In spring 2011, the AA will hold its first Istanbul Global School in collaboration with Istanbul Technical University. This 10 day long intensive team-based workshop, taught by recent AA graduates/ AA staff, will explore tall structures through vertical growth algorithms by focusing on local crafts.
Invited lecturers include Patrik Schumacher (Partner/ Zaha Hadid Architects), and Michael Weinstock (Director, AA Emtech Programme).
The parametric toolset for the studios will be Rhino, Grasshopper, scripting within Grasshopper using VB.net, and Processing. The exploration of diverse parametric platforms and their associated outcomes will enable the participants to grasp the discrete approaches taken towards parametric design. The students are expected to organize themselves into teams of 3-4 people. After a brief common module that introduces students to Rhino, Grasshopper, Processing, and a scripting crash course, the studio will be split into units, focusing on the same objectives with different briefs.
The deadline for applications is 18 March 2011. A late deadline of 1 April 2011 is also in effect, but this will incur a £50 surcharge. Application forms and additional information are available online at:
