 يسرها أن تعلن ورشة العمل

“in2space 2014 للسنة الثالثة “

التي ستجرى في برشلونا - اسبانيا يوم 4 سبتمبر 2014

الهدف من ورشة العمل هو إعداد الطلاب من مختلف التخصصات والبلدان للنهوض ضمن مجال التكنولوجية في الهندسة المعمارية، و دمج مجالات التصميم، الفن، والهندسة، والبناء والعلوم الطبيعية.

وستركز ورشة العمل على تحدي حدود التصميم التقليدية الممارسة في الهندسة المعمارية . وهي تسعى إلى إثارة إعادة النظر في الأساليب والممارسات ونظريات التصميم فيما يتعلق بمجالات الهندسة، والروبوتات، والتصنيع الرقمي وعلوم المواد والأحياء.

ورشة العمل أيضا سوف تزود المشاركين بفرصة اكتشاف برشلونا هذه المدينة الجميلة مع رؤية مهنية حول الهندسة المعمارية وثقافتها. وسوف توفر أيضا فرصة فريدة لزيارة استوديوهات الهندسة المعمارية و المدارس المعمارية الأكثر شهرة والاقتراب من الخبرة الأجنبية ومنهجياتها.

يتضمن البرنامج زيارات ميدانية لأهم المهندسين المعماريين والجامعات وخبرة المصممين، ويوفر بيئة ثقافية محفزة للغاية التي بدورها توفر مقدمة واسعة مكثفة لكل من مجالات الأزياء والتصميم، الفن المعماري .

سوف يتعلم المشاركون كيفية إعداد تصاميمهم لتكون جاهزة للتنفيذ باستخدام الليزر و الطابعات ثلاثية الابعاد ، التصنيع باستخدام الحاسب الآلي والتكنولوجيات ذات الصلة، وابراز اهمية الوعي بعملية التنفيذ و التي ينبغي أن تؤثر على عملية التصميم من بداية التفكير في التصميم.

في نهاية ورشة العمل سوف يحصل كل مشارك على شهادة رسمية للمشاركة موقعة رسميا من قبل المنظمين والمتعاونين ضمن الورشة من الجامعات والجمعيات ذات الصلة.

يغلق باب التسجيل ضمن الورشة في 15 تموز/ 2014.


MAGLAB, Syria – Spain – Italy (Materials- Advanced Architecture – Generative Laboratory) as a part of Maksoud Architectural Group, authorized training center of McNeel in the Middle East through its affiliate offices, is pleased to announce

In 2 S pace Workshop 2014 second edition“that will take place in BCN – Spain on September 4th 2014.

In 2S pace is a cutting-edge Workshop in Academia worldwide focusing exclusively on novel approaches to the [Architecture] emerging practice.

The goal of the workshop is to prepare students from different disciplines and countries for the continuing advancement of technological and computational processes in architecture, as they merge the fields of design, Art, engineering, construction and natural sciences.

The workshop will focus on challenging the design space boundaries of current architectural and engineering practice. It seeks to provoke a re-examination of techniques, practices and theories of design in relation to the fields of engineering, robotics, digital manufacturing, material science and biology.

The workshop also will provide participants to discover this beautiful city with a professional vision about its architecture and culture. It will provide also a unique opportunity to visit the most famous architecture studios and approach the foreign experience and its methodologies.

From the program kick-off, the multicultural active framework facilitates live learning through site visits to of the most important Architects, universities and designers experience , offers a highly stimulating cultural environment that provides a broad yet intensive introduction to a palette of fashion, design, Art and architectural -analytical and theoretical- backbones.

The workshop will explore how a digital and technologies view of design could be implemented in a real scale built product.

The output will be the development of the Participant’s skills with knowledge of computational design Systems.

The participants will learn how to prepare their designs to be fabricated by using laser cutter, 3d printer, CNC and related technologies and how the awareness of the fabrication process should affect their design process from the early beginning.

At the end of the workshop each participant will receive an official certificate of participation signed officially by the related workshop collaborators universities and associations.

