Event Description

Unveiled the first event of Noumena Architecture and Algoritm! The event will focus on the design and realization of a 1:1 structure, generated according to computational design criterias. It will be divided into two stages: the first one focused on design strategies in Cairo and the second one about prototyping and realization of a 1:1 model in Barcelona atIaaC<Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia

NOUMENA & ALGORITM organize an international competitive workshop that will take place in both Cairo- Egypt and Barcelona – Spain where you’ll explore innovative design and fabrication strategies (Advanced Architecture, Parametric Design, NURBS Modeling , Optimization, and Fabrication).

THE COMPETITION will run between the workshop participants. it is divided  into 2 main phases.

Travelling to Cairo

  Phase 1: starts the 1st of September in Cairo (think, design, compete, and prototype)

                -  participants will get lectures and tutorial on parametric design, modeling

                -   participants will be divided into groups and start an internal competition. 

                -  each group will propose their optimized parametric pavilions fabricated in small scale 

                -  a selected jury will choose the best two pavilions  as primary winners 

Travelling to Barcelona 

  Phase 2:  starts the 14th of September in Barcelona (Adv. optimize, finalize, fabricate, and win)

                -  all participants will get advanced lectures and tutorial on algorithms and optimizations 

                -  participants will get experiences on big scale fabrication

                -  the 2 pavilions will be fabricated in big scale by all participants  

                -  final Jury will choose only one pavilion to win the competition.


LIMITED SEATS (only 25 SEAT). every participant must submit his CV, portfolio, and statement of interest to the organizers by email:   and   In case of acceptance we will contact the participant to continue registration.

 Submission deadline is 15/8/2014.     Participants’ selections : 18/8/2014

Workshop and competition  fees :   600 Euro
