WS 1: SENSITIVE ROBOTICS

BRIDGING IMPROVISATION TO AUTOMATION

This workshop proposes to explore the relationship between realtime motion tracking and 3Dimensional composite injection in gel. This freehand prototyping approach questions the deterministic nature of automation by introducing intuitive and interpretative impulse within a preconstrained protocol.  

 

 

 

 

WS 2: MIXED REALITY ENVIRONMENTS

FOR ASSEMBLY OF COMPLEX ARCHITECTURAL PROTOTYPES

 This workshop examines how mixed reality technology enables the construction of complex and differentiated architectural assemblages by replacing drawn documentation with 1:1 holographic models overlaid on the fabrication environment.
This approach will be evidenced in the use of Microsoft Hololens headsets to construct a full scale architectural prototype testing ad-hoc and adaptive approaches to digital fabrication and craftsmanship. 

 

 

 

 

WS 3: ON MODELLING GROWTH 

LEARNING THROUGH THE COMPLEXITY
AND THE SIMPLICITY IN FORM & MATTER 

 This workshop will investigate growth through intuitive and analytic explorations with two elements, an infinite line and a discrete bond. The participants will develop a design perspective on how geometry can be manipulated at the local and global scale to generate growing patterns and structures, creating a constant feedback through an iterative and recursive process. 

 

 

 

 

WS 4: THINKING SUSTAINABILITY

THROUGH DATA VISUALISATION

 

The workshop aims to work collaboratively with participants to explore climatic data and seek new ways of understanding the relationships between human comfort, climate and low-energy design strategies in tropical regions by developing new dynamic visualization tools, accessible to specialist and non-specialist audiences leading to a better understanding of the built environment.
