Princeton, NJ| Princeton University School of Architecture | Feb 9th | 6pm

Marc Fornes will give a talk on the latest work of THEVERYMANY™ — a small experimental studio focusing on research into the field of design, computation & prototypical structures — and its reality (and exotism into such field) of being a “free electron” not part of (and supported by) any larger academic institution.

Many thanks to Axel Kilian for his kind invitation and Stan Allen for making it possible.

Marc will propose to his group a special type of workshop in a two steps process:

# First to be part of the assembly process for an installation by THEVERYMANY™ for the Centre Pompidou in Paris. The piece will be assembled at the Centre** and will give a chance for the students to experience the process &  logistic involved around the physical production of complex morphologies resulting from the development of highly custom protocols of descriptive geometry (written in Python / Rhcommon).

# Then will initiate the students to text based protocols/scripting (RhinoPython/Rhinoscript) – and investigate a similar design approach then the installation through applied exercises on the human morphology and study multiple ways to describe it…

Looking forward…

** in order to be able to enter the closed floor of the Centre each students will need to be personally insured with “responsabilite civile” and to sign a discharge.
