Co-creation Workshops will take place on 13/09/2022 (whole day). All participants attending the workshops should contact the workshop organisers for participation, register to the conference and pay the conference fee.
1. Structural design topologies: A topology grammar for generative conceptual structural design
Workshop coordinator: Ioannis Mirtsopoulos, EPFL, Switzerland
This workshop focuses on a grammar for structural design, which has been developed during the doctoral studies of the instructor. As an outcome of his work, a computational framework that integrates the developed theory into a fully functioning Grasshopper plug-in has been implemented, named Libra. The tool allows the incremental generation of numerous diverse reticulated conceptual structures in a semi-automated way within predefined design domains and for predefined loads without any knowledge of structural mechanics. Particularly, it provides an easy and intuitive workflow for structural design, beneficial to understand how the flow of forces affects the design of structures. The integration of static equilibrium conditions ensures designers that the generated design candidates are always in static equilibrium and no further post-processing to impose equilibrium is required. This design workflow aims at provoking creativity. Additionally, it deals with structural design and structural performance, which can optionally be optimized if the designer/user wishes so. Overall, it is a generative, algorithmic & evolutionary design approach that integrates interactive genetic algorithms and aims to unveil unprecedented structural forms. Multiple eCAADe themes tackle with creativity, structural design, and generative/evolutionary design and therefore the eCAADe community perfectly matches the target group of the developed plug-in. In particular, the workshop targets architects with interest in conceptual structural design and grammar rules. During the workshop the theory of the generative grammars that support the workflow will be provided. After, the participants will be guided for the generation of 2D and 3D structurally valid design candidates.

2. Non-Planar Toolpath Generation for 3D Printing with Grasshopper Workshop focuses on 3D printing with non-planar layers using parametric design tools
Workshop coordinator: İnanç Şencan. Istanbul Technical University, Faculty of Architecture
3D printing part can be achieved with standard 3-axis 3D printers, modified 4 or 5 axis 3D printers or robotic arms with a 3D printing setup, depending on the resources of the university. The main objective of this workshop is to teach methods of non-planar 3D printing to the attendees using a framework for custom slicing algorithms in Rhinoceros/Grasshopper. Attendees are expected to find/create a 3D model, define a non-planar slicing method, and create a custom slicing algorithm for that method, following the presented framework using Grasshopper. Resulting G-Code files, along with the files generated with standard slicing programs, are printed using the 3D printing tool provided. Finally, 3D printed models will be compared and the workshop process will be discussed

3. Co-Design in HYVE-3D (in presence): Immersive Retrospection, Representational Ecosystem and Design Conversation
Workshop champions: Dorta, Tomás Professor, University of Montreal
Sopher, Hadas Postdoc fellow, AAU/CRENAU – UMR_CNRS 1563 – School of
The aim of this workshop is to introduce the participants to the Immersive retrospection through the co-design approach using a Social VR system (without headsets): Hyve-3D (Hybrid Virtual Environment 3D) (Dorta, et al. 2016). The system affords simultaneous multi-user co-design (local and remote) using 3D
sketches and imported 3D textured geometries, photogrammetry models and point-clouds. Participants will be trained to use the suitable representational ecosystem and the verbal protocols specific for co-design as a particular kind of collaborative design where each will be simultaneously ideating instead of
cooperating (individual design to be put together in a later stage).
