BAD MESH & NAKED EDGES
Sun 25 July – Wed 4 August 2010 David Azrieli School of Architecture Tel Aviv University
AA CSI 2010 is the second of three annual summer workshops focused on developing innovative methods for synthesising drawing and 3D printing. Working with Objet Geometries high resolution, multimaterial liquid 3D printing technology, participants will be involved inan intensive ten-day programme of making and testing 2D, ‘thick 2D’ and 3D digital printing techniques to invent architectural surfaces.
The workshop programme is inspired by British pioneers of art and architectural representation –Joseph Gandy, Robert Adam, James Stirling, David Hockney and John Outram – and informed by Israel’s unique cultural heritage
of textiles and ceramics. The workshop is the testing ground for AA Intermediate Unit 9’s ongoing experiments to blur the boundary between drawing and 3D printing. The objet trouvé, exquisite corpse and other Surrealist and Dadaist techniques form the basis for these investigations.
The workshop’s objective is to deliver an atlas of prints (working with measured drawings from non-architectural disciplines) from each participant (a ‘3D takeaway’) that they will incorporate into future projects and
publications, giving the workshop a wide-ranging material and intellectual influence.
Participants will work in at least two of four different AA-led design units over the ten days. The teaching staff also includes
Eran Neuman and Aaron Sprecher of Open Source Architecture, as well as Marco Ginex and Adam Nathaniel Furman of Madam Studio, and Arthur Mamou-Mani from the AA
In addition to advanced software tuition, there will be regular evening lectures (invited speakers include Benjamin Samuel Koren and Erez Ella) and workshops including a hands-on working session with Objet Geometries.
