Today we are checking out AB-USE II Workshop being put on during February 11-15 at the University of Patras. The workshop is going to explore the possibilities through the incorporation of scripting in MEL (Maya Embedded Language) that is being integrated in Autodesk Maya design software. Check it out after the jump!
SCHOOL: School of Archtiecture, University of Patras
PROFESSORS: Yannis Zavoleas, Dimitris Zisimopoulos, Vassili Pappas, Vasilis Stroumpakos, Ioanna Symeonidou
COURSE: Workshop – codeabuse.wordpress.com
DURATION: 11-15 February 2013
“Project Summary: The objective of this workshop is to further explore the possibilities opened up by the incorporation of computation, especially of scripting in the conception of architectural space. The workshop uses the scripting platform of MEL (Maya Embedded Language), being integrated in Autodesk Maya design software. Key concepts and techniques of parametric design are being developed, as these are also compared to more conventional ones of digital representation. Among the findings is the observation that architectural education has already embraced the digital medium in the form of a multifaceted challenge, mainly in studio research. The related experiments acknowledge the wide spectrum of approaches taking place somewhere in the borders of architectural education, also in relation to other disciplines. In respect, the presented work may be an addition to the ongoing discourse, further identifying this new field.”
