Global Architecture and Design, Fall 2015, Newsletter I
After the orientation days, students were excited to begin their classes at CIEE and IaaC. This term started with two intensive workshops: a Spanish language workshop at CIEE and a Digital Tools Workshop with Aldo Sollazzo at the IaaC Campus. During these 4 days at IaaC, students were making their first steps in parametric architecture, developing beautiful patterns using plug-in Grasshopper. On the last day of the workshop, students prepared small panels with parametric patterns using a laser cutter. The final output of the workshop was quite impressive, please check it out!
In order to make students familiar with other machines and fabrication methods, we organised a tour in FabLab Barcelona with Anya Popova, Fab Lab Barcelona Fabrication Assistant. After the FabLab tour we had a lecture with Guillem Camprodon, Fab Lab Barcelona Project Manager & Smart Citizen lead researcher, and a short introduction to the SmartCitizen project.
This past Monday the students also had their first Future Cities Design studio class, and they started to work on their draft proposals towards the design studio projects. We will see how the project continues...!!
