The workshop Digital Design and Production in Architecture, organized by INDEXLAB – Politecnico di Milano, has the objective to offer a new vision on architecture and its manufacturing methodologies.
Algorithmic Design for Architecture
Monday July 3, 2017
Participants will be introduced to the tools and methods of computational design through the Grasshopper software platform. The aim is to allow the exploration of algorithmic modeling of non- standard forms, as well as to understand the implications of fabrication methodologies in the realization of such geometries.
Digital Construction Design and Robotic Fabrication
From Monday July 10 to Saturday July 15, 2017
The course will focus on digital and robotic fabrication methodologies, with the final aim of designing and fabricating full-scale mock-ups and installations, integrating innovative materials and efficient “design to production” parametric routines. The course aims to provide the participants with relevant skills to design complex geometries – through algorithmic modeling – and define innovative digital production methods for architecture and the construction industry.
INDEXLAB workshop tutors are world-renowned leading experts in the field of digital construction, computational design and robotic fabrication.
