Architecture Challenge 2016

5-10 September 2016
Vienna, Austria

The Angewandte Architecture Challenge (AAC16) is an architecture summer school program collaborating with international experts and institutions. Architecture students interested in exploring integrated digital design and fabrication will simultaneously design a full-scale built project within the teaching environment of the Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna - Die Angewandte.

The AAC16 Program is a week-long, intense event. Software introduction to Rhino / Grasshopper / Karamba / KUKA/prc will be followed by project design development in groups and daily reviews. The KUKA industrial robot at the robot laboratory of the Robotic Woodcraft research project will be used to fabricate selected projects, using a newly developed and innovative plastic forming process entailing a new manufacturing process chain. The workshop will close with a final presentation of the full-scale structure followed by an exhibition. 

Lectures by international experts will accompany the workshop. Ideal participants are architecture students with a bias in digital design and fabrication. Basic use of Rhino and Grasshopper is required. Knowledge of Karamba is a plus, but not required.
