Modeling Workshop

Year: 2013 - 14
Location: University of Rwanda, Kigali
Number of students: 25

Materiality, lights and sections: experimenting architecture

     
Alice Tasca and Zeno RIondato, principals at ASA studio and assistant lecturers at the School of Architecture, UR, Kigali, funded the modeling workshops in 2013 and 2014 to provide the architecture students with the necessary tools and basics to improve their skills. Throughout 10 days the students have been introduced to materials, tools, procedures of the art of modelling. They practiced and investigated techniques and materials throughout morning exercises focused in detail modelling (vegetation, openings, volumes, etc.) and the afternoon production of a 1:50 model of one assigned building. The buildings have been chosen among the most interesting architecture in Rwanda with the aim of sensitize the faculty to the local architecture. Students have been trained to explore and exploit the bene ts of the materials used, and learnt of other materials and techniques to be used in the future.
