Explode_BReps offers a dynamic catalog of over 100 annotated Grasshopper definitions and representations of their potential for the beginning to advanced Grasshopper user. The site brings together ongoing parametric research through the fields of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Fabrication and Structure.

The example and tutorial definitions throughout Explode_BReps describe various relationships making up the physical or intellectual structure of a system, allowing rapid, iterative design decisions efficiently and effectively. It should be possible to imagine these applying to widely differing scales and contexts – from a building’s surface to a complex landform or urban settlement. These examples are a starting point for your own explorations and should be examined for possibilities of creative hacking.
