Recap: DPA Cauberg-Huygen Case Study

On the 22nd of November, Mollier members seized a great opportunity and headed to Rotterdam for a Parametric Design case study, organized by Cauberg-Huygen.
The aim of the workshop was familiarising ourselves with Rhino, Grasshopper, Ladybug and Honeybee. Ideally, by the end of the day, they were to be associated with something other than insects.

At the ungodly hour of 8 am, four cars rolled out towards Rotterdam.
At 9:45, we received a warm welcome from the creative director of Cauberg-Huygen, Anne Cowan, who then proceeded to elaborate on the challenge of the day.
Upon establishing a modest goal of constructing a Pontsteiger-like building on Mars, we formed four groups and began brainstorming.
An important aspect of this process was the availability of the specialists from Cauberg-Huygen, who remained action-ready till the very end.
Five hours and several sandwiches later, four crazy ideas were presented to the organizers of the event.
Admittedly, there was not enough time for the development of a foolproof design, but there was just enough to kickstart a learning process that, in the future, has potential to flourish.

The day was concluded with a relaxing evening full of beers, as well as sodas, for the unfortunate drivers.
