Course Brief |Blender for Architects

Blender's tools are a perfect mixture between the freedom to create in Maya with the inherent and very easy-to-use parametricism that can achieve results like Grasshopper, while preserving some of the precision that people may be used to from Rhino and Sketchup. This course focuses on how to work with subdivision modeling with Blender's modifiers so we create a small part that is then radially aligned with the rest of the parts. The setup is parametric and very flexible. The same process can be used to generate larger forms and massings like buildings and towers.

This course is aimed for beginners and intermediate users alike. Also, if you happen to be experienced with Maya or Rhino subdiv tools, you may be interested in this course to learn how to apply those techniques within Blender.

We also touch briefly upon Geometry Nodes, which is closer to Houdini than Grasshopper, but can do a lot of the work that can be done in Grasshopper also, but due to working with meshes instead of nurbs, Blender handles large geometry sets much better than Rhino.

If you may be used to working with Maya, Blender offers a very similar subdiv (3 mode) modeling experience, with the added benefit of much more inherent parametricism offered by Modifiers, Geometry Nodes, and some super amazing addons from the community. The same polygonal and topological modeling concepts apply to Blender, so you already know the basics!

Also, Blender Cycles offers V-Ray quality renders without additional software and more fees. Blender can be used to model fluid, organic and parametric forms like Zaha Hadid Architects and MAD architects, and it can be used to model voxelated shapes like BIG Architects. It is quite good at doing many things!

Meet Your Instructor

Dimitar Pouchnikov

AA DRL, UH Studio Academy, United Kingdom

Dimitar Pouchnikov, AIA, is a US architect practising in London and globally. His design sensibility is shaped by his experiences on both sides of the Atlantic, combining British sensitivity with American pragmatism. Dimitar holds a postgraduate M.Arch degree from the Architectural Association, Design Research Lab Programme and a 5 year professional B.Arch degree from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, in Philadelphia. His design philosophy is rooted at the intersection of design, a sense of place, and technology. This allows him to constantly explore experimental workflows to enable new forms of design, yet remain committed to the architectural impact. Dimitar is a designer and educator, working on large projects throughout the world, combining computational design knowledge to create architecturally significant places. In his daily practice, he explores how open source digital tools can democratise and further advance design processes to create better environments to live, work, learn, and play. Dimitar is founder and director of UH Studio.
