Event Description

Live Parameters: Real World Data Collection for Associative Design


Luis E. Fraguada BAD.Research / Live Architecture Network / Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia
Felipe Pecegueiro
Type of participants
Students, graduate students, researchers, professionals
2 days, Sat – Sun
Prerequisites 1 / participants skills
Experience in Rhino and Grasshopper; programming experience with Processing or Arduino IDE is recommended but not necessary
Prerequisites 2 / hardware
Participants should bring their own computer with Windows XP or 7 64 bit OS
Prerequisites 3 / software
Rhinoceros Version 4 sr9, Grasshopper 0.8.0050, Arduino IDE, Processing, Google Earth*

*Software versions should be the most updated versions at the time of the workshop. Rhino 5 is also acceptable.

An associative model is only as relevant as the information it seeks to manage. This workshop will engage the associative model by feeding it with real time and real world data captured through prefabricated sensor nodes known as the Ambient Sensor Kit (ASKit). The ASKit is an Open Hardware platform for personal data collection and sharing. The ASKit project is based on the premise that a personal understanding of the information around us is key to a sustainable and informed habitation of our environment.

Workshop participants will be working with Grasshopper, a generative,logic based design environment where participants will be able associate real world data to their models. Several other tools will be employed including Processing, Pachube, Google Earth, and gHowl (a set of custom components which extend the functionality of Grasshopper).

This two day workshop will focus on a specific area in Berlin to understand, through data, the differences between the physical barriers and invisible forces which define certain urban functions. The participants will engage in:

- environmental data collection
- site surveying with open hardware/DIY electronics
- data visualization and analysis
- associative modeling with collected data

Day 1:
Demonstration of ASKit hardware platform for data collection and associative modeling.
Data capture session in specific zones in Berlin.
Data visualization and associative modeling in Grasshopper.

Day 2:
Focused Data Capture Session
Directed projects applying associative modeling with collected data.
