In Between Scanned Realities
The Visiting School is a vehicle to explore the fictive space of data landscapes and territorial speculations for an architectural construct. Students will collaborate on a series of 3D scans of Carbide Willson's ruin in Gatineau Park. These morphed point clouds will form the digital context for the remainder of the workshop. Together participants will design a series of dis-located; 3D altered and choreographed animations within the spaces of the scans. These architectural constructs will be projected in an on-site immersive cinema. Using animations and projections offers an opportunity to re-enter this digital ‘site’. One that embeds new spatial constructs and morphs our understanding of the original reality to see the cloud as a new definition of form and the digital as a new spatial place.
The workshop is open to current architecture and design students, phd candidates and young professionals.
The AA Visiting School requires a fee of £695 per participant, which includes a £60 Visiting Membership. If you are already a member, the total fee will be reduced automatically by £60 by the online payment system. Fees are non refundable
Fees do not include flights.Students need to bring their own laptops and digital equipment. Please ensure this equipment is covered by your own insurance as the AA takes no responsibility for items lost or stolen at the workshop.

Tobias Klein is the principal of Studio Tobias Klein, a practice operating in the between of architecture, across the fields of art and installation, experimental design, interactivity and urbanism. Trained internationally as an architect, his work maintains a fascination with the construct of space, while questioning its modern interpretation. Through the works at varies scales, the studio achieves a re-positioning of this understanding in the context of embodiment, perception and projection. The works constantly evolve between static and dynamic models, shifting from objects to installations and design, prospecting new visual territories in the field of narrated embodied space.
The work of the practice is linked to the academic research in the Architectural Association School of Architecture, London where Tobias Klein holds the position of Studio Master of Dip 1. He is a visiting critic to various universities including Oxford Brookes, Ecole Spéciale d'Architecture Paris, TU Munich, University College London, Cambridge University and the Royal College of Art and is a visiting lecturer at the University of Innsbruck in the Institute for experimental Architecture.
Johan Voordouw is an Assistant Professor at Carleton University having previously worked both in academia (LSA/DMU) and practice in the UK, notably Foster + Partners until 2010.
He is a post graduate of UCL’s Bartlett School of Architecture completing his Graduate Diploma in 2007 and a subsequent M.Arch in 2009. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Manitoba, Canada (2003). Johan's research interests have a disparate range but common themes include the philosophical dimension of digital practice and its relationship with spatial histories. Other interests include the notion of multiple means of simultaneous representation such as the dimensional interplay between 2-D and 3-D in digital space.
Oliviu Lugojan-Ghenciu is a London-based architect and motion designer. He graduated from the AA in 2011, and was awarded both the Nicholas Pozner Prize and the Glower Bequest Prize. Blurring the border between motion and space with a permanent interest in technology, nature and tomorrow, his work has been exhibited in the UK, US, Japan and Europe.
Oliviu splits his time between running ‘CtrlArchDel Studio’, a visual manifesto for a kinetic tribal-syntheticism, as well, teaching and holding workshops on time-based media, digital storytelling and non-linear animative processes in architecture.
ScanLab Projects specialise in large scale 3D data capture. We scan in full colour creating millimetre perfect 3D dataset of objects, buildings and landscapes for use in Design, Making and Visualisation.
We use a range of state of the art 3D scanning technologies providing a fast, reliable and highly accurate service which is tailored to the needs of our clients. ScanLAB Projects is run by Matthew Shaw and William Trossell. Our backgrounds in architecture and fabrication mean we have unique insight into industries where 3D scanning can have its most substantial impact. As a company we are actively involved in teaching and research at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London. Through our commercial projects and research activities we are constantly exploring and expanding the potentials of this powerful technology. We are currently working with leading architects, engineers, broadcasters and artists on a portfolio of projects worldwide.
