AA Visiting School at Rome


Rome - IM/Material
Rome, Italy
Thursday 16 – Saturday 25 January 2014

IM/Material, a workshop organized by the AA Rome Visiting School


This AA Rome Visiting School 10-day workshop encourages the observation of material elements and their use in architectural design featuring subconscious experiences, spatial voids and virtual communities. Students will investigate modern materials and their digital fabrication by direct experience. They will work with algorithms and sensors that are able to recognize and respond to human feelings and attitudes. Students will feed novel expressions of void spaces into the Roman tradition featuring examples like the ancient catacombs and the Nolli map. Through augmented reality design the projects will open a window into a digital virtual world. By the end of the workshop students will unveil their interpretation of the material/immaterial form hidden in the real matter.
The workshop is open to architecture, engineering and design students and professionals worldwide.
