algorithmic modeling for Rhino

AA Jordan is a ten-day computational architecture workshop as part of the Architectural Association' Visiting School Programmes.

Dates: July 23 to August 2, 2015

Location: Dead Sea and Amman, Jordan

AGENDA:

The Dead Sea is a hyper-saline lake which exists at 427 metres below sea level and features a one-of-a-kind extreme ecological condition. It is the lowest point on earth and exhibits a diverse platform for research into the Ecomorphology of crystalline formations.

In 2015, the AA in Jordan continues in its third-cycle to build up on research into naturally occurring phenomena in the region, and how these phenomena can inform design methodologies which re-think existing practices. The programme will focus on crystalline formations and their potential development at a variety of architectural and urban scales through the use of cutting-edge computational design technology.

The programme will bring together a network of distinguished faculty and guests to offer design-research units, specialist tooling seminars and a guest-lecture series; which are based in Amman with exclusive visits to the Jordan Valley and Dead Sea.
