The AAG 2018 committee has great pleasure in announcing the following workshops at the Advances in Architectural Geometry 2018 conference. Additional workshops will be announced soon. In addition, the AAG 2018 committee still welcomes proposals for workshops. Information on how to submit proposals will be given soon.
Daniel Piker, Emil Poulsen, Cecilie Brandt-Olsen
This workshop will explore the different aspects related to the design of a bending-active gridshell with an emphasis on using Kangaroo2 and K2Engineering as interactive form-finding and analysis software. The design process includes the development of an architectural concept, creating small scale models, form-finding, loading analysis, structural design verification, fabrication strategy and eventually assembly of a full-scale prototype…
Jens Pedersen and Jeg Dudley
This workshop will playfully explore the simulation and construction of flexible forms (developable, tensile and inflated), and the heterogenous spatial effects achievable through mixed-material construction. We recognise that these hybrid forms are by their nature less precise than other construction techniques, and have chosen to embrace this characteristic. They will be employed as a prototypical construction system that allows us to explore…
Tom Van Mele and Matthias Rippmann
During this workshop participants learn how to address advanced research questions in architectural geometry and structural design through computation. On the first day, we will set up a development environment for scientific programming that will be used throughout the workshop, followed by a “scientific Python 101” and an introduction to COMPAS, an open source, Python-based framework for “computational research and…
