buildsmart 2011 workshop final presentation

Nell’ambito del programma degli eventi culturali della II Facoltà di Architettura si trasmette invito alla presentazione finale dei lavori degli studenti del IV workshop internazionale di progettazione RPI – POLITO, che si terrà al Castello del Valentino, venerdì 23 settembre come da invito allegato.
9 gruppi internazionali hanno progettato componenti edilizie intelligenti che rispondono a input ambientali per riconfigurare lo spazio in real time, tramite l’utilizzo di Arduino. I prototipi funzionanti saranno esposti in mostra presso il FabLab Italia nell’ambito della mostra Stazione Futuro alle OGR, Esperienza Italia 150, fino alla chiusura.

I progetti degli studenti sono visibili all’indirizzo:

The final jury of the BUILDSMART2011 International Workshop, an Italian-American academic research initiative between the Politecnico di Torino Faculty of Architecture II and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute School of Architecture will take place on september the 23rd at the Castello del Valentino in the Salone d’Onore staring from 10am and will be finishing around 4pm.
Nine teams will present working prototypes of smart building components that dynamically adapt to generate local environmental conditions. The workshop makes use of recent advances in the open-source Aurduino programable micro controller movement. Teams have developed working prototypes, developed at the Fablab Italia laboratory located within the ‘Stazione Futuro’ exhibition on view at the Officine Grandi Riparazioni in Turin, Italy.
Students will be presenting their proposals, research and prototypes developed over the four week workshop. The groups are developing architectural envelopes based on intelligent interactive components able to index environmental conditions in real time and dynamically adjust and reconfigure to optimize performances, energy consumption and environmental adjustments.
The students have used cutting edge modeling software technologies, manufactured interactive prototypes of their designs, and finally applied their intelligent building systems to a project proposal for a public space at the Officine Grandi Riparazioni.
Nine teams will present their project for 10 minutes each and there will be a public critics session of 20 minutes for every project.
