FREE solidThinking Workshop "Computational Inspiration and Exploration" - CAAD futures 2009 Conference, Montreal, Canada
Monday, June 15th | 1:30 PM
Architects and product designers are in constant search of inspiration.
Nature has always been a source of inspiration, and particularly biological forms. While biological forms tend to be aesthetically interesting, they also tend to be efficient and highly functional because they are the product of environmental pressures.
Today, new technologies enable architects and product designers to simulate some of the processes and physical laws in nature with software algorithms, thus helping to generate forms in response to environmental stimuli.
What challenges and opportunities arise from defining environmental conditions and interpreting the forms that are generated? How do methods such as these complement traditional methods?
The FREE half day workshop will describe, with practical and visual examples, exciting new methods that have now emerged for architects and designers to generate and explore forms that are aesthetically interesting, often unexpected, and at the same time well adapted to their intended function.
Each participant should bring their own laptop.
Attendees at this workshop will be granted a 3-month license to solidThinking.
