His inquisitive nature as a human being helps him to stay interested, learn new techniques and face new challenges. During his studies and career he had the opportunity to work in many different projects and learn different softwares. He also held workshops in various fields such as architectural design, computational design, storytelling and visualization.

What Our Participants Say

 

I am really happy to have participated to this event and I admire the high level of knowledge you provided to us. I loved the subject, the organization of the whole process, the consistency over the target and your willingness to support us and answer every question. Keep on like this!
- Katerina Touska, Houdini for Architects 1.0

 

Loved this class. it was just the crash course I needed to feel comfortable with a little part of houdini.
- Abhi Thati, Synthetic Simulations

Really interesting course because of focus on architectural concepts and not only on random generative things as it often happens!
- Kyryll, Synthetic Simulations
