The workshop, organized by Salvo Pappalardo (AION architecture) and Andrea Graziano (Co-de-iT), focuses on the development and management of relationships between information and geometry for condition-specific building envelope systems. Through visual scripting in Grasshopper (generative modeling plug-in for Rhinoceros) participants will learn how to build parametric data structures (from basic lists to complex data trees) and how to set up data-driven geometries in order to develop envelope systems and eventually to extract and organize information relevant to the manufacturing process.

We are pleased to announce that Andrea Di Stefano is co-winner of Amplify’s Urban Resilience Challenge. The winning proposal, developed together with M. Assefa, J. Brazil, E. Cabay, R. Machado, J. Mauser and N. Waissbluth, was selected for its “potential to improve the resilience of urban slum communities”.
The Gulit Project aims at reducing waste and improving profits and comfort for market vendors in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, using clay technology of passively-cooled food-storage systems for construction of market stalls.
The project will be supported by IDEO.org, OpenIDEO, the UK Department for International Developmentand the Global Resilience Partnership. The sponsors will also provide technical assistance to bring the idea to life.
Andrea Di Stefano will present the work of AION at the Ethiopian Institute of Architecture, Building Construction and City Development in Addis Ababa on Friday January 8th, 2016 at 5:30 PM, A-Hall, EiABC.
The Gulit Pavilion, result of Construction Workshop in Urban clay cooling techniques, was inaugurated on January, 8th at 3:00 PM, in the EiABC LIDETA CAMPUS in Addis Ababa.
