In summer 2011 (11th-22nd July), the AA will hold its second Biodynamic Structures workshop in San Francisco.
This two-week design workshop co-taught by the Emtech faculty at the AA and the faculty of Architecture and MEDIAlab at California College of the Arts, will explore integral active and passive architectural systems that respond to changing environmental, spatial and social needs.
Associative modelling, simulation techniques, material experiments and digital fabrication tools will be integral to the design process and making of prototypes. The work generated throughout the workshop, as well as the final prototypes constructed will contribute to a publication and travelling exhibition at the culmination of the three-year programme.
The deadline for applications is 20 June 2011.
Application forms and additional information are available online at http://www.aaschool.ac.uk/sanfrancisco and http://sanfrancisco.aaschool.ac.uk/.
Applications can be submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
