Parametric Design and Fabrication Workshop @ METU Ankara


6th-9th December 2011

In collaboration with the Faculty of Architecture of the Middle East Technical University- METU in Ankara, Turkey, we organized a Parametric Design Workshop for Master Students and  Nurus, an international design company located in Ankara.

Organisation: Arzu Gonenc Sorguc, Ipek Gursel Dino, Verena Vogler

Tutors: Maite Bravo (IAAC), Tobias Schwinn (ICD), Verena Vogler, Ioulietta Zindrou 

Assistants: Bilge Goktogan, Muge Krusa

Sponsors: ESER Insaat, METU Department of Architecture, NURUS from METU Ankara

This four day intense workshop was initiated by Ipek Gursel, Arzu Gonenc Sorguc (METU Ankara) and myself and dedicated to introduce techniques and concepts of parametric processes as instruments for architectural design and fabrication. Master students of METU developed parametric digital models and fabricated them of sheet metal. The workshop included a general introduction to Parametric Design and Fabrication, Software Tutorials, a series of lectures and a unique production experience at the NURUS Factory in Ankara. A central part of the learning was to experience all steps of the design process – from idea to production.
