Digital Methods: Los Angeles River Watershed

WS-005 - Digital Methods: Los Angeles River Watershed

Friday, October 20
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM


The workshop, designed for emerging professionals, will introduce an array of digital tools from generative modeling, watershed mapping, and real-time gaming engines. Participants will be introduced to these tools as they develop representations and generative models of issues within the Los Angeles River watershed and engineered river channel.

Participants will be required to bring their own laptops and have the latest versions of Rhinoceros 3D, Grasshopper, and Unity 3D installed (Windows).

$125 per person by 6/30; $150 by 9/15; $175 after 9/15

Learning Objectives:

Bradley Cantrell

Chair and Professor in Landscape Architecture
University of Virginia School of Architecture

Bradley Cantrell is a landscape architect and scholar whose work focuses on the role of computation and media in environmental and ecological design. Professor Cantrell received his BSLA from the University of Kentucky and his MLA from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. He is currently an Associate Professor of Landscape Architectural Technology and a researcher in the Responsive Environments and Artifacts Lab at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. His work points to a series of methodologies that develop modes of modeling, simulation, and embedded computation that express and engage the complexity of overlapping physical, cultural, and economic systems.
