The deadline for entries for the DigitalMed international workshop is extended to Friday 22 July. The workshop will be held in Vietri sul Mare, from 24 to 31 July 2011.
This gives seven more days to all those who want to learn the most innovative existing design methodologies and to participate in the one planning workshop in Italy based on the processes of digital fabrication and parametric design software.
Encouraged by the success of last year, the architects, Amleto Picerno Ceraso and Vangelis Moschonas, have been chosen to be the scientific officers for the second edition of this Workshop. The evocative theme entitled "Vertical Seaside, Amalfi Coast Workshop", aims to focus attention on the recovery of an area of the Amalfi coast, which currently suffers from degradation.
This is a unique opportunity for participants to participate at Digital Med Workshop: the explorations of the project, guided through logical parametric-generative process, will be placed beside a digital fabricator and through the use of software CAD / CAM interface, participants prototypes will be produced simultaneously.
The best project executed during the workshop will be rewarded with a plaque of merit.
The working groups will be followed during the entire course formation by two exceptional tutors: Andrea Graziano and Alessio Erioli, members of the Co-de-it and the leading exponents of digital fabrication and parametric architecture. They will be accompanied by a team of professionals and digital manufacturing experts from Spain, Greece and Italy.
