Live TAC_lectures

TAC course is cancelled.

LIVE TAC is a series of lectures which complements and integrates the advanced course TAC. The lectures will be held concurrently with the development of the course (January-April 2011) and will be dedicated to spreading and deepening the themes of generative architecture.

The intent is to provide a state of the art on international architecture while challenging new perspectives on making and building architecture. The lectures will be held in public at Rogers Hall of Politecnico di Milano, Via Ampere 2.

Don't wait anymore, join us for a great professional experience:


TAC Technically Advanced Construction is a new postgraduate course for graduates and professionals established by the Department of Building Environment Science and Technology (BEST), Politecnico di Milano and Co-de-iT. It will run for three months and will allow participants to achieve high levels of knowledge in the design-to-production process through the use of advanced digital tools for design and machines for the creation of physical models.

The entire course, based at Politecnico di Milano, will take place through studies, workshops and working periods assisted (during the development, manufacture and test trial) by a team of highly skilled professionals and teachers (from studies and international schools like AA London, ARUP, Buro Happold, Zaha Hadid, Gehry Technologies, SPAN Architects ...).
The goal is to design, prototype, and finally test “multi-performative skins” through computational design software. Audits in progress performance of the “skin” will be the main feedback to optimize the final design.
At the end of the course, the best students will have the possibility to undertake a 3-6 months internship experience in some design offices proposed by the course commission and by the tutors.
The course will be completed by a series of public lectures held by the same course tutors and other professionals and teachers of international renown.
The course will start on April 04, 2011 and will end on July 09, 2011 (daily attendance).

Registration are open until March 14, 2011.
