Hyper Visual Compositions

-computational design,- design fiction,- environmental design,-space architecture,- urban design | - online workshop | -English


Required Skills: Grasshopper, Rhinoceros, basic level of scripting

Required Software: Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, Twinmotion

Required Hardware: PC or Laptop (Windows PC is allowed, We dont take the responsibility for the challenges you would face for Mac IOS)
Maximum number of participating students: 100

In this course participants will investigate possible novel environments through simultaneous exploration of form, material, and light. Applicants will explore the 3D deformation of model forms as a departure point to create an unique ensemble.  We will start by looking at letters in different fonts with a variety of characteristics for our formal exploration. Selected letters will be used as the geometrical base component. Familiarity of the character will play a significant role. We will continue by constructing, deconstructing, and abstracting the letters to make an unfamiliar geometry using different iterative methods. Every stage will involve the creation and evolution of a 3D singular object, and with the use of a real time render engine, participants will play with various materials, lights, and the camera to create fantastical effects. Working in this design environment, they will quickly generate large quantities of 3D-models and images. The intention is to get participants familiar with parametric design tools and introduce them to new design methods through different exercises. As an outcome of the workshop, each participant will create a series of images that outline or tell a story of the letters transformation.

Elif Gamze Dedeler After graduating from Bilkent University as a honour student in 2018, she started her Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree in Architectural Design Computing in İstanbul Technical University (ITU). She had also pursued M.B.A degree at Bilkent University. Her research focuses on interactive evolutionary algorithms and computational design cognition. She is interested in design optimization, data visualization and parametric design. She is currently working as a computational designer at GenX Design and Technology, New York based architecture office. As a part of her practice she focuses on generative design technologies, BIM integrated project management solutions and building automation systems from concept to fabrication level.
