Elegant Ecotones: Grasshopper workshop in Bologna

Co-de-iT - Elegant Ecotones - a Grasshopper workshop in Bologna

5-19 Marzo 2010
Luogo : Pentacom - Via Petroni 18/4, Bologna

Info e

L'ecotono è la zona di transizione tra due o più ecosistemi, ed è la zona in cui si manifestano in modo più evidente i temi di soglia, gradiente, variazione, catastrofe, dove le condizioni di limite e transizione possono essere esplorate trasformandole in configurazioni formali e architettoniche interessanti. Il workshop mira ad indagare strategie attraverso cui si manifestano le condizioni di transizione tra ecosistemi, sia in termini spaziali (dalla scala territoriale alla scala dei componenti) che in termini di evoluzione o ciclicità temporale (condizioni critiche come i cicli notte/giorno nelle zone desertiche). Il tema dell'eleganza riguarda il modo in cui il sistema produce un campo armonicamente articolato e differenziato di fenotipi a partire dal genotipo attraverso un processo di "estetica delle forze" guidata attraverso lo strumento digitale.
