Generative Design and Robotic Rod Bending Workshop
March 16-19, 2017
from 9 am till 6 pm
96 rue de Clery
Maria Smigielska, Mateusz Zwierzycki, and AAn+1 invite you to the Generative Design and Robotic Rod Bending Workshop, an event dedicated to young architecture and design professionals, as well as students interested in the exploration of digital design techniques and robotic fabrication.
“The aim of this workshop is to materialize a chair designed with help of generative algorithms via robotic fabrication. To design the form of the chair we will go through an intensive course of generative design techniques, k-means clustering, structural analysis and optimization done with the help of Anemone, Galapagos, Millipede and other plug-ins. Finally we will employ a 6-axis robot with custom tooling to fabricate the chair via robotic rod bending. No prior experience with Grasshopper or robotic fabrication is required, although basic knowledge in 3d modelling would be an asset.”
The deadline for application is March 13, 2017. Apply by sending an email with the subject “workshop_chair” to firstname.lastname@example.org and get the ticket through eventbrite. Your participation will be confirmed only after payment.
