BIO-STRUCTURES

2 days workshop | 06-07th Jul | 20 seats available

The workshop will teach linking parametric design with structural and environmental simulation plug-ins to create a computationally controlled, ecologically responsive architecture defined by organic, form-found structures with dynamic solar-mediation devices.
