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 plug-ins. 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.
