School Program

The program is based on advanced computational approach that enables designers and architects to overcome the imposition of prefixed architectural forms in order to enhance performance-driven design and responsive kinetic solutions that interact with humans and environment. Lectures on parametric design simulation, generative and form finding as well as environmental optimization, analyzing and digital fabrication prototyping, are integrated together in 2 main modules. Students from the beginning of the school will be divided into groups to compete on a case project increasing their ability to define project parameters, design factors, solving problems, understanding factors relationships, involving environmental and human sensors, and optimizing their projects solutions in smart and inelegance way. In the beginning of the school, parametric modelling will be introduced (Rhino3d and Grasshopper) to build the necessary skills of parametric generative form methods to students. In this module will be dedicated to digital design methods and physical model making by various fabrication techniques, including laser cutting and 3D printing. Students will focus on the idea of creating algorithmic architectural form inspired by nature and their research will be supported by a series of lectures. Also they will be split into groups in order to develop projects assigned by the professors. This Module also adds Form Finding techniques to the parametric design strategies. Students will learn how material system behaviors, physical forces and responsive structure system can be digitally simulated into parametric models in order to explore complex forms that optimized and adapted to its natural behaviors, initial forces, material, particles, and structure systems. Series of lectures on form finding, natural structural algorithms, material behaviors, and physical forces will lead student to optimize their project forms. It is experimental laboratory in which kinetic interactive Architectural models are tested and designed. Students will develop novel solutions, building upon learning responsive kinetic systems. They will design Architectural responsive robotic systems inspired by nature. Projects will transform by adapting to environmental conditions and human behaviors happening at real and virtual levels.

The efforts being made to improve the effectiveness and comfort of schooling for all pupils are commendable. This is essential since, in the absence of it, the educational process may present several difficulties. I believe that the abundance of work is the main cause of this. And in this sense, I make use of research proposal writing help. This is only required in order to carry out such respectable task.

Hi and thanks for a nice description of this event. I am pleased to attend such events even when I work as a teacher. All this can improve my classification and help transfer new methods and knowledge to my students. But I'm here more as a reader now than as a teacher. I got nostalgia and remembered how during my teenage years I went to different summer educational platforms. My parents thought it would make me a real Einstein. So I met my future wife there, it was the true love of teenagers that grew into a real family. I would like to share material where you can get advice for yourself as a parent. It would be much better for me and my future wife if my parents were able to realize in time what was happening to us at that moment. But we can say education gave us a family
