Relational Geometries is the second course in series of technic courses that introduces students to parametric design and rapid prototyping techniques. The seminar develops investigations around the theme of response, taking inspiration from living systems and how they engage temporal phenomena- light, heat, wind, flow, gravity. The students explore geometric relationships that allow them develop architectonic structures that can change their formal organization in response to a temporal phenomena or that instill recognizable effects in the temporal phenomenon. In both cases response is explored through geometric manipulations and understood as morphological change. Students are encouraged to think through the tools and techniques that are introduced.
