“As part of my diploma thesis I am doing a football stadium theme, I wanted to use and grasshopper and parametric design to create an interesting facade cover. In this tutorial I would like to show you how to make a parametric stage enclosure. the inspiration is come from Nelson Mandela stadium.”

“In the first step – create 3  points in front view, after that use interpolate to interpolated curve throught a set points. We will be able control these points by X and Z coordinate number slider. “

“In the second step – create two curves that will be rotate in axes.  ->divide curves in equal lenght segments -> merge them -> interpolate these points-> create pipe and loft  “

TUTORIAL_grasshopper6

“But before creating  another 2 curves  with copy, we will make CLUSTER with first one for saving space. Just select the hole sript WITHOUT  number sliders (need control them) and than copy cluster. “

“In the third step – creating copy curve from previous one (the left one) and use LIST ITEM and set to one. -> MERGE previous one (the right one) with the new one -> use LOFT (donť forget use flatten !! ) “

“In the 4th step – use again POLAR ARRAY with MERGED lofts and curves. With POLAR ARRAY we can also create numbers of each geometry and distance. “
