This is a grasshopper definition of a simple tower with an added facade system. As the definition itself is quite long, the process of building it is broken down into 3 videos. The first shows the setting up of the simple tower, the second shows the construction of a repeatable facade unit, and the third shows the instantiation of that unit on the tower.
This grasshopper definition is conceptually similar to the 'Placeholder II' pattern. It is structured in two parts: the first part is the definition of the simple tower, while the second part is a definition of a repeatable louvered unit. One of the objectives of this tutorial is to familiarize the user with data management. In this example, in order to successfully instantiate the louvered unit, we will need to manipulate data tree structures.The grasshopper definition can be downloaded here.
