WF_092: 17th – 21st of August in Warsaw

24 08 2009

WF_092 was a workshop about parametric modeling and digital fabrication which took place from 17th till 21th of August 2009 in Warsaw. We would kindly like to thank Bentley Systems and sztuka-architektury.pl for their valuable help in organizing it. Our parametric tool was Generative Components and digital fabrication tool was a 2d water jet.

17th of August begun with a general introduction to computational design: from computational forms to the potential of artificial intelligence in design. An introduction to computational design tools such as parametric modeling, scripting and programming followed.We have spent the rest of the day on type-along GC tutorials.

18th of August begun with an introduction to computer aided manufacturing. From then on workshop’s participants worked in teams on parametric designs of urban furniture.

A mock-up of one of the designs was manufactured using water-jet and assembled on the 21st of August.

We would like to thanks to all of the participants for their inspiring and hard work.

Below is a video screen capture of the manufactured model in GC and a couple of images of the final piece:

WF_092 is currently taking place

20 08 2009

We are currently tutoring WF_092 – a Generative Components and digital fabrication workshop in Warsaw. It is organized in collaboration with Bentley Systems and sztuka-architektury.pl. The workshop begun on 17th on August. We have spent four days on modeling and scripting in GC at the premises of Bentley Systems’ division in Poland. Tomorrow we are visiting the water jet fabrication facility in order to cut out and assemble urban furniture designed by workshop’s participants
