aac summer Research Lab 2014 - open lectures in Hamburg

aac summer Research Lab 2014
Hamburg, Germany
June 22 - July 4

In the first lab, the aac will investigate how the design process changes through the use of parametric design approaches on its geometric, material and structural level. The exploration is based on a specific design task and the parametric modeling environment of Rhino/Grasshopper. The lab is conducted in cooperation with CITA (Centre for Information Tech­nology and Architecture) at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
  • Tool or new architectural form of expression?
  • A device to optimize or a magic wand for constructions with free form?
  • Design supporting or design generating medium?
  • A new way to the same objective?

There are also some open lectures that are happening within the Lab. They are discussing the relation of parametric design and architecture under three aspects of engineering, architecture, and research:

June 24 –  Sven Plieninger (Schlaich Bergemann Partners / Stuttgart) + Magdalene Weiss (gmp)
June 25 –  Ben van Berkel (UN Studio)
June 30 – Mette Ramsgard Thomsen (CITA)

All lectures start at 19.00h at:

aac Academy for Architectural Culture
Campus Rainvilleterrasse
