Who’s interested can just grab a pdf file of the whole 91 page keynote here (quite a large file).
I talked about some projects I did (some together with Veronica Popescu) over the last two years, always insisting on the computational approach and detailing the techniques used.
I presented scripting approaches and more interactive (parametric) grasshopper based modeling. Some Processing based approaches were presented and I insisted on the necessity of using multiple open tools that can be made to communicate between one another.
I tried to clearly mark out the relationship between fabrication and the overall design – how material properties and building techniques inform the design and viceversa.
Reactions were good, and it seems computational approaches are definetively stirring people up.
Thanks are required to Patrick Bedarf, who made this possible and is proving to be an excellent host in Leipzig, and also to prof. Henning Rambow for all the support.
Also if you are reading this from Leipzig and are interested in joining us tommorow at 16.oo @ HTWK computer pool for some hands-on grasshopper work, there’s no one stopping you.
