Location: Tech Talent Center (Badajoz, 73. Barcelona)

The Open Talent session on "Shaping Forces: New Digital Workflows, Tools and Frameworks to Generate Physical Human Space", with Christoph Gengnagel, professor for Design and Structural Engineering at the Universität der Künste Berlin, will take place at the Tech Talent Center (c/Badajoz 73, Barcelona) at 7pm on Monday 29 April.

Spatial Design is a fundamental practice in humans’ shaping of the material world. As a cultural technique, it is a key activity in the design-based disciplines, in the arts, and in engineering. The digital revolution has enabled not only new representations of spatial design (of products, installations, buildings, cities, landscapes), but also new strategies that employ computational support throughout the design process and introduce radically different modalities of interaction. The lecture will discuss the current state of the art in structural and architectural design. First concepts and studies for a new performative oriented holistic approach of spatial design will be presented as well.

This conference will be held IN ENGLISH.
