Advanced Architectural Design workshop in Barcelona

Fri, 2014-06-13 13:55

Advanced Architectural Design with Rhinoceros and Grasshopper
Barcelona, Spain
July 28-30, 2014 

This course is geared towards architects and spatial designers who wish to enhance their workflow with parametric and data rich modeling capabilities.

From concept design to documentation, every stage of the design process is an opportunity to increase efficiency and creativity. This course has been designed to give architects access to simulation, analysis, and advanced modeling capabilities in order to better inform and execute design decisions throughout the design process. During the 24h course, we will look at the relationship between Rhinoceros 5, Grasshopper, and associated plug-ins to create workflow tools that can be tailored to each project.

This three-day seminar / workshop will explore strategies for applying parametric design for the purpose of generating informed architectural models. During the course, participants will learn how to connect a digital model to external data sources such as environmental data and GIS databases. The participants will also learn how to evolve designs to reach multiple objective optimizations. This combination of tools and strategies will allow the participant to further their projects with informed design decisions.

Instructor: Luis E. Fraguada - Director of Research - Built By Associative Data // Faculty at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalunya. *Authorized Rhinoceros Trainer.

Cost: Early Bird Academic: 295€ - Early Bird Professional: 395€

AA Visiting School Madrid
Trans-Computational Membranes 2.0
Madrid, Spain
Sep 2-12, 2014

Trans-computational membranes will explore computational design methods through the use of digital-analogue experimentation. It will challenge the way we conceive flexibility within the context of spatial re-adaptation as a driver for social change. Time-based dynamic systems will transform the digital–analogue divide through networks of instantaneous spatial deployment creating a symbiotic spatial context that examines new-era demands.
