About The Event

About the Fractals Workshop :-  

The Fractals Workshop is a generative design workshop that combines logic, geometry, natural systems and structure. This workshop is an adaptation of the teaching methods practised at the Design Research Lab at the AA School of Architecture in London.
 
Fractals is a hands-on workshop, building upon the design research carried out inprevious iterations. Since 2011, the Fractals Workshop has been to Hyderabad, Chennai, Vellore, Roorkee, Surat, Sharjah, Dubai and Bahrain.
 
Participants work in teams to aggregate readily available, recyclable material based on algorithms they develop themselves. The focus is on connections and rules of growth at the single-unit level. The result is a variety of forms from one single unit. Participants understand the concept of evolution in that one small change or rule at the basic unitary level impacts the resultant system. The rules become a manual to be followed to create larger aggregations and can be used in the future to replicate the system again. The workshop encourages teamwork, design thinking, 3D thinking and logic. The weekend-long design research will culminate in a public exhibition of the work.
