Intricate Correlations - Workshops and Symposium

















"Intricate Correlations - Intensification of Relations
Workshops and Symposium On Digital Design Processes in Obergurgl / Tirol


Conducted by Prof. Patrik Schumacher the institute for experimental architecture.hochbau at Innsbruck University/Austria has set its focus on script based and parametric design research within the last years, aiming to explore new design methods in order to advance the field of contemporary digital architectural design. During this time, various new approaches to digital design were developed, iteratively tested, improved and applied in different architectural scales, the urban scale, the building scale and the ergonomic scale. Research was carried out parallel to and coordinated accordingly by Patrik Schumacher at Design Research Laboratory (DRL, Architectural Association London), and at Studio Hadid (University of Applied Arts Vienna)."

Open Generative Design














Segnalo l'interessantissima iniziativa creata da Sivam Krish "Open generative Design - CAD independant Generative Design Frame Work".
"Why CAD independent ? Generative Design works on top of CAD. There are many types of CAD tools. Different tools are good for different tasks. It is best to generate designs at a schematic level. This way schemes can used for a variety of similar design problems. They can also be used across CAD platforms. More importantly they can be shared and built upon."
"The aim is to develop platform independent algorithms which can be used to browse through solution spaces of various parametric definitions. The algorithms will be written in Excel and special add-on will be developed for each parametric modeling package." [via Peer produced Space]

Apomechanes 2010 studio - seminar & workshop









Apomechanes 2010 studio [seminar and workshop] will be held from the 19th of July till the 6th of August. Apomechanes is an intensive 3-week computational design studio held each summer in Athens, Greece.

The studio is devoted to furthering techniques and concepts of algorithmic processes as means for design and fabrication. Apomechanes brings together individuals from diverse backgrounds and fields of study to discuss, exchange and collaborate on projects that investigate modes of algorithmic and machinic processes in architectural design. At present computational techniques are predominantly employed in the optimization, rationalization or surface decoration of more traditionally created wholes. This research instead focuses on the inherent potential of computation to generate space and of algorithmic procedures to engage self-organization in the design process. During the workshop, participants create their own custom algorithms leading to the fabrication of working full-scale prototypes appropriate to their research trajectories. Participants engage closely with computational processes in order to develop an aesthetic and intuition of complexity that resides in a balance between design intent and emergent character.

Co-de-iT - Conditional Proliferations - GH Workshop - Roma











Conditional Proliferations

Grasshopper workshop Level I – parametric & generative design
Roma - 07-11 giugno 2010 [.] Descrizione

La proliferazione è una modalità di occupazione dello spazio. In dipendenza dal proprio modo di interazione ambientale, gli edifici possono essere distrubuiti e/o aggregati in modalità appropriate in modo da accumulare o disperdere gli effetti della loro interazione e il proprio impatto sull'evoluzione delle relazioni future. A livelli più bassi si può, ad esempio, considerare la distribuzione di componenti o caratteristiche lungo un involucro.
Approcci basati su unità funzionali operano una proliferazione basata sulla ripetizione indifferenziata e insensibile all'ambiente, risultando in una discretizzazione di matrice convenzionale e nella separazione tra edifici, edifici e contesto o spazi interni ed esterni; un diverso tipo di approccio, basato sulla condizione (termine usato nella sua doppia accezione di indicatore dinamico della tendenza di sviluppo dell'ecosistema e in quella causale – if a then b), introduce una forma di proliferazione che sfida e scioglie la dicotomia artificiale: molte piante crescono ovunque le condizioni portino ad esse beneficio, senza riguardo per limiti codificati nello spazio in cui si sviluppano. Le implicazioni sulla negoziazione dello spazio e sulla definizione di soglia sono notevoli; il sistema produce un campo armonicamente articolato e differenziato di fenotipi a partire dal genotipo attraverso un processo di "estetica delle forze" guidata attraverso lo strumento digitale.
A livello urbano questo può tradursi nella proliferazione di infrastrutture o di spazi che mettono in discussione la concezione statica di "confine" e "unità" in favore di modelli in grado di generare una gamma più estesa di inflessioni tra livelli di complessità e indirizzarli per abilitare e rendere accessibili potenzialità d'uso a loro volta articolate e complesse.
Il tema sarà dipanato attraverso le giornate del workshop sviluppando aspetti teorici e tecnici dell'approccio parametrico generativo, con particolare attenzione a strategie di design urbano basate su caratteristiche endogene (vincoli interni del sistema) ed esogene (fattori ambientali) allo scopo di stimolare l'esplorazione di soluzioni sistemiche innovative.

Il numero dei partecipanti è stabilito tra le 15 e le 20 persone per offrire un tutoraggio proficuo ed una effettiva esperienza di learning ad ogni iscritto.

supermanoeuvre


















"SUPERMANOEUVRE is an architectural practice that sees computation as a means of opportunistically collaborating with the heterogeneity and flux of social, cultural and ecological substrates. Employing both genetic and phenotypical strategies of formation in which multiple intelligences and behaviours compete for the gift of instantiation, supermanoeuvre seeks to move beyond the diagram as the dominant of architectural understanding. The resulting complex and adaptive morphologies achieve their definition performatively as the emergent outcome of highly specific architectural concerns embedded within generating rulesets. The practice was co-founded in 2006 by Dave Pigram [New York] and Iain Maxwell [London] as a collaborative studio through which contemporary architectures may be engaged. This blog is intended as a active repository of knowledge pertaining to contemporary architectural resources, techniques and theory. It is an open platform intended for not only our collaborators, peers and students, but also for the greater design community."

Un blog che non ha bisogno di presentazioni dove sono condivise moltissime risorse dedicate allo scripting in processing, rhinoscript e con una sezione appena aperta dedicata a futuri script in python sia per Maya che per Rhino.
