East Asian Calligraphy workshop


V4Design Workshop 2 / Online training and evaluation

Application of V4Design technologies for speculation and the design of small scale indoor and outdoor architectural elements related to East Asian Calligraphy

The workshop is part of the training and evaluation procedure for V4Design Pilot Use Case 2

The workshop will be part of an online evaluation procedure and will be held through an online platform.

The main idea behind the V4Design platform is to reuse visual: content such as movies, documentaries paintings and images from other artwork, textual content from textual documentations in films, critics, catalogues, and repurpose it in a way useful for architects and video game designers. The pilot use cases are addressing issues of architectural design of temporary outdoor elements that are related to the historical character of a place and the way it can influence the actual design process. The participating architects have to conduct a significant amount of investigation on dominating architectural and typological elements, spatial configurations and further contextual characteristics.

The workshop participants will be assigned to make proposals for for speculation and the design of small scale indoor and outdoor architectural elements related to East Asian Calligraphy. These proposals can include furniture and equipment such as benches, partitions and lighting elements. The architecture student/professional user group will use the V4Design tool in order to find related material for research upon the topic. They are also going to need to acquire (3D, 2D and textual) information of the local natural, cultural environment and the topography in order to examine the possibilities and articulate their proposed designs.
