How to Model St Mary Axe in Rhino

 For all of you architecture students out there, this is an iconic building designed by Foster and Partners located in London, England. In these architecture tutorials, I’ll be showing a simple modeling technique using LunchBox for Grasshopper and using some of its features to create the building glass divisions.

In addition, we’re going to model skeleton construction and floors throughout the building. We’ll go over some rhino commands such as revolve, uniform scale, pipe, etc. One of the interesting aspects about Rhino for architecture is that it can be used for both 2D drawings, 3D renderings, and project presentation.

    For the floors, you could also use Contour command which is easier
