Announcing the AA Visiting School New York 2024!

AA Visiting School New York 2024
July 26-August 4, 2024

This intensive nine-day program, in partnership with Pratt Institute, will cover some of the most relevant and advanced approaches to computation and urban design in practice today.

The program will focus on digital and scripted design methodologies as well as cutting-edge AI platforms realized through digital representation techniques. Using Rhinoceros and Grasshopper, each instructor will introduce their advanced methods of working within these platforms for diverse design outcomes and exposure to differentiated design methodologies.

This innovative program features designers and academics from some of the leading offices and advanced institutions from around the globe. Featured academic staff and lecturers include the Architectural Association, Pratt Institute, UPenn, MIT, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Hong Kong University, Technical University Munich, Technical University Prague, UCL the Bartlett, TU Graz, ETH Zurich, and Tsinghua University. Professional experience is provided by Zaha Hadid Architects (ZHA), Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM), Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF), Grimshaw Architects, Bart//Bratke, Beta Realities.

AAVS New York is in person. All workshops, lectures, crits, and collaborations will take place both on Governors Island and at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.

A remote program audit is also available, with virtual access to the Symposium, Instruction Sessions, Master Class Presentations, and Lecture Series. This option does not include direct instruction, participation in the development of a group project, or receipt of certificate course completion.

Registration ends July 25, 2024.

Free Workshop: Bridging Nature and Technology by Bio-Inspired Design

Workshop by Sabit

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to delve into the synergy between nature and technology. Sabit's workshop will provide you with hands-on experience and valuable insights into bio-inspired design using Rhino and Grasshopper.

Nature is a constant source of inspiration, adapting to new conditions and providing the tools to maintain the delicate balance between urbanisation and living systems. 
As creatives, there is a unique opportunity to learn from these natural processes and apply them to design methods. 
In this workshop, the link between nature and technology will be explored, discovering new ways to enhance the profession.

What is Bio-Inspired Design?

Bio-inspired design is an innovative approach that seeks to integrate natural elements into modern architecture and design. This method not only enhances aesthetic appeal but also promotes well-being and sustainability. By mimicking the patterns, forms, and processes found in nature, bio-inspired design helps create environments that are both functional and harmonious with the natural world.

Date: June 20 2024, 19:30 (GMT +1)
Location: Online via Zoom. Access to the event will be granted to all registered participants
Language: English

Participation is free.
