Architecture for Society of Knowledge
55 Koszykowa Street
00-659 Warsaw

Warsaw Summer School, organized by Architektura Parametryczna (a digital design educational platform) and Architecture for Society of Knowledge and Architektura Informacyjna (Master's Programs by the Faculty of Architecture at Warsaw University of Technology), will take place on September 12-15 in Warsaw.

This year the Warsaw City Council is running an architectural competition for a new bridge. The primary goal of this workshop is to find the most optimal position for a new bicycle bridge (or bridges) in Warsaw to enhance global accessibility and walkability. During the workshop, the participants will develop an interactive tool to help understand the accessibility changes by connecting Vistula river shores with bicycle bridges.

This four-day event includes coding and learning how to apply digital tools into urban scale problems (32 hours), along with lectures from invited guests.

This workshop is for the intermediate user who understands and uses Grasshopper. It will be conducted in English.
