AA Summer DLAB
25 July - 12 August 2016
London and Hooke Park (UK)
Summer DLAB experiments with the integration of algorithmic and generative design methods and large scale digital fabrication tools. Continuing its color based agenda, Summer DLAB immerses in ‘orange’ for its 2016 cycle, as a starting point to investigate principles of natural formation processes and interpret them as innovative architectonic spaces. These concepts are carefully interwoven with spatial, performance-based, and structural criteria to create full-scale working prototypes.
The three-week long program is in two phases. During the two-week initial phase, participants enjoy the unique atmosphere and facilities of AA’s London home. The second phase, lasting for a week, shifts to AA Hooke Park and revolves around the fabrication and assembly of a full-scale architectural intervention realized by using robotic fabrication techniques in AA’s Hooke Park premises.
