MakeLAB is a five-day programme engaging with computer-aided architectural design and fabrication experiments to explore new modes of design conception. Using Hooke Park’s forestry and workshop resources, the workshop offers the unique opportunity to explore innovative structures and methodologies at 1:1 scale. This year the programme will revolve around the theme of ‘reconfigurable structures’. Participants will create a transformable architectural space that can reconfigure the relationship between a local architectural space and the surrounding context. Aiming to explore performative aspects such as the filtering of light, views and circulation, we will create an innovative and dynamic structure at a specific site within the forest.
The workshop will result a single collective project, assisted by specialist tutors from in and around the AA. The programme is open to architectural students, teachers and professionals interested in collaborative discussion and hands-on exploration of experimental design+build processes.
As the number of places for this workshop is limited, it is recommended to apply early. Applications can be submitted through the form at the Visiting School page following the link on the right of this page or by contacting the staff at the AA Visiting School office in London.
