Apomechanes 2010 studio in Athens this summmer

We’ve been featuring some really interesting projects from Greece (check the projects by Aristides Antonas here), and here’s a seminar and workshop that certainly looks great.

Ahylo lab in collaboration with supermanoeuvre and kokkugia are pleased to announce the launch of the apomechanes 2010 studio (seminar and workshop) to be held in Athens this summer, from the 19th of July till the 6th of August.

Apomechanes is an intensive 3-week computational design studio held each summer in Athens, Greece. The studio is devoted to furthering techniques and concepts of algorithmic processes as means for design and fabrication. Apomechanes brings together individuals from diverse backgrounds and fields of study to discuss, exchange and collaborate on projects that investigate modes of algorithmic and machinic processes in architectural design.

You can see images of the projects from Apomechanes 2009 after the break, along with more information of the event.

Along with the apomechanes studio there are four more events that are organized this summer:

1. Karl Chu will lecture on the 1st of June in Athens. Karl Chu is principal of the architectural studio METAXY. Before taking on the professorship at the School of Architecture at the Pratt Institute, he was founder and director of the Institute for Genetic Architecture at the GSAPP, Columbia University, New York. In addition, he is also a Co-director of the Biodigital Architecture Program at ESARQ, Universitat Internacional de Catalunya, Barcelona. He is involved in the research and development of genetic architecture and the ontology of the architecture of possible worlds. He has taught, lectured, published and exhibited internationally.

2. Apomechanes is inviting the participants of the studio as well as a curated group of emerging designers to a weeklong sailing symposium around the Greek islands. This initiative is seeking to formalize, through a series of records of proceedings, an on-going dialog around the future of contemporary methodologies in architectural design and fabrication technologies.

3. An exhibition with all the working full-scale prototypes from the apomechanes will be held in September in Athens. The exhibition will be supported with projects from the instructors and invited architects and designers.

4. A bilingual (Greek and English) publication covering works from apomechanes, supported with articles and projects from the instructors and invited architects and designers will be published in September.
