What’s happening today in QUITO:

GSS Quito students are focusing on the ongoing research conducted at the Institute for Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) regarding the conceptual design of such lightweight structures. The workshop aims to explore non-standard dynamic articulations of form- and bending-active elements by bridging the gap between physical and digital models. During these days, GSS participants are exploring the integration of highly intuitive and interactive physically-based techniques within parametric and associative modelling environments, digital fabrication protocols and natural materials.
The goal is to fabricate a large-scale demonstrator to open a discussion on adaptive lightweight structures and its role in the sustainable development of our building environment. Today GSS Quito students will be given a lecture by Estudio Felipe Escudero about building in the post digital age.
