Workshop, 24-30 Mart 2012 tarihleri arasında İTÜ'de gerçekleşiyor.
The second edition of the programme, in collaboration with Istanbul Technical University, takes on the challenge of radically decomposing the current tower typology, which is dominated by repetition and segmentation, and redefining it in terms of verticality as differentiated dynamic systems. The design process will be influenced by an investigation into biological systems that have adaptive, multifunctional qualities. Translating the cultural connotations that are inherent in the geometrical organisation of crafted systems will enhance adaptation and is a key component to the course.
The school will rediscover verticality through novel computational techniques and physical prototypes by creating a connection with AA Athens Visiting School. An interactive platform will be initiated between the two schools, allowing the investigation of related generative methods and the development of an integrated design system which oscillates between two contrasting agendas, verticality and horizontality.
The deadline for applications is 3rd March 2012. All participants travelling from abroad are responsible for securing any visa required. After payment of fees, the AA can provide a letter confirming participation in the workshop. A portfolio or CV is not required, only the online application form and payment
The AA Visiting School requires a fee of £695 per participant, which includes a £50 Visiting Student Membership. If you are already a member, the total fee will be reduced automatically by £50 by the online payment system. Fees are non refundable.
Fees do not include flights. Accommodation during the workshop is not provided, but advice accommodation options can be advised. Students need to bring their own laptops, digital equipment and model making tools. Please ensure this equipment is covered by your own insurance as the AA takes no responsibility for items lost or stolen at the workshop.
The workshop is open to current architecture and design students, PhD candidates, young professionals and those with an interest in architecture. Current AA students and non-AA School applicants may apply.
