London Digital Week: void exhibit (AAC)
If you are in London by the end of September void exhibit (AAC) is an event not to be missed. It’s the end of the year show of Msc Adaptive Architecture and Computation, starting at 6.30 pm on 25th of September. The venue is Arup’s “Phase 2 Exhibition Space”. Here is an excerpt from the exhibition description:
“The work combines computational models and physical pieces that address the themes of embedded, embodied and adaptive architecture. Each piece represents a scientific exploration of computation in the design process. There are analyses of space and structure, artificial intelligence techniques applied to design performance, and emergent systems built around bodily relationships between space and technology.”
Digital Hinterlands Exhibition will definitely be worth visiting as well. The exhibition, curated by Ruairi Glynn in collaboration with Arup, features works by recent graduates of the Bartlett, Architectural Association, Royal College of Arts and University of Westminster. Marilena Skavara’s “Adaptive Fa[ca]de” is this year’s Msc AAC thesis project which became part of this exhibition. You can find a description of this project below:
“Marilena Skavara’s ‘Adaptive Fa[ca]de’ explores the functional possibilities and performative characteristics of cellular automata (CA). In addition to the unique emergent behaviour of CA, a neural network enables a further computational layer to evolve CA behaviour to the context of its surrounding environment. Building upon the early work of Conway’s ‘Game of life’ and Stephen Wolfram’s extensive research on the wider implementation of CA, Skavara’s facade becomes a living adapting skin, constantly training itself from the history of its own errors and achievements.”
One more event which sounds very well is Digital Architecture London conference.
Discussions are divided into five thematic panels:
Alan Penn, Brett Steele and Hanif Kara are just of a few from many great academics and practitioners which will share their perspectives on computation and design. Take a look at the programme of the event for more details.
All three events are part of London Digital Week.
