Sens[e-Res]ponsive Architecture Workshop

Friday, May 27, 2011 § 0

This August I will be part of the Sens[e-Res]ponsive Architecture Workshop. The workshop will take place during 22-29.08.2011 at the Department of Architecture at the Technical University of Crete in Chania, Greece.

The overall discourse of the workshop revolves around the contextual and material frameworks of mediums, tools and techniques to create sensponsive environments that extend from useful to collaborative, developing a "sense" of their own. This year’s theme involves the design of an intriguing space for children with responsive partitions, utilizing rhino3D grasshopper with firefly and arduino. A detailed description of the theme can be found here.

The workshop will be taught by an interdisciplinary team of designers and theorists from Harvard, MIT, TU Delft, University of East London (UEL), Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) and the Technical University of Crete (TUC). More information can be found here.

The Sens[e-Res]ponsive Architecture Workshop is now open to applications. Anyone interested in participating can fill-in an application form and submit the necessary material here.

Protocol Architecture / Beyond Representation @ UPatras

Tuesday, May 24, 2011 § 0

On Wednesday (14:00) I will be at the School of Architecture of the University of Patras, where I will be giving a lecture under the title "Protocol Architecture / Beyond Representation". The subject is somewhere between encoded architectural protocols and the architectural drawing as a generative tool. The lecture will be part of the course 'Architectural Design and Digital Media'. Many thanks to Yannis Zavoleas for the invitation.
