Event Description

Parametrica [Digi Fab School] from Bucharest, Romania, invites you to DYNAMIC FIELDS Workshop and Conference (16-29 July 2013) to participate in the digital design build project, seeking to create an inventive collaborative environment.

The workshop is part of a series of PARAMETRICA events, promoting computational design thinking and exploring the new possibilities of parametric design.


The workshop is aimed at: students, postgraduates, architects, interior, product and urban designers, engineers, anybody interested.


> Workshop CONCEPT (16th – 28th July 2013):

The advancement of digital technology is helping architects to understand and respond to the complexity of the environment surrounding us.


In this 14 day workshop the various energies which exist in a given environment will be identified, analysed and then digital simulated.


Experimental structures capable of reconfiguring themselves in response to the mapped forces will be generated and fabricated.


> Conference CONCEPT (29th July 2013):

During this day we will present the final workshop projects and our special guest, Patrik Schumacher will exploit the subject of computational design thinking and parametric architecture, by putting the accent on the subject  “Parametric Semiology – Architecture as the interface of communication”



The workshop objectives are two-fold, in the first phase the workshop focuses on the identification and analysis of resources inherent to the environmental context, thus developing a better understanding of their nature as well as optimized methods of use or response.

In the next phase, the objective is to generate structures which through either means of fabrication or material properties can respond to, or utilize the environmental energy sources.
