INTELLIGENT TECTONICS V3.0 WORKSHOP | DesignMorphine 

[SOFIA JUL 09 – JUL 16]

INTELLIGENT TECTONICS V1.0 is an international workshop for parametric design and fabrication strategies. As computational tools are becoming the state of the art in various design disciplines, they do not only enable a logically structured approach to complex design problems but also allow more fluent communication between design phases through the integration of variables in a common digital platform. The workshop will focus on the practical implementation of computational design methods in real-life architecture projects, introducing the participants to the various facets of computational design thinking: from the early design phase, through the schematic planning, to the fabrication and the assembly of the physical artifact. As a product of the workshop, an exhibition booth will be designed that should incorporate a modular, re-usable performative plate structure.

The workshop will take place in collaboration with building industry experts from ETEM and ELVAL-COLOUR. The participants will work in groups on different design proposals, the best of which will receive a prize and the opportunity to be developed further in detail, manufactured and realized alongside a team of experts and workshop participants. Portfolio is mandatory for registration with a maximum of 30 participants! All 30 participants will be selected via portfolio by the tutors. See apply page for portfolio details. Participants who register without a portfolio will not be considered.

DETAILS

INTELLIGENT TECTONICS V1.0 workshop, which builds on the included intensive course Generation and Optimization Techniques in Grasshopper V1.0, will be using Rhino and Grasshopper. The participants will be challenged with embedding real-life physical constraints into the digital design process, with the final goal to produce a feasible parametric design for a usable architectural structure. Parallel to the experiments with generative techniques, the structural qualities of the developed designs will be tested through digital simulations, physical prototypes and working models. During the workshop, the participants will receive both theoretical knowledge of the relevant topics and a practical demonstration of material samples and fabrication methods. The intensive course Generation and Optimization Techniques in Grasshopper V1.0 is included in Intelligent Tectonics V1.0 but can be taken separately if desired.

The best design proposal will receive a prize and the opportunity to be developed further in detail, manufactured and realized alongside a team of experts and workshop participants.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Generative design and parametric modeling in Grasshopper and Rhinoceros 5.0
  • Practical understanding of innovative techniques in computational design and digital fabrication
  • Simulation of material performance in a digital environment

GENERATION AND OPTIMIZATION TECHNIQUES IN GRASSHOPPER V1.0 INTENSIVE COURSE [JUL 09 – JUL 10]

DETAILS

GENERATION AND OPTIMIZATION TECHNIQUES IN GRASSHOPPER V1.0 is a two-day intensive course which will focus on covering the basics of Rhino and Grasshopper, explaining fundamental geometry concepts, introducing different techniques for parametric modeling and offering first insights into algorithms for generating and optimizing complex structures. Different add-ons for Grasshopper (Kangaroo, Weaverbird, Anemone, etc.) will be introduced to demonstrate how the functionality of the software can be extended.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Basic Grasshopper 3D parametric design and interface
  • Entry level structural optimization techniques
  • General introduction to a variety of useful Grasshopper 3D plug-ins

Generation and Optimization Techniques in Grasshopper V1.0 Intensive Course is included in but may be taken separately from Intelligent Tectonics V1.0 Workshop and it will take place from 9 to 10 July, 2016 at the Union of Architects, 11 Krakra Str, Sofia, Bulgaria.
