We’re Media Sponsor’s for The Architectural Association Visiting School’s Embedded Intelligence Workshops!

Stuck trying to figure out how to maximize solar exposure, allow for natural ventilation and sort out some structural gymnastics, and then fabricate and construct it all? While your deadline is probably less than a million years away, the good news is that nature has taken the time to solve most design problems. Natural systems are embedded with the intelligence to expend energy only where necessary, integrating morphology and material distribution for highly effective performance. Couple this to analysis and evaluation with both material and digital computation and their parallel fabrication processes, and you have all the ingredients for a robust architectural proposal.

Interested in learning more? SC Curator Evan Greenberg is collaborating with an incredible teaching team for Embedded Intelligence, AA Visiting School New York this week – check out our feed below!

Evan Greenberg is an educator, researcher and design consultant investigating biomimicry, advanced fabrication processes, and the behaviour of responsive and distributed systems across a range of scales, from product design to architecture and urban design. He has worked with architects, engineers, artists and fashion designers and has lectured and taught internationally. He is Studio Master in the Emtech Programme at the AA where he graduated with distinction in 2008, and teaches Technical Studies in the 1st, 4th and 5th years in the undergraduate school. In 2012 Evan was appointed a Fellow of the Biomimicry 3.8 Institute.

When not reading about biological, materials or climate science, Evan somehow finds joy in reading about the science of food.
