Abstract

This paper investigates the efforts and benefits of the implementation of point
clouds into architectural design processes and tools. Based on a study on the
principal work processes of designers with point clouds the prototypical
plugin/library - Volvox - was developed for the parametric modelling environment
Grasshopper in Rhino. The prototype allows us to discuss the necessary technical
layer for the task, benchmark the tool, and finally to evaluate the benefits, that
this approach has for architectural practice, through a series of use cases.
