GRASSHOPPER STRUCTURAL MASTERY
A lecture series in partnership with Lemanoosh.
From fundamental principles to advanced technical ability, journey through the
fascinating world of structural design.
INTRODUCTION VIDEO FOR STRUCTURAL MASTERY COURSE
RENDER OF BEAM-BASED LATTICE MIDSOLE
RENDER OF TRIPLY PERIODIC MINIMAL SURFACE WATCH
RENDER OF VORONOI HEADPHONES
FOCUSED SHOTS OF PRODUCT CASE STUDIES
Due to the niche nature of this topic, the learning landscape is often limited to
scattered blog posts of very specific case studies.
Even for those within the industry, it’s possible for design freedom to be restricted by pre-packaged solutions of fixed inputs and outputs— offering no real grasp over the entire structure.
With no central resource that offers a truly comprehensive teaching of these geometries, we’ve decided to build a thorough lecture series that spans the entire subject matter from
fundamental principles to advanced technical ability.

A UNIVERSAL FRAMEWORK
Before we even open a design software, let’s address why we’re even creating these structures. Why do they exist? Where did they come from?
Even when we do start modeling, we’ll be building from absolutely nothing. From scratch. Starting with the fundamental building blocks
From points and lines to beams and surfaces, what you have now constructed is a universal framework - one that is fully within your control and adaptable to any concept, unlocking an entirely new realm of creative possibilities
