algorithmic modeling for Rhino
The Architecture of the Human Body and its evolving symbiosis with Technology; Envisioning body extensions, as physical integration elements that combine aesthetics and functionality. Aiming to provide a critical environment for speculation on the possible transformations of the contemporary human body.
The workshop focuses on the research of geometrical explorations, aesthetic behavior of generative patterns and material performance through medium between computational design, digital fabrication and traditional sartorial techniques in haute couture fashion.
By integrating Design, Fashion and Architecture, the relationship between digital patterns and the human body will be crucial in order to adopt a contemporary language and translate it to a design that is both functional and physically appealing.
In Biology, tissues are organizations of similar cells that are composed of organs and living organisms. Due to the specific qualities of singles cells, some peculiar functions of the tissue emerge; conditioning its effectiveness and determining its’ contribution to the life of the organism. The same biological principles can be applied to any design: when the designer explores these particular parametric strategies, it is important to work with a tool that provides efficient feedback and allows one to easily introduce a wide range of variations leading to significant qualities for a design evolutionary process.
The workshop aims to produce full human scale 1:1 prototype wearable garments, in which will be exhibited during Milan Design Week in April 2017 at SBODIO32 Exhibition.
Dates: 18th April - 23rd March 2017
