IAAC Global Summer School 2018 - Iaac Global Summer School

IAAC Global Summer School is an intensive two week course that connects each participant to ongoing research agendas in robotics, simulation, physical computing, parametric design, digital fabrication, and other relevant emerging design methodologies.

During the course, specific emphasis is placed on understanding the multiscalar implications of design conclusions, thus creating critical research advanced on the application of new technologies in design.

Each year, international teams located in key cities around the globe explore a common agenda with projects that are deeply embedded in diverse local conditions. GSS 2018 agenda counts 15 international nodes and its program is focused on DIGITIZE, global brief and topic of this new edition.

Broadband connectivity, cloud computing, social media, sensors are coming together, changing the way we interact, consume, transport, shaping a new urban landscape blurred by digital and physical stimuli. This process is called “digitization”.

The pervasive adoption of a wide variety of digital, real-time, and networked technologies, products, and services enable people, companies, governments, and even machines to stay connected and communicate with one another, gathering, analyzing, and exchanging massive amounts of information on all kinds of activities.The construction sector has been slow to adopt process and technology innovations, unable to apply a digitization among main categories of labor, usage, and assets.The area where its most lacking is providing digital tools to their workforce. Integration of technologies into everyday life reveal that tech has just penetrated the sector.

How will implementing these tools affect the way of designing, living and interacting in new habitats, finally shaping a new digital consciousness of our environments?

As part of the GSS18 program, students will define strategies for the applications of Advanced Digital Design Strategies as essentials mean for the change. Testing the combination of software and hardware students will explore real-time data capture, energy generation, storage and reuse, material adaptability, real-time management of time-uses and citizen-space interaction.

GSS programme will run from the 2nd to the 14th of July 2018: workshops, lectures and prototyping will happen at the same time in IAAC > Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and different geographic Institutes worldwide.
Applications are open!
