This livestreamed talk will provide a brief overview of the various tools and techniques available for scripting within structural design and the various applications that it can be adopted for to create efficient workflows within the design process.

The talk will look at the use of Excel, Grasshopper, Dynamo and Digital Projects and use real world project examples to show how programmes were utilised within the project workflows. Attendees will gain an insight into the tools available to them and useful ideas for application.
