It has been already a month from the second edition of Shapes of Logic event, however, we can not miss the chance to write a few words about this unprecedented event in Poland. The second time (report from the 2015 you can find also in our website) research group LabDigiFab invited students, PhD candidates and designers from all over the world to participate in Shapes of Logic conference. This year the main topic was Everything that’s surround us can be automated. Lectures and presentations presented during the three days conference (26-28.05.2017), as well as the problems solved during the preceding workshops (22-25.05.2017), where connected with the topic of usage of the robots and computer programming in design process. The organizers were very pleased, that many PhD students and designers attended the event and their experience allowed to show the possibilities of automation and robotics in contemporary design process.  More information about this topic you can also find on the LabDigiFab fanpage and the official website of the event.

The lectures of the two professors: Jerzy Rozenblit from The Univesity of Arizona and Thomas Bock from The Technical University of Munich have been met with great interest. Even though both of them usually work in the field of constructing a highly advanced (high-tech) robotics, they have presented the principles of working with the machines, which for most of the designers were known rather from the practical point of view. The completion of the theme was presentation of dr Johannes Braumann. The projects discussed by him during the speech has shown the full spectrum of possibilities in a creative usage of the machines.

The lectures of invited tutors, who agreed to lead two workshop’s clusters, turned out into great introduction of the evening discussion panels. This refers to presentation of Mateusz Zwierzycki and the group: Marvin Bratke, Paul Bart, Matthijas la Roi, who explained clearly on the basis of their own projects the unlimited possibilities which open up to the designers thanks to knowledge of programming languages.

During the four days of workshops Behavioural Network group learned how to use the space syntax analysis and the processing with Rhino and Grasshopper in therms of understanding and creating the new, better organized networks. New analitical and design tools were presented and implemented on the particular task what allowed the partcipans immediate practical usage of the theoretical knowledge. The intense work resulted in the three interesting and very different solutions for the revitalization and reconnection of the Grunwaldzki Campus in University of Wrocław.

In the same time, second group also had been focused on networks, with Owl library and Grasshopper plugin with a focus on scripting and writing .NET libraries. Using machine learning methods, participants tired to solve their own design problems.

The organizers were also very pleased to see that this year edition has gathered the most important polish specialists in the field of parametric design: Przemek Jaworski (Zmorph), Oskar Zięta (Zieta Prozessdesign), Michał Piasecki (tylko), again Mateusz Zwierzycki (CITA), Ewa Jankowska, Adrian Krężlik (Architectural Parametrics/Parametric Support) and Judyta Cichocka (Paramteric Support).

Just like two years ago the host of the conference was the Museum of Architecture in Wroclaw, where Gothic interior combined with the modern subject of presentations have allowed to contemplate not only available tools, but also the directions in which current creators are heading.

Almost 100 people took part into the event. We hope that the second edition is the announcement of the cyclic event and we will see each other again in 2019! :)
