SUMMER WORKSHOP- DELHI / NCR
The workshop aims at instilling the concepts, tools and techniques to create an ‘Iconoclastic Tower’ based on feedback loop mechanism, thereby creating robust and efficient architectural forms. Iconoclastic architecture breaks away from the perception of an ‘Icon’ which has been represented by a vertical hi-rise structure in the last few decades and thereby creates architecture which challenges the perception of the typology, conversely creating iconic architecture.
Iconoclastic Towers will focus on creating integrated architectural forms where the various systems and sub-systems respond to each other, thereby creating a coherent design. Natural formations and biological systems will be studied to create a rule-based system governing the system of the tower itself.
Iteration based digital and physical models will be generated as an investigation for an optimum solution for the typology.
The workshop will be an intense tutorial and team based mode of learning. The techniques learned will be applied by the students on the project being worked upon in the workshop.
Prototyping will be done to conclude the workshop of a system whereby the concept of digital design techniques will be advanced to digital fabrication.
