With McGill University LIPHE Research: François Leblanc, Aaron Sprecher, and Nathalie Wygodzki
The workshop took place at the CCA and at McGill and was presented in conjunction with the exhibition Archaeology of the Digital, an investigation into the foundations of digital architecture at the end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s.
Young people ages 13 to 17 years old are invited to join us for a two-day workshop exploring the latest technologies in digital architecture. Participants will learn to design with a 3-D printer as well as a large-scale robotic arm, using these tools to construct complex three-dimensional objects. The prototypes will be exhibited at the CCA on the last day of the workshop in an event for families, friends and the public. These cutting-edge technologies come from the Laboratory for Integrated Prototyping and Hybrid Environments (LIPHE) at McGill University’s School of Architecture, a leading research laboratory for architectural design and digital fabrication in Canada.
*because of funding cuts, Daycamp in its traditional form was canceled. With donations from McGill University we hosted a 2-day workshop in its place.
