AIA California Course #aeck-D127: MDC - Frank Barkow: Spielraum
Presented by: Frank Barkow
AIA/CES (HSW) Learning Units: 1.0 Hours
Course release date: April, 2016.
In this 60-minute course filmed live at the AIA California Council's 2015 Monterey Design Conference, Frank Barkow explores his deep interest in craftsmanship, structure and new technologies, and demonstrates how architectural ideas and materials are intertwined in projects that include easy-to-assemble tents, low-cost housing, advanced factory buildings and eye-catching high-rises.
Barkow illustrates how his firm, Barkow Leibinger, begins each project by first examining a particular material, then choosing the tools and software needed to turn it into a final formed product. With a deep knowledge of today’s cutting edge fabrication techniques, extensive research, and traditional model making, surprising new forms and structures arise.
