Make an Exhibit:
More than 200 objects (models or micro-installations) are under request in order to fill the Incubator Installation during the exhibition ‘Architecture and the City in South-East Europe’.
The objects will interpret the function of the Incubator.
Their size must not exceed a 30x30x30cm volume and 500kg weight.
All the members of the school, students, tutors, laboratory and administrative staff are invited to contribute with their work/interpretation of the incubator they live and work in.
Meetings will be announced on the website of the Department of Architecture of the University of Thessaly [www.arch.uth.gr].
Participation Deadline: 24 December 2011
The Objects will be completed and collected between 9-13 January 2012.
Participants, interested in making and exhibiting an object are requested to send an e-mail under the title ‘object’, noting their name and position in the Department.
Participation in the Organizing Team:
Students interested in contributing to the organization of the exhibition, for collecting the material, designing the blog and the printed leaflet of the Incubator, are requested to send an e-mail under the title ‘organizing team’, noting their name, semester of studies and attaching an identity photo (300K).
The processes of digital fabrication and software of parametric design have been influencing the methods, theories and architectural design thinking. The systems of cad/cam have been through such an evolution that they can be considered an instrument of mass production for the designer.
The participants to the workshop will have the opportunity to approach the new dynamic design investigations their possibilities, their limitation and their prospects.
The objective arisen from the workshop provides the participants with the techniques, theories and methods for the utilisation of the software of parametric design and the machines of digital fabrication.
This second workshop will take place in Italy, at Amalfi Cost, in the city Vietri sul Mare, declared as as world heritage site since 1997 (including other villages of Amalfi Cost). The zone of the cost has been the object of interventions due to its environmental restoration and urban approach in order not to alter the conditions of equilibrium between earth and water. In fact these last two conditions, cover/generate all (the arc of) the possibilities related to the morphology present in all the Amalfi Cost between the sea and the ground. From the beach to the cliff and from the gorge to the rocks, to the smallest grain of sand, the stretch of the cost of Vietri sul Mare offers a variety of relationships between diverse natural elements and ecosystems and a high degree of biodiversity. Therefore, the topic of the second Digital Workshop is focused on the ecotone, as mediation area and transition between different ecosystems. The part of the cost chosen as object for the workshop is surrounded by two crags of rocks offering extraordinary opportunities for design.
The opportunity for the participants will be extraordinary as the design explorations will be guided by parametric-generative logics, introducing digital production. The workshop will produce projects for elements of environmental restoration and will assume new approaches for the recuperation of those zones.
