Physico-Logical Design Workshop

Toni Kotnik and Lorenz Lachauer will lead a design studio at the AA Summer dLab 2009, 3 - 14 August. In the workshop the process of abstraction of physical phenomena will be exemplified by an investigation into patterns of movement of bodies in space and the architectural utilization of these patterns by means of parametric and geometric variation.
