Rietveld Architects, NY-based Architecture firm Wins New Projects with an Objet 3D Printer
Objet to provide its Objet Connex multi-material 3D printing technology for hands-on architectural education workshop in collaboration with MIT, ACSA, ACADIA
Models created during the workshop will be exhibited at the Objet booth
Rehovot, Israel, February 22, 2012: Objet Ltd., the innovation leader in 3D printing for rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing 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 also be participating in a number of other sessions during the meeting.
The ACSA workshop will allow attendees to develop breakthrough designs, from concept to 3D model completion, in just 48 hours. Their 3D models will then be displayed at the ACSA Annual Meeting – a special exhibit in honor of ACSA’s centennial annual meeting.
Gilad Gans, Executive Vice President for Objet, says: “We are thrilled to have this collaboration with ACSA and MIT as part of Objet’s long-standing commitment to enabling educational excellence. Objet will be presenting its advanced 3D printing and rapid prototyping capabilities for America’s leading architectural professors and students. For the first time, both faculty and student members will be able to get real hands-on experience of our unique multi-material 3D printing capability in an intensive 2 day seminar.”
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’s breakthrough Connex multi-material technology is already being used in leading universities, research institutions and Fortune 500 companies across the United States and Europe.
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.
NOTE – Viewers can watch the ‘Synthetic Landscapes’ workshop on the Objet blog from the 29th of February or via twitter at #ACSA100.
