C:R:A:S:H – Computer-Reactive Autonomous Systems and Hypermodal representation
The exhibition is the result of a 2-day workshop examining the role of semi-autonomous, 4-dimensional systems using scripts in Grasshopper and Kangaroo in relation to analytical investigations of architectural works of OMA.
The exhibition opens today at 15.30 in the foyer of the Exhibition building.
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!
EXHIBITION STARTS FRIDAY 30/03/12 IN MOCKUP
For the autumn term, “Aarhus” has been the common theme of the school, 800 of the school’s students have, consequently, been working with the city’s development. Under the heading Aarhus Urban Lab we have looked at Aarhus as an urban laboratory and a test field for our ideas.
Principal, Torben Nielsen: ”this is an obvious opportunity to take the school of architecture in the direction we would like: participating in concrete project-based cooperation with citizens, professionals and authorities that bring the student closer to the reality they will meet the day they leave the school of architecture. It is our wish that during their studies they should be given an opportunity to combine artistic and academic learning with the more practical skills of the profession. This should take place through close dialogue and, consequently, as a shared learning experience during which we engage with the world around us. Our vision is: Engaging through Architecture.
