The “Angewandte Architecture Challenge” is an architecture summer school program in collaboration with international experts and institutions. It is intended for architecture students interested in exploring integrated digital design and fabrication while simultaneously designing a full-scale built project within the teaching environment of the Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna - “Die Angewandte”.
Angewandte Architecture Challenge 2014 - AAC14
Architectural Design at the “Angewandte” is taught as an integrated, multidisciplinary process. Following this tradition, the design process will be enriched with parametric design strategies combining Grasshopper plugins such as the KARAMBA and OCTOPUS platforms. AAC14 is organized in collaboration with Hochschule Trier and Bollinger + Grohmann Engineers. Specialists from the Institute of Architecture and invited guest experts Robert Vierlinger, Robert Thum and Peter Ortner will co-tutor the workshop. The handling of virtual simulation methods and the engineering of full-scale structures using digital manufacturing using polymer concrete will be a primary focus of the workshop. This workshop will result not only in built structures and environments, but will also inform and prepare interested students for the Master of Architecture study program at the Institute of Architecture. The entrance interviews for the MArch program, Architecture Studios Greg Lynn, Zaha Hadid and Hani Rashid are scheduled for the same week at the Angewandte.
Format & Ambitions
The Architecture Challenge Program is organized as a 7-day, intense event. Software introduction to Rhino / Grasshopper / Karamba / Octopus will be followed by a project design development in groups and daily reviews of the group projects.
Selected projects will be fabricated using the latest research findings in polymer concrete. The workshop will close with a final presentation with guests followed by an exhibition. Lectures by international experts will accompany the workshop.
Ideal participants are architecture students with a bias in Digital Design & Fabrication. Materials, working space and necessary fabrication equipment will be made available. You will need to bring your own laptop with Rhino and Grasshopper installed. Basic use of Rhino and Grasshopper is required, knowledge of Karamba / Octopus is a plus, but not required.
