But a class of <a href="http://archinect.com/sciarc" target="_blank">SCI-Arc</a> students led by faculty member Darin Johnstone got to design and build a new home&mdash;and an affordable, eco-friendly one, at that.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/142594913/science-nonfiction-bringing-emerging-technologies-into-the-uk-s-architecture-education Science Nonfiction: bringing emerging technologies into the UK's architecture education Robert Urquhart 2015-12-05T04:00:00-05:00 >2015-12-09T01:09:35-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/pg/pgwc7dq94bpopgkn.jpg" width="514" height="340" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Taking stock of emergent technologies at The Bartlett and the Architectural Association in London &ndash; two of the most innovative and genre-pushing architectural education institutions worldwide &ndash; it&rsquo;s difficult to not be in awe of the possibilities. Michael Weinstock, Director of the Emergent Technologies and Design at the AA, describes the current state of just what &ldquo;emerging&rdquo; means: "I think we are at a kind of break point where we are just starting to get free of the imitation of previous ways of doing things. We've already got the efficiency, fewer people, fewer materials &ndash; that's the first goal, that's established. But let's remember that emerging technology is the outcome of an evolutionary process."</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/99663613/cutting-room-we-talk-with-patrick-creadon-director-of-if-you-build-it-about-the-documentary-and-the-power-of-design-education-in-post-recession-u-s Cutting Room: We talk with Patrick Creadon, director of "If You Build It", about the documentary and the power of design education in post-recession U.S. Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-05-14T12:33:00-04:00 >2014-05-21T12:48:46-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/at/ats1dpm17tp9d2xc.jpg" width="514" height="665" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><a href="http://www.ifyoubuilditmovie.com/" target="_blank"><em>If You Build It </em></a>documents a year in the classroom of <a href="http://www.projecthdesign.org/" target="_blank">Project H</a>, an experimental design-build workshop for high school students in Windsor, North Carolina.

This course focuses on the development of hybridized, folded meshes that simultaneously serve as both structure and building envelope. Students develop parametrically controlled tessellations and transform them into building component systems that can be built using conventional sheet stock materials. These tessellated systems are extracted from the digital realm and built at full scale.</p>
