Material Intensities

The sg2012 challenge, Material Intensities, is intended to dissolve our notion of the built environment as inert constructions enclosing physically sealed spaces. Spaces and boundaries are abundant with vibration, fluctuating intensities, shifting gradients and flows. The materials that define them are in a continual state of becoming: a dance of energy and information.


Material Intensities strives to energise our digital prototypes and infuse them with material behaviour. They have the potential to become rich simulations informed by the material dynamics and energy flows.

Workshop

The SG Workshop is a unique creative cauldron attracting attendees from across the world of academia, professional practice as well as many of the brightest students. The Workshop is open to 100 applicants who come together for four intensive days of design and collaboration.


The annual Workshop is organised around Clusters. Clusters are hubs of expertise comprising of people, knowledge, tools, materials and machines. The Clusters provide a focus for Workshop participants working together, within a common framework.

Talkshop

After four intense days of innovative work, Talkshop offers an opportunity for critical reflection on what has been accomplished in the Workshop. Talkshop will be an opportunity to open debates, pose questions, challenge orthodoxies, and propose new ideas.


Talkshop will feature informal and open discussions between Cluster participants, leading practitioners and emerging talents in digital design, offering inside perspectives on how the landscape of computational design is reshaping built form.

Symposium

The Symposium will examine the year's Challenge. Invited keynote speakers will showcase major projects and research from around the globe that mark out the territory of the year's Challenge. The Symposium is a unique opportunity to hear insights into the challenges ahead for the discipline.


Interwoven throughout the day will be reports and highlights from each Workshop Cluster, giving an opportunity to view work created during the previous four days of intensive collaboration, design and development.
