Students of the Ecole nationale supérieure d’architecture de Versailles are currently participating in a workshop titled ‘Intelligent Fabrication – Digital Bridges’ from February 20th to March 2nd where they are investigating bridge designs using parametric tools such as Karamba and Grasshopper as well as digital fabrication techniques. Full scale bridges will be constructed out of timber at the end of the 2 week workshop.
In the first week, the students split up into groups or 4 to develop bridge designs through physical model studies and digital 3d modelling in Rhino and Grasshopper.
