SMD principals, Alba Armengol and Oriol Carrasco have been both awarded with a scholarship to be part of the first AA Visiting School in Spain, that will take place in Bilbao.
The Course has the support of Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, Bilbao Townhall, TECNALIA, COAVN, Egile and Arkitektura saila. It will be conducted by Maider Llaguno Munitxa and Clara Olóriz Sanjuán
The workshop will explore the question of ‘place’ or ‘topos’ and its radical transformation in the recent years due to the proliferation and availability of environmental parameters. Departing from the notion of ‘computing,’ understood as information processing, strategies of ‘data mining’ and ‘indexing’ will be proposed as sensible readings of the site and the territory.
The workshop aims at bringing together design strategies and the critical utilization of both local and global, material and virtual, visible and invisible information of the place. To build upon new operational platforms of environmental readings, the proposals will work on the diagram and the indexing, as opposed to dissociated parametric strategies.
