    Design Tech Meetup – Mimesis: Learning Through Imitation

    Wednesday, July 20, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

    Nothing comes from nothing (as articulated by Parmenides). We are the things we imitate and how we imitate. Learning through understanding, deconstruction and reconstruction is arguably the most efficient way to do so. Is it possible to re-interpret and resolve complex geometry shown in nature via computational and means of parametric design? Moreover, How useful is parametric design in today’s architectural practice? And how can computational design aid architecture in the present and future?



    Learning Objectives

    1. Showcase the capacities of parametric design software in different professions and fields through examples and personal projects.
    2. Participants will learn about tools that this method of work may provide for their own practices or professions.
    3. By way of examples, participants will learn about the context in which this type of strategy may be used.

    About the Presenter

    Bryan García Agudelo, AIA
    Architect, GEA Architects
    Collaborator, PARTISANS

    Bryan García Agudelo is an Architect at GEA Architects and part of the design and construction team in Spain and is also a collaborator at the PARTISANS architecture firm. He has also participated in other collaborations at the national level.

    During his time as a collaborator and architect he has used computational and parametric design skills to aid and formalize specific and unique projects, ranging from geometric solutions for singular structural projects to aesthetic facade designs and 3D printing studies.

    With over 30 thousand followers on his social media platforms – where he publishes and makes his work public – he reinforces the idea of learning through imitation and demonstrates the capabilities of parametric design, not only as an architectural tool but also a graphic design method and instrument.
