‘Anything But A Box’ Workshop & Talk on Design Intelligence

September 15 @ 11:00 am - 2:30 pm


11:00-13:00 | Anything but a Box Workshop
11-11:30 – introduce form finding techniques and show examples on how to make them (tensile structures and geodesics)
11:30-12 – students create their own physical prototype from a provided materials list.
12-12:20 – critique the models created and select the best ones.
12:20-13 – walkthrough on grasshopper on how to create tensile structures, and geodesic structures.

In this workshop, we look beyond traditional methods of design and construction, instead, introducing the language of parametric form-finding using physical modelling as our tool of exploration.

We will look at several different methods of form-finding including tensile structures, geodesics and other geometries, before letting you try your own form-finding at home(material list will be emailed to you). Join us to investigate new technology, practice and materials to produce an original concept that’s ‘anything but a box’.

13:30-14:30 | Theodoros Galanos on ‘Design Intelligence’
” Theodore works at the intersection of Design and Intelligence, specializing in the development of computational design technologies for the built environment that seek to generate, extract, collect, and articulate Design Intelligence, bring together disciplines, and enable effective, efficient, and most of all, creative design processes. He is a Senior Researcher in the City Intelligence Lab of the Austrian Institute of Technology where he leads the development of InFraRed, the first AI-Driven, performance-based urban design tool.”
