Material Computation is a design strategy that can be utilized by controlling the inherent properties of the material (length, size, density, etc.) with the help of data and microcontroller. This course will explore ‘smart materials’ - which can be programmed for specific design challenges(climate, space usage, preferences, etc.) that can arise in a myriad of architectural situations. In the workshop, you will be able to integrate these concepts in your design projects, detail them and explore a new dimension in built environment design. Besides learning about existing cases and synthesizing their techniques, the workshop will also be about hands-on programming, prototyping in utilizing smart materials, their fabrication, working assembly detailing.

This course focuses on developing and integrating new materials Bi-metals like nitinol (memory retaining wire) into our architecture design workflow.

 

Classrooms will be conducted at SPARRO Studio, New Delhi

A maximum of 15 seats are allowed per batch of the workshop. 12 Seats available.
