MAA Students Interprete Gaudi's Column at Mark Burry's Seminar Bifurcation

Only a few days to go for the Master in Advanced Architecture’s Seminar Bifurcation, led by the Executive Architect and Researcher at the Sagrada Familia Mark Burry, where students will be challenged to design a ten meters column using the same principles of the Gaudí’s column.

The workshop, which has reached this year its 3th edition and counts on the contribution of IAAC Computational Expert Rodrigo Aguirre, will look on one hand at the representation of columns and the creation of an underlying geometrical guide, and on the other at how we branch columns and join them elegantly to the trunk.

Students will be working both in design computation, through parametric design software, and physically, producing branching columns with their hands.

The workshop will include several lectures and seminars, site visit Sagrada Família, hands-on master classes in Grasshopper, and digital and hand-made mould making workshop sessions.
