THE PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE: An Online Interactive Conference with global frontiers.
Two-Day Online Conference with Live Presentations, Tutorials, Interactive Sessions, Live Mentorship & Panel Discussions.
A collaborative initiative by ParametricArchitecture (PA) with rat[LAB]EDUCATION, DesignMorphine, A>T

What:

Computational Design: NEXT is a collaborative initiative by some of the global frontiers of Computational Design to open up an Online Learning platform as a comprehensive ONLINE CONFERENCE comprising of discussions, dialogues, tutorials and mentorship to a global audience through thought-provoking and meaningful dialogues curated by ParametricArchitecture (PA), one of the leading media platforms focussing on Computational Design and its various subsets.

The first iteration of online conference NEXT 1.0 took place on 13-14 June 2020 and brought forth all collaborators on a single platform in a power-packed 2-day dialogue with live tutorials and mentorship for designers for an immersive learning and knowledge-building experience.

NEXT 2.0 takes the next step, taking cues from the inaugural conference and expands to bring forth collaborative workshops, guest lectures on Advanced Computational Design, showcase of inter-disciplinary approaches by renowned experts and personal interactions through panel discussions revolving around Emerging Technologies in Design.

Guest Speakers:

Refik Anadol

Refik Anadol (b. 1985, Istanbul, Turkey) is a media artist, director, and pioneer in the aesthetics of machine intelligence. His body of work locates creativity at the intersection of humans and machines. In taking the data that flows around us as his primary material and the neural network of a computerized mind as his collaborator, Anadol paints with a thinking brush, offering us radical visualizations of our digitized memories and expanding the possibilities of architecture, narrative, and the body in motion. Anadol’s site-specific parametric data sculptures, live audio/visual performances, and immersive installations take many forms, while encouraging us to rethink our engagement with the physical world, its temporal and spatial dimensions, and the creative potential of machines.

Anouk Wipprecht

Dutch FashionTech designer, Anouk Wipprecht, will be lecturing at the CD NEXT 2.0 about her designs ahead of her time; combining the latest in science and technology to make fashion an experience that transcends mere appearances. She wants her garments to facilitate and augment the interactions we have with ourselves and our surroundings. Her Spider Dress is a perfect example of this aesthetic, where sensors and moveable arms on the dress help to create a more defined boundary of personal space while employing a fierce style. Partnering up with companies such as Intel, AutoDesk, Google, Arduino, Microsoft, Samsung, Adobe, Red Bull, Cirque Du Soleil, Audi, Swarovski, and 3D printing companies – she researches how our future would look as we continue to embed technology into what we wear, and more importantly – how this will change our perspective on how we will interface with technology.  

iheartblob

iheartblob is an award-winning mixed reality design studio and research collective with a strong focus on the Architectural Object and the role of emerging technologies within architecture. The work is meant to both enchant and reflect on the crisis of thought which runs through architecture today by investigating new and established ideas as though they were materials, engaging seriously with hard-hitting agendas, whilst remaining at a distance from full immersion. The studio has exhibited numerous provocative proposals across the globe including at the Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York City and the A+D Museum in Los Angeles; they have constructed a variety of mixed reality works as physical/digital pavilions for the Toronto Winter Stations Festival and Magazin Gallery in Vienna; and their research has been presented at the Architectural Association visiting school in China and in publications such as Archinect’s Ed magazine. They have most recently released their book iheartblob – Augmented Architectural Objects: A New Visual Language.

Michail Desyllas

Michail Desyllas is an Architect and Entrepreneur. He joined Zaha Hadid Architects in 2012 where he has been involved in projects of various scales from aviation projects to cultural centers. He is also the co-founder and COO of Ai Build, a technology company specializing in large-scale additive manufacturing of high-performance products. Ai Build presented groundbreaking projects in Milan Design Week (2017), Venice Biennale (2018) and Goodwood Festival of Speed Future Lab (2019), as well as created the first ever-3D printed store for Bottletop in Regent Street, London. With his role as Chief Designer, Michail has been working closely with Patrik Schumacher on several very prestigious projects, pushing the boundaries of innovation and advanced fabrication techniques.

Justin Hattendorf – nTopology

nTopology’s product designer, Justin Hattendorf, will give a lecture about the company’s breakthrough computational engineering environment which seamlessly combines synthesized geometry and simulation results into finely tuned manufacturing models. nTopology is a software company building the next generation of engineering design tools for advanced manufacturing.

Justin Hattendorf is an architect-turned-product designer with work in AEC, software, fashion, performance footwear, and industrial design. His work aims to merge advanced digital techniques with primitive, tactile processes for the creation of surreal objects and environments. Based in Brooklyn, NY, Justin is a co-founder of JAW Studio, a design studio specializing in computational design for 3D printed fashion hardware and jewelry.

Justin currently leads the Product Design and UI/UX teams at nTopology, an advanced software company based in New York City that focuses on enabling designers and engineers to design, manufacture and ship high-performance products in the least amount of time. nTopology’s breakthrough computational-modeling technology unifies geometry and simulation via the language of fields. nTop transforms three-dimensional data into finely tuned, manufacturable models, supporting collaboration between designers and engineers as they develop high-performing, functional designs.

Guest Tutor:

Zeynep Topal

Zeynep Topal is a developing architect and computational designer based in Istanbul. She gained significance in short amount of time  ever since she have started her initiative called ZETZDEZIGN where she publishes her conceptual works pointing a futuristic architectural aesthetic which she had been developed with computational tools she have practised with different softwares and the workflow between each of them.

As she believes there is no constraints on what can be an inspiration  when it comes to design , she likes to engage herself with other design disciplines  as much as possible such as procedural art, generative design ,visual art or any concept a software serves in order to gain a broader  vision and sight.She has been producing works based on these particular  understanding which she tries to build a connection between present and future aesthetics and experiences with the references she gets from mostly the nature and anything she finds interesting as she likes to describe.She also has been doing collaborations with other designers and tries to  implement her design understanding into fields such as jewerly design and product design .
