Exp.Arch. IBK REX|LAB goes Vienna.
Architecture Challenge 2013 - Robotic Infiltrations
06.28 - 07.07 @ Die Angewandte (Vienna)
The “ARCHITECTURE CHALLENGE”
program is an international design workshop series organized by Andrei
Gheorghe and Bence Pap in collaboration with international experts and
institutions. It is intended for architecture students interested in
exploring integrated digital design and fabrication while simultaneously
designing a full-scale built project within the teaching environment of
the Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts in
Architectural Design at
the Angewandte is taught as an integrated, multidisciplinary process.
Following this tradition, the design process will be enriched with
robotic design strategies combining Grasshopper plugins such as the HAL and KARAMBA
platforms. Specialists from the Institute of Architecture and invited
guest experts Georg Grasser, Kadri Tamre and Thibault Schwartz from
Technical University Innsbruck will co-tutor the workshop. The handling
of virtual simulation methods and the engineering of full-scale
structures using robotic manufacturing will be a primary focus of the
workshop. Three ABB industrial robots will be used for on-site
fabrication. This workshop will result not only in built structures and
environments, but will also inform and prepare interested students for
the architecture study program at the Angewandte.
