DeCodingSpaces Toolbox for Grasshopper is a collection of analytical and generative components for algorithmic architectural and urban planning. The toolbox has been released by the Computational Planning Group (CPlan) and is a result of long term collaboration between academic institutions and praxis partners across the globe with the common goal to increase the efficiency and quality of architecture and urban planning. The DS Toolbox is Non-Profit collaborative project. It is Work in Progress being conducted by many authors with different background, career paths and levels of involvement. On one hand, we believe that the combination of individual contributions is what makes this toolbox so powerful, on the other hand we have to deal with the “imperfections” of large collaboration. Here, we kindly ask for your patience and understanding. We are very much looking for your feedback, hints and bug reports and will do our best to continuously improve.
