algorithmic modeling for Rhino
AA DLab experiments thoroughly on the possibilities of digital design tools and rapid prototyping techniques as highly integrated systems of design development. It is an intensive computation and fabrication oriented workshop that is structured around a general theme in each consecutive edition.
In 2012, DLab takes on the color of Green as the shade of meaning and the design vessel for a number of rigorous experiments carried out using algorithmic design methodologies and digital fabrication techniques. Associated with the concepts of regeneration, emergence and growth in nature, the colour green will serve as our inspiration for observing natural and biological structures, which we will then abstract into elaborated design proposals
The workshop will be formulated as a two-phase process. The initial phase will be highlighted with the conceptualization and production of design proposals by the participants as well as the elaboration of a working one-to-one scale prototype. During the second phase, participants and tutors will be located at the AA Hooke Park facilities, working on the fabrication and assembly strategies of the prototype, followed by the fabrication of the outcome.
The deadline for applications is 9 July 2012. Application forms and additional information are available online at: www.aaschool.ac.uk/dlab2. Applications can be submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org
