Workshops in Advanced Digital Tecnologies
Date/Time: February 13-14, 2010; 10am – 5pm
Cost: $100 students, $200 Professionals
The only constant in the relationship between design and technology is change. As designers we are inundated with new methods for the design, analysis, and fabrication of objects, buildings, and cities. In order to negotiate this dynamic relationship, we need ways to critically retool our design process. FORMATIONS, an annual event at the California College of the Arts, provides a platform for students and professionals in the design disciplines to explore, evaluate, and critique new technologies in an intensely productive atmosphere. FORMATIONS is a collaboration of the three research labs at CCA: MEDIAlab, URBANlab, and ECOlab. Each year the focus of the event evolves to reflect emerging research topics in the fields of architecture, landscape, and urban design in relationship to new media.
FORMATIONS 2010 will explore how emerging digital technologies can be used to engage the complex relationship between form, information and performance. Designers of buildings, landscapes and cities are increasingly searching for new analytic, synthetic, and generative tools that facilitate an integrative design process. FORMATIONS 2010 will investigate both established and experimental approaches to integrating parametric and performative modeling, information technologies, and interactive media. FORMATIONS 2010 will consist of a series of intensive two-day workshops that combine software tutorials with design charettes. The event will conclude with a public presentation and symposium.
