Responsive Environments


Preliminary Schedule by mettert
August 9, 2009, 1:06 pm
Filed under: General

Every morning will start with a 15 min group meeting at 9 am collecting the sub-teams and reflecting on the days work.
The workshop is based on 3 key phases:
– LEARNING BY DOING: production of pre-configured installation. Here, the aim is to learn about the concepts, technologies and architecture through making. We will be constructing a first prototype installation together in the first three days of the workshop
– REFLECTION AND REFINEMENT: the prototype installation is both infrastructure and diagramme. In the second phase we will develop and refine parts, spatial ambition and concepts.
– PRODUCTION: we then build a fully functioning and final large scale installation

The first prototype installation will be reviewed and discussed together. We have also invited special guest reviewers and will hold a mini-collequium led by Rachel Armstrong from the Bartlett.
