Join us tomorrow for the Self-Sufficient Buildings Research Studio 2nd Term Presentation:

10.00am - 6.00pm

Senior Faculty : Enric Ruiz Geli + Mireia Luzárraga

Self Sufficient Buildings Studio works on scales that range from urban blocks to individual buildings developing principles and techniques for homes, that serve to organize the materialization of programmatic nodes of activity based on natural rules and principles.

As a result, the building goes beyond being a mere interface for the economic activities it houses to being an environment that stimulates its inhabitants and functions as an active part of the ecosystem in which it is inserted.

Fab Lab Bcn Workshops // March-April 2014

Fab Lab Bcn Workshops Program

March-April 2014

The program is oriented to the development of intesive workshops held on weekends. Each workshop will give an introduction to the programmes used (Rhinoceros, RhinoCam, Arduino,Makerware etc), as well as developing the entore process towards the design and fabrication of a finalised product. This will be fulfilled thanks to the technologies offered by the Fab Lab itself, among which CNC milling machines, laser cutters, 3D printers, Kuka Robot, digital embroidery...etc.

The workshops are aimed at anyone with or without previous experience in these fields, and who wish the introduce themselves into to the world of Digital Fabrication, the MAKER movement and physical interaction within the Global Fab Lab Network.

The materials will be provided by the Fab Lab Bcn, and participants will be able to take their creations home with them.

 

22-23 March 2014 // Demo-Arduino

29 March 2014 // Arduino Day 2014

5-6 April 2014 // Arduino Basics

10-11 April 2014 // 3D Printing

DAC Workshop - IaaC Alumni

DAC - Diseño Ambiental Computacional

18th - 28th of March, Nicaragua

IaaC Alumni Event

Organised by: Rodrigo Aguirre (MAA02 @IaaC 2011-2013), Iker Luna (MAA01+OTF @IaaC 2012-2013) and Mauricio Valenzuela (MAA01 @IaaC 2012-2013)

DAC is based on the study of tools for advanced design aiming to create new strategies for design and graphic representation. These tools will be used by students and professionals towards new working paths and managing information in the field of design.

The increment in the availability and use of tools towards environmental simulations within parametric and generative design programmes, facilitates the interaction of environmental factors in the design process from the first stages, bettering the design efficiency, building performance and the creation of performative models in a sustainable and ecological framework.
