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.

PARIS | F(AA)SHIONS | AA Visiting Workshop | 21-31st March 2011
Director: Jorge Ayala | Location: Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Paris

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.

Marc Fornes has been invited by McNeel US to display a piece within the Software pavilion.

That new prototypic structure has been produced at Penn State.

Many thanks to David Celento & Jamie Heilman at PSU for the invitation & support.
