In September 2014, Encode studio is organizing a series of computational design workshops entitled CODE JAM in pursue of its recent practice and research projects to explore new modes of design production through physical and digital methods of computation. The workshops investigate different strategies of informed design techniques through, material behaviour, data flow from the physical environment, planar fabrication constraints for doubly curved surfaces, as well as, info-visualization techniques.
Participants will be introduced to a set of digital tools including but not limited to Rhino, Grasshopper, Arduino and Kinect. No prior knowledge of these tools is required.
//// Hypars workshop aims to develop the computational design techniques of complex organizations of hyperbolic surfaces from the structural to the ornamental scale in respect to the planar fabrication methods.
