Digital Fabrication technologies have the disruptive potential to revolutionize the way we conceive and shape our environment. Through the use of novel fabrication techniques designers and engineers are challenged to explore innovative structures that benefit from the capacity to produce performative and sustainable architecture with, up to now, unreached levels of complexity and strategic material organization.

The Summer School will focus on exploring ideas and producing design artifacts as answer to some fundamental driving questions: what kind of tectonic configurations can be enabled by means of digital fabrication such as additive and robotic manufacturing? How do we realize high-performance architecture with it? How can we build bespoke architecture in a sustainable way?

Adopting a design/make approach, catalyzed through tailored computational techniques, various structural configurations will be investigated. The school outcomes will be contributing to the creation of an atlas of digitally fabricated tectonic prototypes: experimental architectural configurations where material/form/structure are developed in a coherent design approach which takes full advantage of the potential of emergent fabrication techniques.

Mandatory prerequisites: Complesion of at least two academic years in the fields of Architecture, Engineering and Design.
Recommended prerequisites: Students should be interested in or curious about digital design and innovative fabrication methods.

Odense

Description

At Campus Odense 800 researchers and nearly 12 000 students every day work on discovering new knowledge, realisation, and education. Campus Odense is also home to The University Library of Southern Denmark which supports research and education through books and access to databases.

A web of cycle lanes connects Campus Odense with the inner city. A city filled with leisure offers for both students, researchers, and teachers.
