Universidad de los Andes, MIT, and McNeel Latinoamérica have organized a 5-day workshop on computational design for architecture professors.
Where: Universidad de los Andes, Bogotá, Colombia
When: January 28 - February 1, 2009
Instructors: Computation Group, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Daniel Cardoso Ll. (Ph.D. II)
Kenfield Griffith (Ph.D. III)
Skylar Tibbits (SMArchS I)
The workshop will offer participants hands-on experience on programming as a tool for formal and spatial exploration. The objective is to provide the students with conceptual and technical tools that will allow them to decide when and how programming could turn into an ally on the design process and fabrication of architectural projects.
The workshop will provide a solid programming knowledge in RhinoScript. The participants will explore the possibilities of this language through a series of guided exercises and through the development of some working group projects. At the end of the workshop, the participants will be able to transmit spatial ideas generated algorithmically, they will also be able to develop computational solutions to their structure and assembling problems.
Space is very limited. Email Jackie Nasser if you are interested in attending.
