AA Visiting School 2017
Turenscape Academy hosts the Architectural AssociationVisiting School XIXINAN / NEW RURALISM
AA Visiting School will be hosted at Xixinan,Huangshan in July. As an intensive nine-day studio-based course, we will investigate new computational design
approaches in architecture and urbanism. We will experiment with technologies associated to evolutionary approaches to urbanism and architecture, through a
variety of time-based, dynamic models of complex growth and change. Design proposals will negotiate the paradoxical dynamic forces of urban
development and environmental change.
Taking the new road network generated by optimal slope,we projected a growth pattern within our area constraints shown within a radius of 150 meters
from the edges of existing villages. The growth pattern presented a more localized area,following village clusters rather than a larger village network.
