The 4th Design Modelling Symposium Berlin “Rethinking Prototyping” will take place at the University of the Arts in Berlin, Germany, from Saturday September 28 until Wednesday October 2, 2013.
As in previous years, the Symposium consists of two parts, two days of Workshops and Master Classes (including Rhino, Grasshopper, Sofistik, Firefly, Arduino, RhinoScript, RhinoPython, RhinoCommon SDK and KUKA|prc) followed by a three-day Conference with Keynote Lectures, Case Studies and Poster Sessions.
Design modelling has benefited from computation but in most projects to date there is still a strong division between computational design and simulation leading up to construction and the completed building that is cut off from the computational design modelling.
The Design Modelling Symposium Berlin 2013 would like to challenge the participants to reflect on the possibility of computational systems that bridge design phase and occupancy of buildings. This rethinking of the designed artifact beyond its physical has had profound effects on other industries already. How does it affect architecture and engineering?
