Think, analyze, design, optimize, compete and fabricate International workshop and competition, September 2014     Phase one:    Cairo           01 – 05 September 2014 Phase two :   Barcelona   27 – 31  October  2014                NOUMENA & ALGORITM in partnership with IAAC , Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalunya, organize an international competitive workshop that will take place in both Cairo- Egypt and Barcelona – Spain where you’ll explore innovative design and fabrication strategies (Advanced Architecture, Parametric Design, NURBS Modeling , Optimization, and Fabrication). THE COMPETITION will run between the workshop participants. it is divided  into 2 main phases. Travelling to Cairo   Phase 1: starts the 1st of September in Cairo (think, design, compete, and prototype)                 -  participants will get lectures and tutorial on parametric design, modeling                 -   participants will be divided into groups and start an internal competition.                  -  each group will propose their optimized parametric pavilions fabricated in small scale                  -  a selected jury will choose the best two pavilions  as primary winners  Travelling to Barcelona    Phase 2:  starts the 14th of September in Barcelona (Adv. optimize, finalize, fabricate, and win)                 -  all participants will get advanced lectures and tutorial on algorithms and optimizations                  -  participants will get experiences on big scale fabrication                 -  the 2 pavilions will be fabricated in big scale by all participants                   -  final Jury will choose only one pavilion to win the competition.    LIMITED SEATS (only 25 SEAT). every participant must submit his CV, portfolio, and statement of interest to the organizers by email: register@ealgoritm.com   and info@noumenaarch.com.   In case of acceptance we will contact the participant to continue registration.  Submission deadline is 15/8/2014.     Participants’ selections : 18/8/2014 Workshop and competition  fees :   600 Euro WORKSHOP AND COMPETITION SCHEDULE Duration:  The workshop, in total, will run for 80 hours / 10 days excluding breaks. 5 days at Algoritm in Cairo and 5 days at NOUMENA in Barcelona. It will be divided to two main phases include three topics, parametric design , optimization, fabrication. (From 09:00 AM to 06:00 PM) The competition will run parallel with the workshop PHASE 1 SCHEDULE    @ Cairo day_01 – Introduction to NURBS modeling with  Rhino 3d               -  Group divisions and projects’ assignments  day_02 – parametric modeling tutorials with grasshopper 3d              – lecture on algorithms and design inspirations               –  groups will work on the project day_03 – more on  grasshopper 3d modeling              _ parametric design  thinking and algorithmic architecture             –  introduction on fabrications             – Competitions work in progress  day_04  - Introduction on optimization with grasshopper (Galapagos and goat plugin) - preparing projects to fabrication  Day_05 _ finalize projects and group presentations   _ primary jury will choose 2 projects  as primary winners    PHASE 2 SCHEDULE   @ Barcelona  IAAC (Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalunya)  day_06 – introduction to 2nd competition phase               – lectures and tutorials on Envelope pattern optimizations                   for  lighting and environmental aspects              – lectures and tutorial on algorithms and optimizations  day_07 – preparing to fabrication               _ big scale fabrication methods and techniques (tutorial and lecture)            _ participants will get experiences on big scale fabrications day_08 – Digital fabrication.             - Preparing particles fabricated parts, members and joints for physical models. Day_09 – Finalizing  fabrication.               - finalizing groups’ Models and final presentation                - adding final features to the physical models  Day_10 – Discussion, final Jury, and Conclusion, and presenting competition winners
