[  ] Workshop Title

Parametric Modelling for Architectural Design using Cinema4D

[  ] Key Software / Tech to be taught

Maxon Cinema4D + Corona Renderer

[  ] Workshop Description

This workshop focuses on using Cinema4d for Architectural Design within a procedural workflow using C4D powerful parametric modeling tools The workshop will introduce participants to polygonal mesh and hard surface modeling techniques, Remeshing and morphing techniques to create parametric and responsive facades controlled by fields. Using 'mograph' tools and drive them by effectors and fields in combination with 'volume builder' and 'volume mesher' to create organic shapes. Deeper dive into volume builder using noise shaders, formula fields, and particles simulation with force fields to create complex objects. The workshop will also provide a basic introduction to Architectural presentation with 'Corona Renderer' focusing on lighting techniques, camera positioning, and simple materials.

[  ] Tutor Details

Ayoub Ahmad is a Dubai based Architect & Computational designer interested in complex geometries, generative design, and exploring the ability to connect various design workflows with computational strategies, and parametric modeling in order to facilitate design projects complexities. An expert in using Cinema4D tool-kits to create parametric models of a variety of geometries, Ayoub finds his interest in intersections of architecture & art to create artistic renditions through architectural spatial objects. As a 3D Designer, he loves to create visual art through architectural mediums by simplifying workflows in Cinema4D, among other tools.
