Workshop 1: 29 November – 2 December 2011
São Paulo Architecture Bienale in the OCA Building
Extending the Architectural Association São Paulo High-Low Visiting School, this four-workshop programme will focus on the design and 1:1 fabrication of an interactive pavilion for the 2012 International Festival of Electronic Language (FILE). Located on Avenida Paulista, the pavilion will react to light sensors and human activity, so as to transform and create a range of different lighting and spatial effects, triggering further movement and producing an interactive feedback loop of behaviour and response. To accommodate this responsiveness, the design should be developed using recursive scripting, associative modelling and digital fabrication.
Each workshop will focus on a different phase of the pavilion’s design and construction. Instruction will be led by Rob Stuart-Smith of Kokuggia and Tristan Simmonds of Simmonds Studio, with Lawrence Friesen of Generative Geometry, Anne Save de Beaurecueil and Franklin Lee of SUBdV, together withand other AA tutors, as well as local structural engineers and set-designers. Each workshop will offer introductory instruction in computational design - Grasshopper, (GECO, Firefly) and Arduino, and digital fabrication, while advanced instruction will be offered to participants undertaking multiple workshops.
Workshop 1 will develop design variations in small models, as well as material and structural scale modeling, testing and initial 1:1 prototyping, following computational and digital fabrication instruction. Workshop 2 will produce 1:1 prototyping. Following computational and digital fabrication instruction, it will explore the mechanics and electronics of the light-sensors and motors that generate the transformations of the pavilion. Workshop 3 will fabricate the final elements, working directly with manufacturers, testing partial assemblies. Advanced development of all circuits and Arduino scripts will take place following computational and digital fabrication instruction. Workshop 4 will focus on the final assemblage of the pavilion on site.
Workshop 2: 4–13 January 2012
Workshop 3: 3–12 April 2012
Workshop 4: 3–12 July 2012
