“AFTER CHALLENGES AND
PRESPECTIVES OF
LANDSCAPE MANAGEMENT”

 

 

After a decade of application of European Convention
Landscape (Florence, 2000) it is necessary to take stock of
implementation and, above all, taking as reference pose challenges
future. As is known, the Convention is the first treaty
exclusively devoted to international protection and management
European landscape.

IaaC Summer School - Fab Labs and Informalism

 

RanchDigital and the Intersticial spaces are projects developed at the 'Fab Labs 
and Informalism Workshop' of the IaaC Summer School 2010, which took place at IaaC 
and Fab Lab Bcn in August 2010.
The Final Presentation took place on the 11th of August with the visit of the Dean of 
the  Central University of Venezuela - Cicilia Arocha, IaaC Director - Vicente 
Guallart, IaaC Co-Director - Willy Muller, and local and international visitors.
The group of 40 - students, professors and professionals - worked together for two 
weeks designing, fabricating and assembling the projects.
Intersticials spaces : project was made out of the remaining structure of the Media 
House Project developed by IaaC and MIT in 2001. Wood being the construction 
material, the project looks into the creation of urban furniture and homeless refuge 
for people living in latinamerican streets.
Rancho digital project : a basic housing unit of 12 square meters, fabricated out of 
the remaining pieces of wood from the Fab Lab House Project developed at IaaC last 
June for the Solar Decathlon Europe competition. The rancho recovers the idea of the 
parametric design related with the low – tech construction methods in the Caracas’ 
Barrios. Future plans includes the construction of the prototype in Petare, Caracas - 
the biggest slum in Latin America.
The Fab Labs and Informalism Workshop recovers the mixture of different aspects of 
design, materiality and technology. The projects were developed on the basis of 
collaborative design, recycling, digital fabrication and do it yourself approaches.
Workshop Faculty: Tomas Diez, Luis Fraguada
Collaborators: James Brazil, Fabio Lopez, Natalija Bolsjakov, and Brian Miller

FabLab House in Solar Decathlon Europe Competition_June 17-28/2010

FabLab House, www.fablabhouse.com, is participating in a 10 day competition of the Solar Decathlon Europe 2010 with a presentation on the 22nd of June in Madrid. 

Exhibition Opening<Fabrication Laboratory<DHUB<June 15th

On Tuesday June,15th the Fabrication Laboratory Exhibition will be opening at the Design Museum of Barcelona (DHUB)

The upcoming event being organised by the DHUB consists of not one but a series of activities (exhibitions, real-time fabrication laboratories, workshops, lectures, etc.) that offer a comprehensive overview of 3D digital manufacturing technologies, a new reality in constant evolution that is producing a fundamental transformation of design and production processes.

The exhibition format of the Fabrication Laboratory is an open infrastructure, allowing its initial form to be modified and expanded as new content is produced. As a result, the laboratory will gradually consolidate a process of ongoing analysis of the new scenario in the field of production.

The DHUB FAB LAB  will be functioning as part of the exhibition, a fabrication laboratory connected to the Fab Lab Network and setup by the Fab Lab Bcn, equipped with machines to make (almost) anything. This Fab Lab will offer different workshops and activities which could be found at: http://www.dhubfab.com.

The exhibition is curated by Marta Malé-Alemany, Co-Director of MAA and it is designed by IAAC.
