Belas Artes by Nature
Last edition: 6th to 26th May 2017
Venue: Arca Lab, Atlantic Rainforest, Brazil.

Speakers: Andrea Macruz, Denise Xavier, Alessandra Araújo and Marko Brajovic.

Produced by Belas Artes University Center, Architecture by Nature is an intensive experience of study and application of natural strategies in architecture and design projects. An immersion in generative modelling processes exploiting biomimicry as design strategy. Have the chance to be part of the ecosystem in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest and thus understand its flora and fauna and the relationship with the art and culture of local communities, such as the use of natural and pressed fibres. As a result, we will produce bamboo structures, and its study as an ecological alternative to wood and apply all learning, as the study of emerging patterns and functional, artificial and natural interfaces and their relationship to the architecture and design.
