IAAC Global Summer School 2018 – Digitize 
2nd of July – 14th of July 2018
Applications are now open!

The Global Summer School (GSS) is a platform defined by ambitious, multi-scalar investigation on the implications of emergent techniques in our planned environments. Each year, international teams located in key cities around the globe explore a common agenda with projects that are deeply embedded in diverse local conditions.

IAAC GSS is a full-time two-week course open to creative and innovative people who are interested in fields such as architectureurban planningdigital fabrication and design, searching for a multidisciplinary experience in an international environment.

The GSS18 will be directed by IAAC and developed in collaboration with multipleNodes participating in the course from and in different parts of the globe including, among others: Barcelona, Paris, New York City, Quito, Monterrey, Moscow, Tehran, Beirut, Shanghai and Australia.

Broadband connectivity, cloud computing, social media, sensors are coming together, changing the way we interact, consume, transport, shaping a new urban landscape blurred by digital and physical stimuli. This process is called “digitization”.

How implementing this tools will affect the way of designing, living and interacting in new habitats, finally shaping a new digital consciousness of our environments?

As part of the GSS18 program, students will define strategies for the applications ofAdvanced Digital Design Strategies as essentials mean for the change. Testing the combination of software and hardware students will explore real-time data capture, energy generation, storage and reuse, material adaptability, real-time management of time-uses and citizen-space interaction.
