Graziano Enzo Marchesani

PhD in Sustainable Urban Planning

Welcome to My World of Learning, Researching and Exploration. I am Graziano Enzo Marchesani, immersed in a journey of academic and professional growth at the University of Camerino (UNICAM), exploring the vast fields of design and architecture. A Journey of sharing has led me to serve as a lecturer, turning each lesson into a shared exploration of design's endless vistas with my students. Explore to grow encapsulates my continuous research endeavours, contributing to academic dialogues through publications and presentations. Tools to Express highlights my venture into the digital realm, mastering various CAD modelling, rendering, and software development tools to bring ideas to life. Together to discover embodies my openness to new connections and discussions. Feel free to reach out to exchange ideas or explore potential collaborations, as together, we can traverse new horizons.

Welcome to the Parametric realm, where the synergy between design and code unfolds. Here, you'll discover a collection of my explorations within visual programming, scripting, and more; I delve into the boundless potential that parametric design holds. Each piece showcased here is a testament to the power of computational tools in sculpting innovative solutions and pushing the boundaries of innovation.

DataTree Constructor

DataTree Constructor

This script, titled DataTree Constructor, is designed to organize a series of elements into a Grasshopper DataTree, useful for structured data management in algorithmic modeling environments. It takes two lists: one of elements and the other of corresponding paths, ensuring they are of the same length. Then, it assigns each element to its specific path within the DataTree. If the lists do not match in length, the script alerts the user instead of proceeding. Once completed, it returns the organized DataTree as 'newTree' and prints a confirmation message. It's a useful automation for those working with complex data in Grasshopper, facilitating the creation of orderly and accessible data structures.
