Seminaari Generate – from algorithm to structure järjestetään perjantaina 30.10.2009 Oulussa, Oulun yliopiston arkkitehtuurin osastolla. Seminaarin kielenä on suomi ja englanti.
Seminaarissa perehdytään algoritmiavusteiseen suunnitteluun käytännössä. Ohjelmassa on kansainvälisiä huippuluentoja. Seminaarin luennoitsijat ovat: Michael Hensel (Saksa), David Serero (Ranska), Luis Fraguada (Espanja), Martin Tamke (Tanska) ja Markus Wikar (Suomi). Ohjelmassa on myös Algoritminen arkkitehtuuri -työryhmän jäsenien puheenvuoroja ja töiden esittelyjä. Seminaarin yhteydessä avataan Generate - From algorithm to structure – näyttely ja julkistetaan kirja. Tapahtuman päätteeksi juhlitaan arkkitehtikillan kiltatalolla.
Seminaariin otetaan 300 osallistujaa. Oulun yliopiston arkkitehtuurin osaston auditoriossa on 150 paikkaa, jotka on varattu ensimmäisinä ilmoittautuneille. Loput 150 paikkaa sijaitsevat Kulttuuritalo Valveen auditoriossa arkkitehtuurin osaston vieressä, jonne järjestetään videoyhteys.
Luis Fraguada, Spain
Luis Fraguada is the Global Director of Live architecture Network (LaN), a practice focused on DIGITAL DESIGN + FABRICATION as a means of forwarding composite processes/collaborations driving architectural development. He investigates critical issues in architecture, design, and urbanism through various modes, including parametric design, scripting, and fabrication. Luis pursued his masters degree in architecture and urbanism from the Architectural Association Design Research Laboratory (DRL) in London. A post-graduate degree in Digital Architectural Production at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) brought Luis to Barcelona, where he is currently based. Luis is active in both practice and academia as a tutor of Design Scripting and Parametric Design at IAAC. Luisís specialities are Digital fabrication, computation and design, scripting, 3d modelling, parametric design, parametric modelling, graphic design and educational management.
Michael Hensel is an architect, writer and principal researcher in OCEAN and the Emergence and Design Group, as well as a board member of BIONIS (the Biomimetic Network for Industrial Sustainability), and co-founder and co-director of the Emergent Technologies and Design masters programme at the Architectural Association School of Architecture. He is also on the editorial boards of AD and JBE (the Journal for Bionic Engineering). He has taught, lectured, exhibited and published world-wide. Michael Hensel is one of the international team Ocean North, a design practice drawing on a wide range of disciplines, that is at the cutting edge of architectural and urban design thinking. With Achim Menges Hensel has edited publications like Morpho-Ecologies in 2006 and Versatility & Vicissitudein in 2008. He is currently working on the concept and content for a peer-reviewed architectural research journal that will focus on research by design.
David Serero received an Architecture Degree from Ecole d'Architecture Paris-Villemin in 1998 and a Master of Architecture from Columbia
University. Since 2000, Serero develops in New York and in Paris, projects combining research and design in the fields of architecture, landscape
design and urban planning. With a particular interest in generative design, digital manufacturing, fluid dynamics, crystallography, acoustics, genetics
and topographical manipulation, his work by weaving connections between these fields and architectural practice attempts to explore new and
multiples paths for architectural design. His work has been widely published and exhibited in shows at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), at the
Architectural League of New York, the Venice Biennale, and the Mori Museum in Tokyo.
Martin Tamke is an Assistant Professor in Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, school of architecture. He is also a member of CITA : Center for Information Technology and architecture. CITA is an innovative research environment exploring the emergent intersections between architecture and digital technologies. Identifying core research questions into how space and technology can be probed, CITA seeks to investigate how the current forming of a digital culture impacts on architectural thinking and practice.
Markus Wikar is a Helsinki based architect who is working with projects ranging from furniture design to urban planning. He received an Architecture Degree from Helsinki University of Technology. He has a growing interest in computational methods that can be used for creating architecture and visual art.
