Event Description

Our world is enriched by the numerous interactive means that connect us digitally yet at the same time often estrange us from our surroundings. Our built environment continues to evolve into an interconnected hyperspace where architecture can be fluid, flexible and vivid, yet the aspect of materiality requires more attention.

Action-designed structures begin to move beyond the utopian proposals of the 20th century’s manifestos and hold a place in the world of realized designs. The AA Athens Visiting School aims to bring users closer to the built environment while revisiting habits of designing, building and experiencing space through materiality. Understanding materiality and form as a ‘unified whole’, the programme integrates manufacturing techniques through the experimentation fabrication of prototypes at a 1:1 scale.

Prominent Features of the workshop/ skills developed

  • Participants become part of an active learning environment where the large tutor to student ratio allows for personalized tutorials and debates.
  • The toolset of the Athens VS includes but is not limited to Processing and Grasshopper for Rhinoceros, as well as design analysis software.
  • Participants gain hands-on experience on digital fabrication.
  • Design seminars and a series of lectures support the key objectives of the programme, disseminating fundamental computational techniques, relevant critical thinking, theoretical understanding and professional awareness.
