Francesco Cingolani, director of the program DESIGN by DATA of École des Ponts Paris Tech, is honored to invite you to one of the most prestigious events of the DESIGN by DATA OFF program: The Shadows ROOM / workshop by the androgynous New-Territories.

The workshop is organised by François Roche in partnership with Francesco Cingolani and will be hosted by Frac Orléans.

During the workshop the students will work closely with the avatar and his collaborators (including F.Roche) to create the installation called “The shadows ROOM”, to be exhibited at Frac Orléans by November 9.

“The shadows ROOM” is a structure in which morphology is defined by the process without being previously designed. Working with three tons of polyester fibers, the group will design a morphology process using robots and kinects with complex process of scanning position in order to make the structure emerge from the raw material.The experience will engage both artistic and structural skills and students will be encouraged to acquire an integrated approach of geometry and shapes, blurring the traditional boundary between design and construction.

Students will be fully credited (name and surname) for their work.

The workshop has only six places available (participants will be selected based on their skills and motivation). If you want to apply for the workshop, please send the following material to

  • letter of motivation
  • cv
  • portfolio

Registration deadline: October 10, 2016
Early Birds fees on REGULAR FEE for participants who register before September 20, 2016 (included)
