IaaC Global Summer School (GSS)
India Node: Robots in Construction
July 1-14, 2019 Pune, India
IaaC GSS2019 India is a full-time, two-week course that provides both practical and theoretical knowledge. Expert tutors lead the course, with lectures by renowned professionals and academics relevant to the course topics. These will be broadcast in the different cities: Barcelona, New York City, Hong Kong, Pune, Moscow, Tehran, Melbourne, Beirut, Budapest, Shanghai, Quito and more, all globally connected.
Introductory sessions are organized in topics ranging from parametric and associative modeling in Rhino/Grasshopper to prototyping and electronics with Arduino. During the workshop participants will have the opportunity to explore form-finding strategies through theoretical and practical scripting sessions with computational design tools, investigating the material and its structural implications through KUKA 6 Axis robotic tools and scale model making. Later on they will be built as a series of digitally fabricated architectural elements in 1:1 scale, embedded with smart sensorial interaction.
The two-week course will be led by tutors from leading design research programs, IAAC/Barcelona, BNCA/Pune and professionals in architecture and engineering.
The host institute for the GSS 2019 India program is Digital Fabrication Lab (DFL) curated by Department of Digital Architecture at Dr. Bhanuben Nanavati College of Architecture for Women (BNCA), Pune, Maharashtra, India.
