Tuesday 2 – Sunday 7 April 2013
MakeLAB is a six-day programme engaging in pioneering architectural fabrication processes. Using innovative custom-built digital devices and design workflows, the programme aims to explore new modes of design conception through the real-time translation of environmental and social performance data. Using Hooke Park’s unique forestry and workshop resources to build 1:1 structures, the workshop enables an iterative development and critical evaluation of experimental methodologies in real life. Results from previous editions of this workshop have been published internationally and the tutor team each year is comprised of experienced specialists from within and outside of the AA.
The programme will consist of two or three parallel workshops projects, complimented by seminars, presentations and tutorials led by experts from academia and industry. Participants will be asked to collaborate in teams, in roles according to their particular interests and ambitions. The programme is aimed at people without prior knowledge of scripting or digital
fabrication as well as those with experience in emerging architectural production technologies.For updates on the programme and tutor team please visit the programme website.
