[para]tectonics – DTAL expo @ Anuala de Arhitectura, Bucuresti

We are very pleased to announce the opening of [para]tectonics – a DTAL exposition presenting of all the workshops and events we’ve managed to put together so far (includes back-lit models!). It wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication and talent of our participants!

You can find it at Sala DALLES, near the University square. The Grand Opening is on Friday, 2nd of July at 18.00. It’s part of Bucharest’s Anual of Architecture, 2010.

Everyone’s invited!

versiunea [ro]:

In cadrul manifestarilor legate de arhitectura parametrica si algoritmica domnul Neil Leach va sustine o conferinta in Sala Frescelor a UAUIM marti 18 mai 2010, ora 1230.

Neil Leach este arhitect, curator si teoretician. A predat la unele dintre cele mai prestigioase scoli de arhitectura din lume precum  SCI-Arc,  Architectural Association,Columbia GSAPPCornell UniversityDessau Institute of ArchitectureIaaCLondon Consortium Royal Danish School of Fine ArtsESARQUniversity of Nottingham,University of Bath si University of Brighton..

Cercetarea sa se dezvolta pe de o parte in jurul a unei teorii critice a arhitecturii, ce trece mai departe de limitele propuse si se inscrie intr-o critica culturala mai generala, fiind dez voltata intr-o serie de monografii si volume ce devin “manuale culturale” pentru teoria arhitecturala contemporana. Acestea includ: Rethinking Architecture: A Reader in Cultural Theory (Routledge, 1997)The Anaesthetics of Architecture (MIT Press, 1999)Millennium Culture (Ellipsis, 1999)Architecture and Revolution: Contemporary Perspectives on Central and Eastern Europe (Routledge, 1999)The Hieroglyphics of Space: Reading and Experiencing the Modern Metropolis (Routledge, 2002)China (Map Office, 2004) and Camouflage (MIT Press, 2006).

Cel de-al doilea subiect abordat de Neil Leach este cel al arhitecturii digitale, unde a publicat numeroase volume si este co-curator al unor expozitii dedicate, incluzand Designing for a Digital World (Wiley, 2002)Digital Tectonics (Wiley, 2004) and Digital Cities (Wiley, 2009), precum si expozitiile Fast Forward>> exhibition at the Architecture Biennial Beijing 2004, Emerging Talents, Emerging Technologies exhibition at the Architecture Biennial Beijing 2006, si (Im)material Processes: New Digital Techniques for Architectureexhibition at the Architecture Biennial Beijing 2008.

In momentul actual Neil Leach este profesor la University of Southern California unde preda alaturi de Kris Mun, Fracois Roche, Manuel DeLanda si Frank Gehry. Activitatea didactica poate fi urmarita pe blogul de cercetare a arhtiecturii parametrice si algoritmice, PARAsite : http://arch-pubs.usc.edu/parasite/.
De asemenea Neil Leach pregateste o expozitie pe tema ‘Swarm Intelligence: Architectures of Multi-Agent Systems’ impreuna cu Roland Snooks (Kokkugia) ce se va deschide la Sanghai pe 14 iulie.

Aces eveniment nu ar fi fost posibil fara: Dana Vais, Dorin Stefan, Augustin Ioan, Adrian Arendt, Mihai Racu, Adrian Pop, Iulia Cucu, Emil Foger, Ionut Anton si UAUIM.

[en] version:

Linked to the events for parametric and algorithmic architecture, Neil Leach will host a lecture in UAUIM’s Sala Frescelor on Tuesday, 18 May 2010, at 1230h.

Neil Leach is an architect, curator and writer. He has been teaching in some of the most prestigious schools of architecture in the world, such as SCI-Arc,  Architectural Association,Columbia GSAPPCornell UniversityDessau Institute of ArchitectureIaaCLondon Consortium Royal Danish School of Fine ArtsESARQUniversity of Nottingham,University of Bath and University of Brighton.

His reseach revolves mainly arround a critical theory of architecture, which goes over its designed limits and goes into a more general cultural critique and is being developed in a series of monografies and volumes that become „cultural readers” for contemporary architecture. These include Rethinking Architecture: A Reader in Cultural Theory (Routledge, 1997)The Anaesthetics of Architecture (MIT Press, 1999)Millennium Culture (Ellipsis, 1999)Architecture and Revolution: Contemporary Perspectives on Central and Eastern Europe (Routledge, 1999)The Hieroglyphics of Space: Reading and Experiencing the Modern Metropolis (Routledge, 2002)China (Map Office, 2004) and Camouflage (MIT Press, 2006).

The second subject on focus for Neil Leach is that of digital design, where he has published a number of volumes and is the co-curator for explicit exhibitions, including including Designing for a Digital World (Wiley, 2002)Digital Tectonics (Wiley, 2004) and Digital Cities (Wiley, 2009), and the exhibitions: Fast Forward>> exhibition at the Architecture Biennial Beijing 2004, the Emerging Talents, Emerging Technologies exhibition at the Architecture Biennial Beijing 2006, and the (Im)material Processes: New Digital Techniques for Architectureexhibition at the Architecture Biennial Beijing 2008.

Currently he is a proffesor at University of Southern California, where he teaches with Kris Mun, Fracois Roche, Manuel DeLanda and Frank Gehry. His activity can be followed on the newly established blog for research in parametric and algorithmic architecture, PARAsite : http://arch-pubs.usc.edu/parasite/.

He is also working on an exhibition on ‘Swarm Intelligence: Architectures of Multi-Agent Systems’ along with Roland Snooks (Kokkugia), which will open in Shanghai on the 14th of July.

CLJ: Parametric Design Workshop

We’re very pleased to announce a new workshop taking place at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism in Cluj during 17-21 May, which is very nicely timed with Neil Leach’s conference there (20 May). It all happens under the umberlla of the +/- Cluj Center of Architecture. Thanks to AStA Cluj for the invitation.

Watch this space for more details regarding participation and the workshop schedule and theme.

Application submissions are now open!

mailto: dt.arch.lab@gmail.com

Applications should consist of a brief motivation letter (no more than 200 words!) and an A4 page (150 dpi jpg or pdf, no more than 3mb) demonstrating the applicant’s skills in any 3d modelling software (rhino is recommended but not required). Also, if you have prior experience in Grasshopper or other software (GC, Digital Project, etc.) please let us know.

Application deadline is 14th of May 23:59.    16th May 12.30.

Fees:

Students – free.

Professionals (graduated architects) – 30 euros or the equivalent in RON. All fees are to be handled by AStA Cluj – payment details will follow shortly.

Prelungire preselectie 1. Training

Datorita numeroaselor cereri pe care le-am primit si al interesului deosebit pe care l-ati acordat acestui eveniment, perioada de preselectie in care puteti trimite aplicatiile se va prelungi pana maine, 19 Aprilie 2010, pana la ora 23:59, ora trimiterii emailului.
Va multumim si va asteptam chiar si daca nu vreti sa participati la intreg workshopul.

Perioada alocata trimiterii aplicatiilor s-a terminat. Am avut o surpiza mai mult decat placuta: interesul acordat de voi este mai mult decat coplesitor (51 de aplicatii)! Va vom anunta in cel mai scurt timp rezultatele procesului de selectie.

Multumim inca o data pentru timpul si interesul acordat!
