I’m a practicing architect with working experience in award-winning architecture practices in Asia, the US and Europe. In over a decade of professional experience in working with Grasshopper, I’ve encountered every imaginable design problem and have learned the hard way what actually works!
I’ve spent countless hours finding the best ways to approach design problems with Grasshopper, and I share everything on this site so you can save time, money, and headaches on your path.
Real world use
The course has been developed to provide you with processes and approaches that we believe to be of actual, real-world value. We value your time and focus on teaching you what will help with YOUR transformation. We don’t hold back and share every piece of knowledge to provide you with the most value possible.
As designers we believe in creating spaces that promote health and well-being. In order to do that we believe that architects themselves should be leading a healthy, balanced life – we teach Computational Design because we believe that it’s key in reducing repetitive tasks, broadening the creative scope of our work and enabling a healthy work-life balance.
We at hopific love designing. We teach you how to use grasshopper in a way that engages you as a creative designer. We teach you Grasshopper so you can empower your own, personal design language.
We believe that what makes you different is your superpower, and we celebrate and welcome all intersectional identities – from neurodivergence, to religious beliefs, to disabilities and everything in between. We actively invest in and work to build an equitable, inclusive learning environment from the inside out. We encourage you to join our community if you share those values and want to learn from a company with a dynamic, diverse team and clients.
There are countless lessons and tutorials about grasshopper out there but I realized that most of them are focused on getting views and show content that looks eye-catching but that is of very little practical use in everyday professional architecture practice. Often it is very fancy organic shapes that result in mesh geometries that are next to unusable for a real architecture practice. Usually the instructor drops components onto the canvas one by one and builds a script from scratch. At the end as a viewer you may have built the same script as the instructor, but you had no real idea how to build a script yourself. That’s why in my course I explain the foundational knowledge about grasshopper that allows my students to start thinking and developing scripts on their own. Instead of only teaching how to build one particular script, I provide students with the process and framework to build any script they want.
& reach your design potential!
