Design Modelling Symposium Copenhagen: Workshops & Master Class

This fall the Design Modelling Symposium is being hosted by CITA at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture in Copenhagen. The conference dates are 30 September - 2 October 2015. The conference will be attended by leading researchers and practitioners from all over the world, and the presentations and discussions are sure to reflect the most current state of the art.

Prior to the conference from 28 - 29 September, there will be a series of workshops and a master class. The only problem is that they are run in parallel, and so by choosing any one of them, you'll be missing out on the others. The topics and line-up of workshop leaders really is that amazing, including many developers whose contributions to the Grasshopper community are well-known and outsized: Will Pearson, Daniel Piker, Clemens Preisinger, Thibault Schwarz and Robert Vierlinger lead the way here. But they also team up with several more researchers and practitioners whose work represents the cutting edge of computational design modelling for architecture, engineering and planning. Participation in any will be sure to extend your knowledge base, create exciting new design output, and inspire your practice moving forward.

We hope that you can join!

WORKSHOP 1: DESIGNING, SIMULATING AND MAKING LIGHT COMPOSITE FIBRE STRUCTURES
MATHIAS GMACHL Loop.pH, DANIEL PIKER Kangaroo, JOHN HARDING Ramboll, WILL PEARSON Ramboll, KRISTJAN PLAGBORG NIELSEN Rambøll

This workshop examines the concept of molecular connectivity as model for bending active structures. Participants will be working with state of the art modelling (Grasshopper / Kangaroo 2) as well as second-order FE analysis (Plankton / Karamba FE). The workshop will translate small-scale experiments to architectural design and construction of freeform surfaces. Read more.

WORKSHOP 2:  COLLABORATIVE ROBOTIC ASSEMBLY - TOWARDS A KINEMATIC ASSEMBLY DESIGN 
FABIAN SCHEURER designtoproduction, HANNO STEHLING designtoproduction, THIBAULT SCHWARTZ HAL Robotics, TRISTAN GOBIN HAL Robotics

The workshop explores the development of novel design to assembly strategies operating two robots working collaboratively. Participants will develop flexible design models and interface these with the basic control of the robots getting an understanding for the connection between digital design and physical assembly constraints. Read more.

WORKSHOP 3:  MULTI-OBJECTIVE OPTIMIZATION IN PARAMETRIC DESIGN - MODELLING WITH KARAMBA  
OCTOPUS /  CLEMENS PREISINGER Bollinger-Grohmann Ingenieure, ROBERT VIERLINGER Bollinger-Grohmann Ingenieure, MORITZ HEIMRATH Institute of Technology GSO, Nuremberg, ADAM ORLINSKI Vienna

This workshop explores the design driven use of multi‐objective solvers and their integration of Finite Element based evaluation. Participants gain hands-on insights into the multi‐objective genetic optimisation engine Octopus and the Grasshopper FE plug‐in Karamba and how these can be used for assessing a structure's viability and efficiency during the development processes. Read more.

WORKSHOP 4: LARGE-SCALE DATA FLOWS <-> SMALL-SCALE HUMAN BEHAVIOUR - TRACKING AND MODELLING URBAN DATA AND FLOWS
JOY KO Rhode Island School of Design Department of Architecture, KYLE STEINFELD University of California Berkeley College of Environmental Design, LYNETTE WIDDER Columbia University, JESSIE BRADEN Pratt Institute Spatial Analysis and Visualization Initiative

The workshop examines the use of real time behavioural data for urban planning and design.  Technologies of GPS and GIS allow now to map flows of goods and to create maps on the large-scale of countries, regions and cities. Participants will explore inter scalar data mapping combining open data with mobile personal tracking technologies. Read more.

MASTER CLASS: MODELLING FOR TRANS-SCALAR, TRANS-TEMPORAL AND TRANS-DISCIPLINARY DESIGN PRACTICES  

BILLIE FAIRCLOTH, RYAN WELCH /  KieranTimberlake

The Master Class develops a theoretical modelling framework for design practices that are trans-scalar, trans-temporal and trans-disciplinary. Modellers miss the interrelatedness between scales and methods when they operate within the confines of their own profession’s modelling practices, perpetually drawing an artificial boundary around that which may or may not participate in a model. Participants will dissect selected models of the physical world, identify their system boundary and expose their computational framework. Read more

This will be something :)

yes choosing is a bit torturous.

I'm still on the fence here :( But either way it'll be good to get the ol' gang together :)
