Scott will be presenting “A Breathing Building Skin” at the ACADIA 2010 Conference at Cooper Union in New York, taking place October 21st – 24th. The theme of the conference this year is “the changing nature of information and its impact on architectural education, research and practice,” with a focus on the roles of information in the design process, generative and evolutionary modeling, and digital fabrication.

The University of Washington’s College of Built Environments will be offering a certificate in Digital Design and Fabrication this fall. The certificate program is a three quarter exploration of using digital design tools like Rhinoceros, Grasshopper, and Solidworks in combination with lasercutters, CNC routers, plasma cutters, and 3d printers.
