Shapes of logic – Wrocław 2015 – international conference of parametric design

April 20th, 2015 1 comment

Museum of Architecture, Wrocław has become perfect background for discussion about design tools which are used nowadays by designers. During the international conference Shapes of logic, which has been placed in Wrocław in March 13th-15th, 2015, students and lecturers from Greece, USA, Italy, Austria, Slovakia, Canada, France, Netherlands and Poland showed us their presentation about parametric design. The conference was the biggest event of this kind in Poland (almost 100 participants). The conference was organized by students research group of digital fabrication LabDigiFab (www.labdigifab.com) and Student’s government of the Faculty of Architecture in Wrocław. Shapes of logic showed similar level of knowledge about parametric design in participants countries. This phenomenon allows to put Polish academic centers on an equal footing with foreign centers. A lot of interest and positive opinions about Shapes of logic encourage organizers to reissue Shapes of logic conference and workshops in 2016.

Three days conference program primarily included student academic presentations, which have been enriched by lectures of foreign guests like: Volker Mueller, Robert Vierlinger or co-founders of Italian group Code-it – Alessio Erioli & Andrea Graziano. We cannot forget about Polish representatives of parametric design including Mateusz Zwierzycki or Michał Piasecki.

Participants, guests and organizers evening meetings had been turned into all night discussions which resulted in establishing design and academic research cooperation. An innovative approach to make a discussion was oxford debate which took place on Friday. Participants began to exchange their opinions on theme: Do we need (virtual) reality? The debate was conducted by Prof. Aleksander Asanowicz from Białystok University of Technology. Discussion between two sides led to surprising conclusions which we are going to present here on next article.

SUMMER IS HERE – TIME FOR NEW WORKSHOPS !
ASK Summer School is an initiative to gather students, architects and artists for a two-week
learning-working session. During the workshop we will be facing the aspect of modularity in
architectural design using the most contemporary design tools. The module we will be working
with is LED tube light. The goal is to use the tube light both as a structural and responsive
element to create a working structure.

PARTICIPANTS
Everybody who wants to learn about new tools in design process or enhance their knowledge
and apply it in real project. The program is mainly aimed at students of Architecture, Fine Art,
Design, etc., but everybody interested in architecture, parametric design, fabrication and
interactive installations is welcome. The number of participants is limited.

KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED
Knowledge of architectural or artistic installation design along with basic knowledge of any 3d
modeling software is required.

KNOWLEDGE GAINED
Every participant will be introduced to parametric design tools, fabrication technology and
open-source electronics prototyping. The software covered (in different levels) is: McNeel’s
Rhinoceros 3d, Grasshopper 3d and Arduino.

CERTIFICATION
Participants will receive an official certificate for successful completion of the workshop
acknowledging the software use and digital fabrication experience.

ORGANIZATION
ASK (Architecture for Society of Knowledge) is a master program organized by the Architecture
and Urbanism department at Warsaw University of Technology. It’s dedicated to those who wish
to extend their practical understanding of contemporary architecture and urban planning. The
program addresses digital media in design, prototyping with computer controlled machines,
distributed design collaboration, and agendas for sustainable, intelligent building.

DATES
