Mapping workflow and existing tools
At the studio we were thinking about the tools we are used to work with and if we could identify and implement new ones in our design workflow.
We have made a map with the free graph-editor gephi to represent and identify the information flows between the tools we could eventually use and we wanted to share it with you.
Softwares, tools in the cloud, rhino plugins, grasshopper components… can often share information using inter-process communication. Tools communicate between each other, in an unidirectionnal or bidirectionnal manner.
This allows a real integrated approach between architecture, structural engineering, lighning design etc..
