The Danish architect Daniel Nielsen has a broad experience with Architectural Sustainability and the integration of parametric 3D modeling and simulation tools into the process. He have worked on projects at various scales - from buildings to planning, and have been involved in research and education programs at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Technical University of Denmark.
The rese arch Grasshopper® sessions are unique for their thorough explanation of all the features, which creates a sound foundation for your further individual development or direct use in the practice. The webinars are divided into four groups: Essential, Advanced, Iterative and Architectural. If you are a Rhinoceros 3D or Grasshopper® newcomer, you are advised to take all the Essential sessions before proceeding to the next level. If none of the proposed topics suit your needs or if you require special treatment, you can request a custom-tailored 1on1 session. All sessions are held entirely in English.
The webinars are series of on-line live courses for people all over the world. The tutor broadcasts the screen of his computer along with his voice to the connected spectators who can ask questions and comment in real time. This makes webinars similar to live workshops and superior to tutorials.
