Through technical attainment of design and digital production the X|A Workshops give the opportunity to students of Architecture and Art, and Professional Architects, Designers, and Artists to challenge new design territories. Our goal is to explore innovative, potential architectural expressions of the current discourse around form through computational tools (Autodesk MAYA). We will focus on technique elaboration, material intelligence, formal logic efficiencies and precision assemblies as an ultimate condition of design. The workshop will develop and investigate the notion of proficient geometric variations at a level of complexity, so that questions towards geometrical effectiveness, accuracy, and performance can begin to be understood in a contemporary setting. The workshop is a discourse based in the use of multi-layered techniques and production processes that allow for control over intelligent geometries, calibration of parts, and behavioral taxonomies, normalizing an innovative held of predictability.

X|A Istanbul Workshop is hosted by the Istanbul Technical University and Yapi-Endustri Merkezi. Selected Participants will attend the Computation Workshop taking place from 17th-27th of June in ITU [Istanbul Technical University] and the Final Review and Exhibition of workshop results hosted by YEM [Yapı-Endüstri Merkezi] on 28th of June. Daily meetings will take place from 10am to 6pm at Istanbul Technical University.

X|A Athens Workshops are organized under the auspices of the Hellenic Institute of Architecture and the Athens School of Fine Arts. Selected Participants will attend the Computation Workshops, Final Review, and Exhibition at Benaki Museum of Athens from 1st-12th of July 2013 or from 15th -26th of July 2013. Daily meetings will take place from 10am to 6pm at the Benaki museum of Pireos 138.
