“angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night”
Bodies at night are different than people during the day. Summer nights are when NYC sheds its business attire for something more feral. Join us for a 9 day intensive design/build workshop that addresses the spaces that bodies occupy at night in Brooklyn’s hipster paradise.
OPEN CALL: Using digital design tools, participants will study how light and the body transform space at night from a passive object to an active environment. Working with the Lot Radio and local fabricators, students will take a hands on role in creating a project in Brooklyn’s throbbing heart. Participants engage in a collaborative process to study, develop digital models, test concepts and build a full scale installation.
IMMERSIVE ENVIRONMENTS: Light up the night with us from August 12-20. Applicants will work with +Farm and Lot Radio to express their ideas about night, light, bodies, and the city. Participants will design and fabricate an immersive nightscape in our Brooklyn studio that will be installed on Lot Radio’s site in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The work will focus on how digital design allows designers to augment reality through spatial complexity and affective variability. Time and movement will be incorporated into processes of bodily interaction to construct an experiential environment. Studio participants will learn to use parametric modeling tools to design and fabricate a spatial intervention that challenges the static nature of architecture. Digital and traditional fabrication techniques will be combined to create a unique spatial environment for Lot Radio’s distinctive site. Individual and hands on training will be provided. A focus on form finding, prototyping, and problem solving will guide them through the steps of taking a project from abstract idea to built form. Participants will engage in all aspects of the project realization including iterative design sessions, focused discussions, group presentations and technical investigations into full-scale prototypes. The studio will conclude with participants presenting the completed structure to locals of Williamsburg as well as other welcomed New Yorkers.
