Formations 2011
The only constant in the relationship between design and technology is change. As designers we are inundated with new methods for the design, analysis, and fabrication of objects, buildings, and cities. In order to negotiate this dynamic relationship, we need ways to critically retool our design process. FORMATIONS, an annual event at the California College of the Arts, provides a platform for students and professionals in the design disciplines to explore, evaluate, and critique new technologies in an intensely productive atmosphere. FORMATIONS is a collaboration of the three research labs at CCA: MEDIAlab, URBANlab, and ECOlab. Each year the focus of the event evolves to reflect emerging research topics in the fields of architecture, landscape, and urban design in relationship to new media.

We are pleased to announce FORMATIONS 2011, a series of workshops for students and professionals taking place on March 5 and 12 in San Francisco. The workshops focus on a variety of different advanced digital design platforms related to environmental analysis, BIM, parametric design, GIS, responsive systems, and urban/landscape design.

For full descriptions, please visit and click on the "FORMATIONS 2011" link.

Eligibility: The workshops are open to all students and professionals in the design fields. Please review the specific experience requirements for each workshop in the full workshop descriptions.

Cost: Each workshop costs $75/$150 for students/professionals.
