Buenos Aires - Argentina

Dates to be confirmed

The production of architecture, and to a large extent our creativity, is increasingly conditioned by norms, the industrialisation of architectural elements and the design tools we use. While numerous digital design packages and manufacturers promise value less variation, the outcome is somehow predetermined. Rejecting this condition, we will reconsider the politics of construction to speculate on and develop elaborate, but nevertheless affordable, production strategies to counter the homogenisation of space. We will experiment with the integration of multiple design objectives into one form through an iterative process involving digital design techniques and form making. Rooted in socio-political contexts, our proposals will be grounded in experimentation, prototyping and material testing as a way of negotiating our ideas with the real. This will involve the making of 1 to 1 large scale tensile installations both socially purposeful and economical. 


The deadline for applications is TBC.

All participants travelling from abroad are responsible for securing any visa required, and are advised to contact their home embassy early. After payment of fees, the AA School can provide a letter confirming participation in the workshop.

The workshop is open to current architecture and design students, academics and young professionals. 
Participants need to bring their own camera equipment and laptops with the latest version of Rhino and Grasshopper installed. Please ensure this equipment is covered by your own insurance as the AA takes no responsibility for items lost or stolen during the workshop.
