You've all probably heard about The eVolo Skyscraper Competition which is an annual call to architects, designers, and urban planners around the globe to explore new ideas for vertical living. In this tutorial, we will cover how to quickly create an Evolo Tower winning project from 2018 using Grasshopper only. It is called Foldable Skyscraper for Disaster Zones designed by Damian Granosik, Jakub Kulisa, Piotr Pańczyk. The project is based on a tensile structure so you will learn how to combine Grasshopper with physics solver Kangaroo.

The extended version of this tutorial will be focused on rendering and animation with V-Ray. You will learn how to create and apply V-Ray materials, how to add a V-Ray infinite plane, the lighting, and how to import named views from Rhino into Grasshopper and use them from renderings as V-Ray Cameras. Also, you will learn how to combine Kangaroo with V-ray, and how to render each iteration and create animation from them.