The Workshop applications are online and close on 15th July 2014.

The lecture explored the development of a solar house from the solar decathlon competition which Luis entered. Students learnt that it is important to know how a house is going to work in terms of its climatic performance. Students also learnt about different projects such as Lumenhaus (Virginia technology), Lukku (University of Finland), and Eco (Universidad Politecnica de Cataluna). Students learnt about the importance of layering in a solar house envelope, insulation, microclimates, low energy, passive strategies and always using lowest energy embodied materials. The lecture also showed animations of wind analysis in Ecotect and CFD.

After that students had a chance to further discuss and ask questions about solar houses and sustainability in general.

Later students had a lecture by Architect Diego Cuevas; the lecture explored projects and competitions from ControlMad and Alfa 301 Advanced Architecture. Students learnt about the competition won for a sculpture in Valencia where the original idea was to study oranges from which he was able to develop a very schematic branching system. Students learnt about ControlMad and its workshops in Rhino, Ecotect, grasshopper and digital fabrication. The lecture also explored a project assigned by Arup Engineering which the architect is exploring.

Later students had the chance for questions and discussion. After that they further worked on the fabrication process and started to assemble on site.

The morning visit included Gaudi’s CASA BATLLÓ where we started with a tour of the casa which is now turned into a museum and exhibition. Students were able to observe more closely the detail and brilliance involved in Gaudi´s work.

The students concluded the morning visit with IAAC, institute for advanced architecture of Catalonia. They were greeted by the academic coordinator Nota Tsekourawho gave a tour of the institute; its advanced research programs in sustainability, urban design and digital architecture.Students also learnt about IAAC´s state of the art facilities such as 2D & 3D printers, laser cutters, milling machines and large format plotters.

After the tour the students were given a lecture by MAA Master Program Director Areti Markopoulou.  They were introduced to IAAC, its objectives, vision, and projects. The students also learnt about the Master courses in Advanced Architecture.  They also learnt about FABLAB; a laboratory for production, investigation, education and research.

Later in the afternoon the students went to ESARQ fora lecture by Carlos Perez Alba from McNeel Europe. They learnt about new versions of Rhino, its applications and services. They were introduced to some examples of production and fabrication such as ZahaHadid shoe, Adidas shoe, tiffany jewelry, etc. The students also learnt about many companies using Rhino in application such as in; jewelry design, yacht design, engineering, construction, industrial, marine, furniture, etc.

After that the students gathered to discuss material options and strategies of fabrication of the pavilion. They were divided into three groups; skin, scale, and strategy. They studied pavilion location on site, parameters, scale& size, folding techniques using Rhino, AutoCAD, hand drawing, hand folding and prototype experimenting.

2013 edition:The morning visit was dedicated to La SagradaFamilia where the students and MAGLAB team were greeted by Professor Albert Estevez their architectural tour guru for the Sagrada. They were also joined by Architect Francesco Cabay, Architect Suzana Martins and Architect Antonio IgnazioVacca. The students started the tour with an exhibition of Gaudi´s work in detail;where they were able to understand Gaudi’s work, motivation, inspiration, and strong connectionto nature.

After the exhibition students entered the SagradaFamilia interior; students walked around the 45 meter forest like columns, the central nave, the basilica, the colored stained glass and many more details within the interior. They also visited the museum which contained details of the construction; students were able to see miniature models and details of the Sagrada, the process and construction period.

 

Later in the afternoon we went to ESARQ for material research and experimentation. Students were divided into three teams; strategy, concept and skin. One group researched the urban city Damascus in general, the ancient Syrian house in specific and how it can relate to the site on a grid pattern. Students also studied sun direction of the site, shadows and the possibilityof using plants and vegetation to create shading. They also experimented with different materials producing several miniature prototypes using CNC and laser cutting machine. After that each group presented their idea and concept to the teachers for discussion and assessment.

After many ideas and many prototypes were developed for the pavilion, a selection of one project was chosen to research and further study to later be fabricated in full scale.
