Parametric Design & Form Finding Workshop in Argentina


(Bob McNeel) #1

Join Arq. Arturo De La Fuente in Parametric Design & Form Finding Workshop in FADU UBA - Buenos Aires, Argentina. The workshop will focus on the creation of algorithms as a form finding method of complex geometry and their parametric optimization for future fabrication.

Participants will be able to generate a complex system that determines the relationship between elements, visualize the emergent information in real time and study how the complexity of the system allows the analysis of data, to achieve more efficient results.

Objectives:

  1. Introduction to the work of Frei Otto, Gaudí, Heinz Isler, among others.
  2. Introduction to computational design, parametric design based on visual programming.
  3. Understand how Kangaroo (“Live physics simulation” plug-in) functions to develop real time physical simulations.
  4. Develop different digital form finding techniques.
  5. Establish optimization strategies for construction.
  6. Understand different digital fabrication methods available for existing models.
