pre-symposium activities IASS - Workshops & Master classes
To Sunday 24 September 2017 - 05:00pm
The IASS 2017 committee invites professionals, PhD-candidates and students to participate at Pre-Workshops and Master Classes taking place between September 20th-24th, 2017, at HCU Hamburg (three to five days before the IASS conference).
Workshops and Master Classes will explore the role, design and critical reflection of computational design methods, design tool environments and fabrication techniques with special focus on simulation of complex geometries and structural systems. Master Classes (MC) address specialists and aim at the exchange of knowledge on an advanced level. In Workshops (WS) experience will be gained together and exchanged.
Both formats – MC and WS – explore specific structural types, the interlinking of material systems, as well as fabrication methods. The means are hands-on knowledge and tool-sharing. The approach can be based on software or hardware, creating digital and | or physical design studies and | or prototypes.
The results will be presented as part of a warm-up event on Sunday evening prior to the conference. We anticipate the Workshops will include 10 to 20 participants from industry, research as well as architectural and engineering study programs. Master Classes should include 8 to 15 participants from academia and industry.
