algorithmic modeling for Rhino

AA Visiting School, Tel Aviv July-August 2010


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 in an 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
Neri Oxman and Erez Ella) and workshops including a hands-on working session with Objet Geometries
chief software engineer, Yossi Abu.

The final jury will be a day-long presentation/exhibition at the
ZeZeZe Gallery in the Tel Aviv port.


The deadline for applications is 9 July 2010.

Application forms and additional information are available online at:

The AA Visiting School requires a fee of £500 per participant, which includes a £50 Visiting Student Membership fee, made payable to the Architectural Association School of Architecture.
Fees do notinclude flights or accommodation, however accommodation at special rates has beensecured with Atlas Hotels in Tel Aviv.

sounds interesting,I'm a 4th year student from Ariel , Israel. I'm currently working with grasshopper and would like to attend this course or at least be a part in some way..can we work something out?

Thank you very much for the wonderful and fast replay, it was very helpful.

Hi Ran,
We are still working on the schedule. It will probably be one or two hour of computer workshop everyday (Maya/Rhino/Grasshopper) followed by "design studio" activity in which everyone will develop a project within "units". Similarly to the way the AA works. We will have access to different types of 3D printers within the University (including a very large one i heard) which we will use to materialize all the projects. There will also be lunchtime and evening lectures (looking forward to Neri Oxman's).
More specificaly on computational and fabrication technique i think every student will be able to develop their own projects and use the tool they prefer. As an example, for the first workshop last year, one unit used the body as a "site" and developped objects around it.
Hope you are still interrested, please do not hesitate to contact the organizers about it:

I was reading about this workshop, and I was wondering is it possible to see the workshop schedule or maybe a bit more information about the computational processes and fabrication techniques?

Thanks guys! i m looking forward to some sun and naked edges :)
Carlos, we're going to use Rhino+Grasshopper and Maya.
I will post it now, sorry i didn't see at first the events page.

This looks like a nice event! Can you post it also on the Events page?

Which software tools are you going to use at the workshops?

This is the best name for a workshop I've ever heard. Sounds like a very nice course. Thanks for sharing!
