Interactive Architectural Prototypes Frankfurt, Germany 21 July - 01 August 2014
“Interactive Architectural Prototypes” is a 2 weeks summer lab based on the principles of experimentation and interactivity through emerging technologies in architectural production.
The lab engages students, architects, designers and game developers with four techniques of prototyping: designer-informed, analytics-driven, crowd-operated and sensor-actuated. Participants learn to use digital and parametric design tools and engage with feedback collected from simulation algorithms, online users and real-world sensors.
The acquired knowledge will be applied to designing interactive prototypes ultimately exhibited at an open public exhibition at the Städelschule.
Tools: Rhino, Grasshopper, Arduino, Unity3D…
