Objet Ltd., the 3D printers manufacturer announced that it will be hosting a 48 hour workshop for Architecture professors and students at this year's ACSA (Association of Collegiate Schools of America) 100th Annual Meeting, which will take place March 1-3, in Boston, MA.
Objet will be presenting its advanced 3D printers in this intensive two- day intensive workshop.
The ACSA workshop will allow attendees to hone their digital and prototyping skills to develop breakthrough designs, from concept to 3D model completion, in just 48 hours. Working at the Objet Headquarters and on the MIT campus with a team of expert consultants, each participant will experiment with a range of digital tools to design a project that negotiates the material relationships between the component (part) and the network (whole). Their 3D models will then be showcased at the Boston Park Plaza and formally presented during a Special Focus Session on Friday, 02 March during the 100th ACSA Annual Meeting, and be part of a traveling exhibition that will circulate North America in 2012.
Also presenting at ACSA will be Neri Oxman, Assistant Professor at MIT, who will be describing her work 'Design by Nature' and how Objet Connex multi-material technology helps to bring her complex design concepts to life.
Objet is working in collaboration with MIT, ACSA and ACADIA (the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture) to provide architectural faculty and students with numerous opportunities to explore and learn about how digital technologies, in particular 3D printing, can expand the bounds of architectural education and practice.

Friday, March 2
2:00-3:30 Synthetic Landscapes Special Focus Session
Special Focus Session to discuss pedagogical implications of the workshop. Panelists include team leaders, workshop attendees and Piet Meijs. Using the Digital Aptitudes workshop hosted by Objet as a critical point of departure, this moderated session will focus on linking the pedagogical to the technological. Short presentations by panelists Kyle Miller, Andy Payne, Gil Akos, Ronnie Parsons, Justin Lavallee, Piet Meijs, and Gregory Luhan will frame the conceptual underpinnings of workshop as part of an embedded, participatory, and replicable art-to-part curriculum developed with Neri Oxman. The presenter's own research into areas including flexible form manufacturing, site malleable construction, building performance, and blended materials research will align the concept-to-completion workshop outcomes as logical extensions of an otherwise technologically-driven and application-based synthetic ecology.
Saturday, March 3
12:00-12:30 Objet Presentation
Lunchtime Objet Presentation by Neri Oxman.
