This 4 day intense workshop is dedicated to develop techniques and concepts of parametric processes as
instruments for architectural design and fabrication using the latest version of the parametric software Rhino
Grasshopper. Students are going to develop parametric structures in a digital way and will then fabricate them inform of a physical model. The workshop includes a general Introduction to Parametric Design and Fabrication, four professional Grasshopper Tutorials, lectures about Architecture Theory and Non- Linear Design Strategies, short presentations about the recent work of the organizing staff, and finally, the Fabrication using the Lasercutter. It is a central part of the learning process to take all steps of the process – from design to fabrication. The international team of tutors and METU tutors will provide technical assistance and accompany all individual projects from the initial idea to the digital modelling and the fabrication process.
The workshop will be an intense and exciting experience for all participants. On Thursday the 9th of December 2011 all results will be exhibited at the Faculty of Architecture at METU, Ankara. Opening of the Exhibition will be at 19.00. The final presentations will be held at 17.00 that same day.
