Re-Modeling Esplanade Theatres using Rhino Grasshopper and Sketchup7

The Esplanade Theatres on the Bay is located in the island nation of Singapore.Esplanade Theatres on the Bay is a riverbank building which is positioned on 6 hectares of prime riverside land along the Marina Bay near the mouth of the Singapore River. The Esplanade Theatres on the Bay in Singapore was constructed purposely to be the centre for performing arts in the city with a diverse culture. It was designed by two architectural firms working in conjunction: by DP Architects (DPA) of Singapore and the London-based Michael Wilford & Partners (MWP),The unique architectural design has been said to have an appearance similar to either a durian (a tropical fruit) or the eyes of a fly. Many Singaporeans casually refer to the Esplanade as "The Durian".

This is the first time I use grasshopper and soap bubble tool. From the beginning, I research the architecture and analyse which software is better to remodel it.Then learn the software the blog.Although the model looks like very difficult,there
are many components,after remodeling,I understand use grasshopper to model it is not easy.It is a good chance to learn the two software grasshopper and sketchup7.
