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

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

The 2-day knowledge-rich conference took place on 26-27 Sept 2020 and had renowned experts for Guest Lectures and Tutorials including Refik Anadol, Anouk Wipprecht, Michail Desyllas (AI Build), iheartblob, Justin Hattendorf (nTopology), Hamid Hassanzadeh (ParametricArchitecture) & Zeynep Topal (ZETZDEZIGN). Arturo Tedeschi (A>T), Michael Pryor (DesignMorphine), and Sushant Verma (rat[LAB]EDUCATION) demonstrated a collaborative workshop to design a Soccer Stadium through multiple techniques of computational overlaps.

Each tutor shall build upon the program based on rational decision-making aided by computational tools, right from seating design, sightline optimization, structural skin design, environmental design integration, panelisation, etc. as a part of an integrated and collaborative process.

Computational Design: NEXT 3.0 takes another step to delve into new-age design technologies by global advocates of technology and is scheduled to take place on 23-24 January 2021 (Saturday & Sunday) as a 2-day conference with workshops, panel discussions, tech demonstrations, and discussions.

When:

23rd & 24th January 2021 (Saturday & Sunday)

Joseph Sarafian

Joseph Sarafian, AIA is co-founder and CEO of Form Found Design, a Los Angeles-based architecture and design studio that operates at the intersection of technology and nature. He believes that innovative design requires both an experimentation and therefore mastery of both material and technology. His work bridges this gap, exploring advancements in robotics, material science, and form-finding. The result is an architecture that is derived rather than contrived.

Along with his partner Ron Culver, they pioneered a new concrete-forming method to realize the world’s first robotically-cast concrete pavilion harnessing fabric molds. This proof of concept was built for Amazon and featured 70 uniquely cast concrete “wishbones” that were assembled within a 1 mm tolerance. FFD is currently designing a humanitarian housing solution using an on-demand mobile factory for light gauge steel frame construction. Joseph is a licensed architect in California and tenure track faculty at Orange Coast College.

Valentina Sumini, PhD, is Space Architect and Research Affiliate at MIT Media Lab in Responsive Environments and Space Exploration Initiative, and Visiting Professor at Politecnico di Milano, where she teaches the course “Architecture for Human Space Exploration” at the School of Architecture, Urban Planning and Construction Engineering. She develops design solutions and architectures to sustain human life in extreme environments on Earth and enable human space exploration in Low Earth Orbit, on the Moon and Mars. Her passion in advancing human performance during deep space exploration missions dates back to 2009 when she designed a hotel on the lunar surface for democratizing the access to space to tourists.

Over the years she developed at MIT and MIT Media Lab more in depths studies that she applied to different scenarios and award winning competitions projects, mainly organized by international space agencies:  a Space Hotel orbiting in Low Earth Orbit around Earth (NASA RASC-AL Competition 2017), a city on Mars and its generative design model (Mars City Design Competition 2017 ), a  greenhouse on Mars  (NASA Big Idea Challenge 2019), an ice extraction system for Mars (NASA RASC-AL Competition 2018), a Moon Village (European Space Agency), a soft robotic exoskeleton for enhancing astronaut movements and performance in microgravity and a pavilion, the Tidmarsh Living Observatory Portal (NASA TRISH), to reconnect astronauts with nature during long duration missions.

Valentina’s work has been featured among others in MIT News, Harvard Design Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, WIRED, Structure Magazine, IAC, IASS, CHI and AIAA proceedings and TEDx Talks. She is Vice Chair of the ASCE Earth and Space Technical Committee (American Society of Civil Engineers), member of Space Generation Advisory Council and reviewer for American Society of Civil Engineers of Practice Periodical on Structural Design and Construction.
