Global Summer School India,

Chandigarh, Chandigarh, India Chandigarh, Chandigarh, India

  • About the event

    roadband connectivity, cloud computing, social media, sensors are coming together, changing the way we interact, consume, transport, shaping a new urban landscape blurred by digital and physical stimuli. This process is called “digitization”.

    The pervasive adoption of a wide variety of digital, real-time, and networked technologies, products, and services enable people, companies, governments, and even machines to stay connected and communicate with one another, gathering, analyzing, and exchanging massive amounts of information on all kinds of activities.The construction sector has been slow to adopt process and technology innovations, unable to apply a digitization among main categories of labor, usage, and assets.The area where its most lacking is providing digital tools to their workforce. Integration of technologies into everyday life reveal that tech has just penetrated the sector.

    How will implementing these tools affect the way of designing, living and interacting in new habitats, finally shaping a new digital consciousness of our environments?

    As part of the GSS18 program, students will define strategies for the applications of Advanced Digital Design Strategies as essentials mean for the change. Testing the combination of software and hardware students will explore real-time data capture, energy generation, storage and reuse, material adaptability, real-time management of time-uses and citizen-space interaction.

    Global Summer School programme will run from the 2nd to the 14th of July 2018: workshops, lectures and prototyping will happen at the same time in different geographic areas worldwide.

    Why should you sponsor?

    The 1st edition of GSS India shall commence in India’s first planned city ‘Chandigarh’ designed by Master Architect Le Corbusier. The need of the hour in planned and well working cities like Chandigarh are development of modular and highly integrated but dynamic building facades to help optimize the city’s power needs for the built environment. Both the architectural expression as well as the behavior of the facade should be controllable with high spatio-temporal resolution through individually addressable modules.The 1st edition of GSS India shall commence in India’s first planned city ‘Chandigarh’ designed by Master Architect Le Corbusier.

    During the workshop, participants will take part exploring the integration of highly intuitive and interactive physically-based techniques within parametric and associative modelling environments and digital fabrication protocols. The GSS CDG will end with the fabrication of a 1:1 scale demonstrator aiming to open a discussion regarding adaptive shape shifting lightweight structures and its role in the sustainable development of our built environment

     

     

    This will attract students across the World as well as India. Sponsors will be able to bring the cost of the workshop to an affordable level so that this opportunity is enjoyed by more young scholars. 

    Branding- Promotions- Using your product - Marketting- Attractions towards your events can happen by sponsoring this event, Moreover , an international presence.
