Workshops Open Call

deadline: February 12, 2018

The AAG workshops creates a creative arena and meeting point attracting attendees from across the world of academia, professional practice and industry. The workshops are open to 150 applicants who come together for two intensive days of design and collaboration, leading up to the symposium. There will be 12 – 15 parallel workshops, where half will be led by invitation, while the remaining will be chosen in competition through this open call. We are now looking for proposals to complete the set of workshops.

The two-day workshop format is particularly suited for well formatted and highly curated workshops, where alternate design principles, new technologies and/or workflows can be intensely tested with an outcome that can be presented in the exhibition that will initiate the conference. Participation will give the opportunity to showcase work in a unique context that gather international practitioners and researchers at the forefront of architectural geometry and computational design. Physical prototyping is encouraged to complement digital work. A public exhibition party will be held on the last day showcasing the outcome of the workshops.

Workshop resources

  • Travel and accommodation for two workshop leaders, as well as free entrance to symposium
  • Dedicated host from Chalmers prior to and during the workshop (will be available for practical issues of planning and facilitation)
  • Access to model workshop, digital fabrication lab (3d-printers, laser cutters, 3-axis CNC router and CNC cutter) and robotic lab
  • A 500 euro budget for workshop costs
  • Additional cost for materials and other sources are open to sponsorship, which will be supported by the symposium committee.

Examples of expected workshop outcome for the public exhibition

  • 1 poster (mandatory, format will be specified)
  • 1 film – 5 minutes
  • Physical models
  • Full scale prototypes
  • Material samples

Workshop application details – for potential workshop leaders – combine into one pdf document.

  • A workshop team title
  • 500 – 1000 word workshop description, including subject matter, applied technologies, relation to symposium theme of Advancing Architectural Geometry and expected outcome. It can also include references to previous work or publications.
  • 2 – 3 images in format suitable for publication on the web
  • 200 word bios for proposed workshop leaders
  • Expected knowledge and skill level of participants
  • Expected needs in terms of resources (such as software, hardware and materials)
  • Potential workshop sponsors (initial contact with sponsors should be made by symposium organizing committee

Application via email to aag2018@architecturalgeometry.org no later than February 12th 2018.
