Peer 2 Peer project development : Food Lab + OKNO + SONY CSL

As an initiating workshop at the Green Fab Lab, it was inspiring to be able to host and a number of collaborating European groups for a symposium of ideas sharing, project development and seminars. OpenGreens, by the artist collective OKNO in Brussels, is the ancestor of the P2P Food Lab project. The OpenGreens wiki and the related Time Inventors Kabinet is full of resources relating to urban food, monitoring systems, and more. It is a major repository for anyone interested in urban

Flone Drone : Technology for Conservation and Community

Drone Tech for Community Participation in Conservation, Agriculture, and Advocacy Community groups and interested individuals learnt how to build and fly their own drones in a recent weekend workshop at the Valldaura Green Labs site in the forested foothills just above Barcelona. Together with Lot Amoros and Alexandre Oliver of  Flone-Drone we learnt to build a drone, soldering all the parts together, and conquered the coordination of piloting our tech. Putting drone technology in the

OPTIMA + : computational design and digital fabrication strategies

NOUMENA & ALGORITM in partnership with SHARABASSY and in collaboration with GREEN FABLAB and IAAC (Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia) organised an international competitive workshop that took place in Cairo, Egypt and Barcelona, Spain. The event was to explore innovative design and prototyping techniques, NURBS Modelling, Optimisation, and Fabrication strategies. Goal of the event was to construct 1:1 scale pavilion through all different digital fabrication processes. The event was divided into two different phases:

The Green Fab Lab Inventory

A set of evolving digital fabrication technologies that combine both additive and subtractive manufacturing processes. Advanced tools facilitating the exploration of both digital and local production for self sufficiency.

Projects
Projects

From Concept to Construction.

Investigating uses for local and biotic materials, researching new modes of production and prototyping digitally connected and embedded technologies that inform the way we interface with our environment.

Mycelium

A 2 day study and production group to explore the possibilities and uses for Mycelium. Accompanied by open studios and engage with practical exercises to enhance the forest and work in the Laboratory to grow insulation packets.

Robotic Ceramics

25 & 26 February 2015

How can advanced manufacturing technologies combine with and learn from traditional crafts? This two day intensive workshop will investigate the design and production of Robotic Ceramics: 3D printing with clay.

Agro Technology

27 & 29 MARCH 2015

A two day intensive workshop to combine traditional and digital techniques for reading the environment. Participants will engage in hands on work in the forests whilst implementing sensing technologies designed and manufactured at the Green Fab Lab.
