Strings – Interactive Fabric Pavilion as an element of a new generation of digital design
Strings- it is a project which was done this year on workshops at the AA Visiting School Sao Paulo (12-21 July 2011). It belongs to Cynthia Nojimoto, Flavia Ghirotto Santos, Gilfranco Alves, Humberto da Mata and Rafael Morozowski Ardjomand. Strings project was designed under surveillance of tutors, such as: Anne Save de Beaurecueil, Franklin Lee, Robert Stuart-Smith, Thiago Mundim, Ernesto Bueno, Yoojin Kim, Arthur Mamou-Mani, Lucas de Sordi, Victor Sanderberg, Affonso Orciuoli, Sandro Tubertini. The aim was to show innovative example of flexibility and interactivity. Authors of Strings used fabric, cables, arduino board and servo motorand plywood as materials. They wanted the final product to interact between users and the environment with the proposed architecture. The result is really fascinating and this video proves it. Impresive creativity!
The aim of the whole programme of AA Sao Paulo High – Low Design Workshop was to define new generation of digital design by creating innovative computational and ecological projects by using of digital fabrication processes. This workshop takes place every year and it is a part of the Electronic Language International Festival. Both professional architects and students can take part in lectures and many courses including e.g. instruction in parametric modelling, environmental simulation software, digital fabrication processes using laser-cutting and physical models and one-to-one prototypes. Participants can learn about Rhino Grasshopper, Arduino, Processing.
