Event Description

Parametric Modelling and Digital Fabrication Workshop for Architects and Designers


INTEGRATE Academy is pleased to offer two bursaries to students interested in enrolling in the Fabricating Luminance workshop. The INTEGRATE Bursary is sponsored by Studio Integrate and gives students the opportunity to receive a 50% bursary on workshop fees. The bursary is both based on need and merit; if you are interested in attending a workshop but are unable to afford the fees, contact us via our website. Upon receipt of your query, we will ask for a digital portfolio submission (5MB or less) on which we will award the INTEGRATE Bursary.

Fabricating Luminance is an intense 2-day workshop focused on the design and fabrication of a luminous artefact through surface manipulation in Grasshopper, Rhino’s parametric modelling plug-in. The workshop will introduce participants to the concepts of algorithmic design and associative modelling through focused design exercises, investigating possibilities for heterogeneous lighting conditions through the differentiation of component-based systems. Each student will have the opportunity to fabricate and construct their own design with the use of our CNC laser cutter. Objects produced will have the opportunity to be developed further and showcased on the online jewellery and product design shop The design-based workshop will be supported by a series of presentations related to the workshop content.

The workshop is open to both students and professionals in architecture, product design, industrial design, and any other related fields. To ensure maximum time with tutors, the workshop is limited to 8 students.
