Transformation of Architectural Heritage in collaboration with Digital Experimentation.
Cultural Technologies is the result of a 5 day workshop with Digital Experimentation, during which participants has worked with digital processes, encompassing fully automatized translations of conventional photos of artificial landscapes to three dimensional digital models through new photogrammatic tools.
The scanned landscaped formed the basis of an inquiry of architectural adaption to challenging topographies through the development of adaptive, parametric systems.
The landscapes and parametric structures were produced through digital fabrication processes via automated nesting and laser cutting.
For the last three weeks, 1st year students have designed and built 78 unique building fragments for the workshop “House of Fragments” by BENANDSEBASTIAN.
The 78 different fragments will, when connected to each other in the end, form one single house – a “house of fragments”. Each fragment is associated with a particular body part, a person characteristic and is designed for a specific home or user of interest. Come and see the final result!
Aarhus Arc: Three Acts is a workshop held by David Gersten, Cooper Union, from February 2nd to February 10th at Aarhus School of Architecture. During the workshop Juhani Pallasmaa and Alberto Perez Gomez will participate in Skype conversations with David Gersten and the students. These conversations will be open to the public and will take place February 4th and 6th at 4 pm both days.
The theme of the workshop is drawing and the final product be a 3,5 meter and 20 meter long arc with students drawings as a part of the arc. The work will be presented friday the 10th.
Autotile is the physical result of a collaboration between Aarhus School of Architecture (First year 2011/2012 + Digital Experimentation) and Egernsund Tegl.
The students were through the assignment introduced to parametric design and the use of cellular automata – a matematic principle for selforganizing systems.
In the video above, the students has documented the building process through video and time-lapse. The soundtrack is developed together with René Middelhede, student at The Royal Academy of Music, Aarhus.
The A3-sheets below is the result of an individual assignment, were students with a given techinque and individual focuses represented the work.
In the beginning of the fall semester 2011 all candidate students took part in a workshop called DIGITAL PHYSICAL. The aim of the workshop was digital experimentation. One of the four classes of the workshop, Performing Architectures, was led by Ruairi Glynn og Richard Roberts fra Bartlett School of Architecture. Works of the students was captured in the first video. The second video shows the actual presentation videos used for the final crit of the workshop.
