Maya-Grasshopper Workshop


08.07.2019-18.07.2019Μουσείο Μπενάκη - Κτίριο οδού Πειραιώς

ArchitectScripta is organizing an International intensive workshop of Advanced Architectural Design under the Thinking Tank of .:BLACK is Dark WHITE:. based on Maya and Grasshopper techniques. The ArchitectScripta Summer Workshop 2017 is led by ArchitectScripta Principal Nefeli Chatzimina (currently teaching at the National Technical University of Athens, previous teaching Architectural Studio at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles ), an allumni Graduate of Columbia University in New York City and Nikos Papavasileiou (ArchitectScripta Principal, currently teaching at the National Technical University of Athens).

ArchitectScripta Athens Workshop is organized under the auspices of the Hellenic Institute of Architecture and the Athens School of Fine Arts. Selected Participants will attend the computation design workshop, academic lectures, ­nal reviews and exhibition at Benaki Museum of Athens from 8th until the 18th of July 2019. Daily meetings will take place from 10am to 5pm at the Benaki Museum of Pireos 138 in Athens.

As part of an ongoing academic research, ArchitectScripta Workshops introduce participants into contemporary discussions of formal exploration in Architecture and Art. Through technical attainment of design and digitalproduction the ArchitectScripta Workshops give the  opportunity to students of Architecture and Art, Professional Architects, Designers and Artists to challenge new design territories. Our goal is to explore innovative, potential architectural expressions of the current discourse around Form through computational tools (Autodesk MAYA, Grasshopper Rhino). We will focus on technique elaboration, material intelligence, formal logic e‑ciencies and precision assemblies as an ultimate condition of design. The workshop will develop and investigate the notion ofpro­cient geometric variations at a level of  complexity, so that questions towards geometrical eectiveness, accuracy and performance can begin to be understood in a contemporary setting. The workshop is a discourse based in the use of multi-layered techniques and production processes that allow for control over intelligent geometries, calibration of parts, and behavioral taxonomies, normalizing an innovative held of predictability.
