Posted by Administrator



We are happy to announce the second iteration of the AA Visiting School in Bangalore : 02 -11 September 2011

please visit :
http://zha-code-education.org/
for detailed info : content, tutors etc.

Seats are limited and open to students of all nationalities.

There is not a pre-requisite to know any of the software that will be used during the course. The workshop is open to current architecture and design students, recent graduates, young professionals, and design teachers looking to augment their digital skills from India and elsewhere. The workshop will benefit students looking to pursue post graduate studies / research in architecture as also architectural firms looking to train their staff.

Working in the physical space of the Autodesk gallery , and in close proximity to Autodesk labs at San Fransisco , has been truly inspirational . The gallery hosts lots of geeky exhibits showcasing cutting edge technology including the Texai robot , perceptive pixel , Augmented reality installations among others .

Autodesk idea studio residency , san fransisco 
Monday, July 26, 2010, 01:55 PM - Maya.c++.api., Geometry, Research, production pipeline
Posted by Administrator



Currently pursuing a 8-week residency called Idea Studio at the Autodesk offices in San Fransisco. Idea studio is run by Kimberly Whinna , senior brand manager at Autodesk and is "a residency program for designers, engineers, artists, and scholars who are pursuing innovative projects that push design technology to its limits to solve real-life problems."

ZHA | CODE and Autodesk have had various on-going conversations on research agendas related to contemporary architectural design, software technology and production pipelines. Hopefully this residency will cement the relationship further.

My experience thus far into the residency has been a real pleasure. I have to thank Kimberly Whinna and Brian Pene ( Research strategist , CTO group) , for their assistance, and advise in setting up the scope and prospects of the research thus far . It has been exciting to be advised by pioneering figures such as Jos Stam , Duncan Brinsmead , and Robert Aish and interact with experienced researchers including Eddy Kuo and Sualp Ozel .

The abstract of the proposal is presented below. Work in progress will be posted soon .

Solution Spaces.
Physically based simulations & form finding and geometric approximation for procedural architectural modelling.
This short term research proposal posits itself within the argument for parametric design research to focus its efforts on design methods that enable an operative pathway from design intent to its manifestation. The intention is to investigate the use of physically-based parameters as effective constraints in design development. Central to this proposal is the belief that design technologies should enable real-time interaction between designer and the computational model.
