AA Visiting School NY Embedded Intelligence

10 days of exploration, collaboration, and hard work culminated in an impressive final exhibition and party.
Thanks to our esteemed instructors, participants, and sponsors!

Embedded Intelligence examined the possibility for biological models to influence and enhance architectural systems. Workshop participants from 11 countries and 19 cities (and over 86,000 miles traveled!) designed, prototyped, and fabricated an array of architectural installations. Access to advanced manufacturing equipment such as a 3-axis CNC router, large-format laser cutters, and 3D Printers enabled the development of full-scale prototyping.

Big thanks to Machinemade for all of the hard work!

Participants developed an understanding of the inherent properties of various natural materials and explored ways to exploit these in the design of material systems, thereby optimizing performance.

Supported by design seminars and evening lectures, the curriculum instruction was spearheaded by a team of industry thought leaders and expert consultants. Computational tools including GrasshopperKangarooVasari,  and Flow Design were also used.

Forthcoming dates for this visiting school to be announced soon!
