Hooke Park, MakeLab

2018

April 2018 TBC

MakeLAB is a five-day programme engaging with computer-aided architectural design and fabrication experiments to explore new modes of design conception. Using Hooke Park’s forestry and workshop resources, this workshop offers the unique opportunity to explore innovative structures and methodologies at 1:1 scale.

This year the program will revolve around the theme of ‘nomadic structures’, creating inhabitable architectural spaces that can be relocated at different sites and in different contexts. Understanding performative aspects such as the filtering of light, views and privacy applicable to architectural envelopes, we will explore and construct prototypical systems that can be adapted within the sites of Dorset and London.
The workshop will result as a single collective project, assisted by specialist tutors from the AA. The programme is open to architectural students, teachers and professionals interested in collaborative discussion and hands-on exploration of experimental design+build processes.
