Spatial Fragmentations with Houdini- Studio Mümün Keser

Introduction of the workshop:

Houdini is a powerful software that allows users to create highly intricate models quickly, which has recently led to a growing interest among architects. The Course is aimed at beginners and intermediate users.

The two-day workshop serves as an initiation into Houdini’s intricate yet captivating realm, where participants learn to create complex workflows and fit them into an architectural context. The main goal is to familiarize each participant with the user interface, learn basic and advanced techniques, and understand how to work efficiently within the software.

The scope of the workshop:

The focus of this course is to give students the ability to transform simple shapes into more intricate spatial structures, such as vertical highrise or horizontal buildings. Using procedural techniques, you will explore ways to decompose and enhance basic geometries and add architectural details. We will also highlight the differences between traditional and procedural modeling approaches.

Methodology:

The course offers participants the chance to gain hands-on experience and an understanding of node-based procedural modeling with Houdini. An introduction to a wide range of geometry and surface-based features within the software will be provided. In the end, finalizing and cleaning the created geometries will be shown to prepare to bring them in other software to render. Participants can work individually or in groups on the assignment.

Objectives:

Students will see how different approaches can be inserted into the workflow for specific tasks and how much control they can have over the entire design process, and through different procedural techniques, they will have the opportunity to see ways to create geometries with numerous variations.

In the end, participants will be able to create procedural applications and models that they can use in many different ways and for various tasks.

The most important knowledge students will take with them is that not only the project but also the workflow itself to get to the project needs careful planning/designing.

Mümün Keser

Studio Mümün Keser

Mümün Keser is an architect and speculative computational designer based in Innsbruck, Austria. He received his master’s degree from the University of Innsbruck and is currently under contract as a research assistant and lecturer at the Institute for Experimental Architecture and Building Construction under Prof. Marjan Colletti and Prof. Karolin Schmidbaur. In addition, he works as a freelance designer, educator, and artist. He held workshops for numerous people in various fields for organizations and universities, such as the University of Innsbruck, IAAC Barcelona, and UCL Bartlett London.

His interests lie in data-driven design techniques and experimental investigations. In his works, he places himself on the bridge between real and virtual and tries to intertwine these opposing areas. His most recent works mainly concern bringing media into architectural expression and creating fully immersive and adaptive hyperspaces based on the user.
