Workshop in Lithuania - Architecture as an organizational matter

Workshop in Lithuania - Architecture as an organizational matter
Date: 28 February - 4 March 2011

This workshop will take place at the Vilnius Art Academy, architecture department, organized by Daniel Koehler and Rasa Navasaityte (

"The workshop can be understood as an extended computer tooling course. We will introduce computational principles and the today's shift from the computer as an representational tool to an organizational principle for architecture.

We will use the software platform Rhino / Grasshopper for our issues and we will directly transfer our virtual dynamic systems into physical models. Through the act of assembling we will sensitize our notions to the key processes inside a parametric figuration and their architectural potentials as a result of 1:1 perception.

By extracting and cultivating these processes as virtual systems, we learn how to amplify them, till a collective materiality emerges. The goal of the course are spatialized processes with architectural intent."

The workshop is divided into 4 parts:

  1. Introduction to environmental design strategies and organizational principles
  2. The teaching of software knowledge within the modeling platform Rhino / Grasshopper
  3. Physical production of architectural models out of the understanding of architecture as an organizational matter; collective design
  4. Exhibition of the collective designs on Friday, 4 March 2011, 18.00, VDA, Maironio g. 6, Vilnius, Lithuania.
