Following up on the AA/NAi Visiting School São Paulo last July (see results: http://saopaulo.aaschool.ac.uk/?page_id=553), the AA is now going to Rio de Janeiro - April 5-14, 2011!
The 10-day workshop, open to designers worldwide, will explore the parametric mix of new raw materials and the re-use of elements from Carnival floats and costumes, transforming them using generative design processes and new digitally fabricated joint components, to create interventions for micro-venues and urban furniture in the Porto do Rio region.
Taught by AA Staff, recent AA graduates, and computation and fabrication professionals, the studio-based workshop will include extensive instruction in Rhino Grasshopper (including GECO, and Galapagos, to integrate environmental optimization, simulation and parametric control) and digital fabrication processes using laser cutter, CNC-milling and rapid-prototyping machines, sponsored by DS4 and SEACAM, all of which will be used to produce one-to-one design prototypes.
