After the great experience of REaction workshop 2013, we are proud to present REACTION 1401/1402 - workshop series.
Registration is now open, here are all the details.
Design in contemporary architecture focuses on being evolutionary, temporary, changeable, but above all adaptable and customizable to the socio-technological contexts and to people’s needs. By working in tandem with new technologies through potentially endless approximations, designers can more easily and precisely ensure that every morphological decision responds to the multiple requirements of different environments.
GENERAL TOPICS OF REACTION
REACTION aims to investigate the intersection of the physical and the digital world by merging digital fabrication technologies (3D Printing) and Computational Design tools (Grasshopper & add-ons).
That’s why REACTION team proposes for 2014 two workshops - 1401 and 1402 - where these topics will be deeply discussed and explained.
THE REACTION WORKSHOPS SERIES
REACTION 1401 (March 2014) will introduce and focus on optimisation processes while the second workshop, REACTION 1402 (June 2014), will start from digital optimisation logics to generate rapid prototyping for the creation of 3d printed physical models.
The main goal of REACTION 1401 focuses on understanding and controlling the logics of genetics or evolutionary algorithms. Those evolutionary solvers apply the principles of evolution found in nature to find an optimal solution to a problem. We will explore the potentials of those design techniques. Environmental and energetic data will be the main inputs of those processes that will drive our design choices towards flexible, progressive, interactive solutions.
SOFTWARE & SKILLS
Basic modeling skills in Rhino and Grasshopper are required.
No specific environmental modelling design skills are required (although an introductory knowledge of environmental modelling is welcome).
Participants should bring their own laptop with a pre-installed software. The software package needed has no additional cost for the participant (Rhino can be downloaded as evaluation version, Grasshopper and plugins are free). These softwares are subject to frequent updates, so a download link to the version used in the workshop will be sent to the participants a few days before the workshop.
The main plugins for Grasshopper that will be used are:
Heliotrope, Galapagos, Goat, Meshedit, Mesh+, Elk, gHowl.
They are all available here.
