Two 3-day workshops will be taught by members of CORE studio at the Acadia 2015 Conference in Cincinnati.
Elçin Ertugrul, Mostapha Sadeghipour Roudsari, and Chris Mackey will be teaching a workshop named “Open Geo Data + Performance.” The workshop focuses on computational tools and workflows for exploring, analyzing and visualizing large, complex and dynamic geospatial data in a parametric visual scripting environment. Through a series of hands-on tutorials, attendees will be introduced to several different methods of quantitative environmental analysis using geospatial ‘Open Data’ and temporal climate data. Participants will practice different techniques of optimization and solution-finding, such as “brute force and filtering” and “multi-objective analysis” in order to address a number of design exercises presented during the workshop.
Ana Garcia Puyol will team up with Shane Burger, Director of Design Technology at Woods Bagot, to teach “Prototyping Experiential Future.” This workshop will engage the architect’s shift from prototyping form to prototyping experience by providing a simulation space for an architecture of dynamic experiences. Through the use of a realtime visualization engine, workshop participants will design interactive environments to simulate active engagements within dynamic spaces. Dynamics could range from functional to comfort to more playful and artistic virtual installations that will allow for creative collaboration between participants.
