APPLICATIONS FOR IAAC GLOBAL SUMMER SCHOOL ARE NOW OPEN!

IAAC Global Summer School 2013

IAAC Global Summer School seeks to investigate common agendas in global locales.
IGSS 2013 will take place in 12 sites simultaneously under the common theme of Productive City.

2013 GSS – Agenda:
PRODUCTIVE CITY

The production of energy, food, knowledge, and objects are key elements which establish the basic necessities to create self-sufficient habitats. The 2013 Edition of the IAAC GSS wants to address the challenges and opportunities which exist in our urban environments with regards to the production of these elements.

As with each Global School, a multiscalar, and multi-site approach will be utilized to explore how the agenda unfolds with the particular economic, biological, and social factors of each locale.

-At the urban scale, we will identify potential productive regions in our urban habitats.

-At the building scale we will reconstruct a ‘smart city block,’ capable of producing and mitigating its production to and from the city.

-At the tectonic scale we will explore productive facade systems which are responsive to their location and local necessities.

The 2013 IAAC GSS seeks to generate a series of fabricated prototypes which address the agenda through multiple scales.
