Sometimes the most effective way to learn something is to try it for yourself. Register for any one of AN’s facades+PERFORMANCE Technology Workshops on July 12th and work one-on-one with renowned leaders in digital fabrication while gaining hands-on experience with cutting edge technologies. Participants will not only walk away having earned 8 LU AIA CE credits but also having created their very own prototypes! Here is a quick overview of this year’s line-up of Technology Workshops.
Jason Kelly Johnson of Future Cities Lab, CCA and his associate, Ripon DeLeon will lead the “Responsive Facades” workshop. Sign up for this workshop and learn how Grasshopper, Firefly, and Arduino can be used as technical tools in the design and prototyping of high-performance facades.
In his “Design Scripting” workshop Gil Akos of Mode Collective well explores the fundamental concepts and strategic approaches to design scripting. Through this workshop students will learn to use Python and Rhino3D through hands-on exercises.
Andrew Kudless of Matsys presents students with his “Intro/Intermediate Grasshopper” workshop. By working with Grashopper for Rhino3D participants will walk away having gained a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of parametric design.
Bill Kreysler of Kreysler & Associates returns to AN’s facades+ Conference with his “Hands-On Composites” workshop. Bill, along with his associate Joshua Zabel will discuss and demonstrate the development of composite components for architectural facades. Participants will walk away have made their very own FRP shapes.
AN’s facades+ PERFORMANCE Conference is just 3 days away, but there’s still time to register! Learn more about our workshops and register for the conference here!
