INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP + CONFERENCE

PARAMETRIC COMPUTATION AND DIGITAL PROTOTYPING FOR ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIVE ENVELOPES


School of Architecture- Università degli Studi di Firenze
Le Murate Progetti Arte Contemporanea – Comune  Firenze

Florence. September 5th-16th and 19th 


«The workshop is focused on the realization of a robotic scale model prototype giving students the opportunity to learn digital manufacturing process.Students will acquire principles and skills on architectural and energy modeling using a parametric approach  (BIM-BEM); they will discover new applications and materials in architecture, and eventually partecipate in the realization  of an interactive multimedia system.»



Focus & Organization_ This is a Design&Making Workshop, researching responsive envelopes through parametrical computation, digital prototyping and robotics.

Design activities will be delivered using state of the art digital technologies for architectural design, computational modeling and more specifically object – oriented 3D parametric modeling using graphical algorithm editors like Grosshopper for Rynhoceros, Dynamo for Revit and other parametric tools for energy evaluation.

Making activities will be the vibrant and exciting place to try, to test and to make corrections: to play with “physical” experiments using a “files to factory” approach: milling, cutting, molding, casting, assembly & wiring.

Goal_ The workshop is focused on the realization of a robotic scale model prototype giving students the opportunity to learn digital manufacturing process. Students will acquire principles and skills on architectural and energy modeling using a parametric approach  (BIM-BEM); they will discover new applications and materials in architecture, and eventually  participate the prototyping of an interactive multimedia system to communicate the final result.*

Finissage_ Friday 16th:  final critique and exhibition opening
