AAVS // AA School // Osaka
The Architectural Association Visiting School in Osaka aimed at bridging the gap between traditional Japanese construction carpentry methods and new age digital tools for the design and construction of a Pagoda Tower located in the Takenaka Carpentry Museum in the city of Kobe, Japan. The visiting school, which saw the participation of students from all over the world, used advanced digital tools, including Wallacei, to generate design variations of different Pagoda structures that optimise for different fitness objectives; through which structural and environmental plugins such as Ladybug and Karamba were used as part of Wallacei's optimisation process. The workshop lasted 12 days and introduced students to the different features and functions of the Wallacei software. Click on the social links provided to learn more about the Osaka visiting school!
