Rome – Italy
In an environment where everything is fluid, spaces cannot remain passive. Architects, engineers and designers have to face new and increasingly complex challenges related to new social behaviors, digital landscapes and climate changes. Inspired from biological organisms’ structural alterations in response to environmental stimuli we are keen on introducing similar behaviors in built structures. Advanced computation technologies and physical computing offer a completely new way to think and approach design, architecture and urban planning, a way more coherent with our rapidly evolving habitat. We aim to investigate the human-space interaction as a new design paradigm for physical spaces.
Using Rhino, Grasshopper and some other plug-ins, this workshop will focus on generative design to explore structural behaviors. Introducing physical computing and internet of things’ logic, it experiments with user-structure interaction.
