AA Visiting School: Haiti 2016

AA Visiting School: Haiti
July 30-August 11, 2016

This Architectural Associate workshop is pioneering a new method of designing and testing bamboo structures using Rhino, Grasshopper, and various plugins. The workshop explores bamboo as a fast-growing source of low cost, lightweight, and flexible construction material.

The course will include site mapping and community discussion, physical and computer modeling, and a bamboo material and construction workshop. As they refine the structures, the participants will also use climate, structural, and wind testing software.
