The AA dLab experiments with the possibilities of digital design tools and rapid prototyping techniques as highly integrated systems of design development. Starting in 2012, and taking green as our colour of choice, dLab will be launched into the field of visual appearance and sensations resulting from the presence of brightly coloured compositions.
Green – with its effects on human emotion and activity, its association with regeneration, fertility and rebirth, and its connections to nature – becomes our inspiration for observing natural and biological structures. In this setup, green goes beyond its role as a representational and graphic instrument, stimulating imaginative processes of vividness and becoming the factor that determines the methods of algorithmic applications for projects in the architectural realm.
Taking advantage of the AA premises in London, participants have full access to the public lecture programme and the AA Digital Prototyping Lab for the fabrication of prototypes/models in various mediums.
