Description

The Surge Workshop will focus on Parametric & Computational Design using Blender 2.80, last release of the powerful open-source software for 3D Modelling and Animation.

In particular, the add-on Tissue will have a key role in order to explore advanced modelling techniques and their aesthetic qualities.

Tissue is an open-source add-on for Blender developed by Alessandro Zomparelli in order to extend the opportunities of fashion designers, architects and medical engineers thanks to a series of dedicated tools for patterns generation.


Price

Wave 1 – March 21 – April 21 – 250$
Wave 2 – April 22 – May 22 – 350$
Wave 3 – May 23 – July 6 – 400$
Wave 4 – July 7 – August 7 500$



Requirements

Level: No knowledge of the software is necessary, however previous experiences with mesh modelling basics can be helpful.
Software to install: Blender 2.80 (Free download)

Brief

In Biology, tissues are organizations of similar cells that are composed of organs and living organisms. Due to the specific qualities of singles cells, some peculiar functions of the tissue emerge; conditioning its effectiveness and determining its’ contribution to the life of the organism. The same biological principles can be applied to any design: when the designer explores these particular parametric strategies, it is important to work with a tool that provides efficient feedback and allows one to easily introduce a wide range of variations leading to significant qualities for a design evolutionary process.

Tutor

Alessandro Zomparelli is a member of Co-de-iT since 2011 as part of the design team for the Reefs project, a 3D printed reef system computationally designed for adaptation to the marine environment.

His background in Engineering and Architectural fields drove him to explore the opportunities of computational design in combination with 3D printing technologies at different scales, from architecture to human body.

In 2012 he co-founded MHOX, a generative design studio focused on the development of body extensions with particular attention to customized masks, medical devices and fashion products.

Since 2016 he is also Contract Professor at Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna (ABABO) in the course of Digital Modeling Techniques.

design, adaptive master plans, kinetic buildings, flexible interiors, to dynamic set design scenography.

In collaboration with the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC – Barcelona), he took part of the Project for Self-Sufficient City, stimulating a research process aiming to redefine the sustainable/technological phenomenon of inhabitation.
