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.

FORMAT:

What a cool workshop, for enthusiasts or students of the design faculty - this is a dream, not a course. How much can be learned. I study architecture, but the 3D design is also very interesting to me. I used to buy a research paper navigate here because I was doing one project for the university, and the professionals helped me finish it. My project was dedicated to ancient architecture, and it would be cool to add architecture renderings of those times to it.
