AA Visiting School Madrid 2015 - UEM (European University of Madrid) TRANS-COMPUTATIONAL MEMBRANES 3.0

Trans-computational membranes 3.0 will continue exploring computational design methods through the use of digital-analogue experimentation, challenging the way we conceive flexibility within the context of spatial re-adaptation as a driver for social change. Time-based dynamic systems will transform the digital–analogue divide through networks of instantaneous spatial deployment creating a symbiotic spatial context that examines new-era demands. The workshop will re-think membrane structures from the micro to macro organization resulting in a habitable prototype. Through the investigation of different scales, tensile structures will primarily be re-adaptive environments, searching for dynamic stability while responding to new spatial necessities. Natural-based models will be challenged through a continuous dialogue between analog and digital experimentation, where material processes and fabrication techniques are incorporated within a digital working methodology, analyzing material behavior from Nano-scale patterns to the production of physical prototypes at 1:1. Students will take part exploring varied modeling and generative design workshops aimed at digital fabrication of textile prototypes. The course will be taught by tutors from the AA and the UEM who specialize in simulation techniques and generative design, being assisted by experts in textile materials as well as tensile structures alongside studio-based design tutorials. A series of lectures will address topics related to dynamic architectural models, adaptive systems and patterning experimentation for spatial deployment.

Application The deadline for applications is 1 August 2015. All participants travelling from abroad are responsible for securing any visa required, and are advised to contact their home embassy early. After payment of fees, the AA School can provide a letter confirming participation in the workshop. The AA Visiting School requires a fee of £695 per participant, which includes a £60 Visiting. If you are already a member, the total fee will be reduced automatically by £60 by the online payment system. Fees are non refundable.

Fees do not include flights or accommodation, but accommodation options can be advised. Students need to bring their own laptops, digital equipment and model making tools. Please ensure this equipment is covered by your own insurance as the AA takes no responsibility for items lost or stolen at the workshop.

PAVILION FLEXIBLE PROTOTYPE

Trans-computational will continue challenging the way we conceive flexibility within the context of spatial re-adaptation as a driver for social change. The construction of a third edition of our textile pavilion will take place during the workshop. The focus will be to establish a prototype of a larger operation, where computational techniques and the use of flexible materials make possible the creation of affordable inhabitable spaces, making use rapid deployment to facilitate the re-adaptation of the designed space responding to social necessities in an incredible short time-frame. The real scale prototype will aim to create a space where health is a particular feature as a way to respond to the demands of the 21st century, where the necessity of space fluctuates continuously. In a larger term it will establish the basic principles for a rapid reoccupation system, offering basic and temporal spaces to who really needs them and at the time frame that is being required. The pavilion will be design prior to the Workshop, however the construction will occur during the ten days, allowing the students to participate in the construction process as a short exercise, 1 or 2 days, within the Visiting School, helping to develop collaborative skills and responses to real life scenarios, coupled with the use of digital fabrication. Forster Rohner will introduce introduce advance technology in the pavilion, they are leaders in 'textile interconnection of electronic components on fabrics, the development of miniaturized electronic components and their textile integration as well as the combination of functional and aesthetic embroideries.' Philips HUE lighting technology will be used as well, transforming the pavilion in a breading lighting structure. The pavilion will be featured in a series of documentaries (2014-2013 editions: https://vimeo.com/84081635 & https://vimeo.com/ 109850666) and will be exhibited at Roca Gallery Madrid during the week of Architecture (Semana de la Arquitectura). Note: Construction of the pavilion is conditional to Sponsorship
