Continuing last week's exercise, this week, we learn how to construct a tower's tructure and skin with various constraints: program area, floor-to-floor height, column size, etc.
Also, by understanding the data tree and format, we learn how to create a space truss structure in grasshopper.

|Parametric Tower Systems||Learning: "Simplify," "Flatten," "Graft." Questions: 1. why need Simplify+Flatten to loft the offset geometry? I tried to loft without them..didn't work. 2. What do "Graft," "Explode," "Simplify" & "Flatten" do?|
|Surface Division Method||Learning: "Para Viewer," a viewer for data structure. Questions: Instead of dividing domain, can I divide surface and retrieve the point data? I tried, but didn't work. Why? & How?|
