Architecture for Society of Knowledge
55 Koszykowa Street
Warsaw Summer School, organised by Architektura Parametryczna (a digital design educational platform) and Architecture for Society of Knowledge and Architektura Informacyjna (Master's Programs by the Faculty of Architecture at Warsaw University of Technology), will take place on September 12-15 in Warsaw.
This year Warsaw City Council decided to run an architectural competition for a new bridge. The primary goal of this workshop is to find the most optimal position for a new bicycle bridge (or bridges) in Warsaw to enhance global accessibility and walk ability. During the workshop the participants will develop an interactive tool to help understand the accessibility changes by connecting Vistula river shores with bicycle bridges.
This four-day event will includes coding and learning how to apply digital tools into urban-scale problems (32 hours), along with lectures from invited guests.
This workshop is for the intermediate user that understands and uses Grasshopper. It will be conducted in English.
Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, Silverye, Elk, Shortest Walk, Human, gHowl, Unity.
