3D Build 2023: Building Your Future!

Co-organised by the National School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture of Lille (ENSAPL) and the International Academy (summer university for international students in Hauts-de-France), the research-oriented summer school 3D Build 2023 is a strong 60-hour training programme focusing on the fundamental aspects of in architecture, architectural technology and engineering, in line with top-tier research centres and leading experts in the field.

Midway between Paris, London and Brussels, at the heart of a high-performance academic and economic hub that makes innovation a priority, 3D Build 2023 will provide high-standard English-taught classes, scientific immersion in the field, as well as an introduction to research through a supervised project. A smart opportunity to broaden your international experience under enjoyable conditions with fellow students worldwide.

Course aim

Focusing on the innovative and fundamental aspects of additive manufacturing for construction, 3D Build 2023 will be run as a top scientific workshop offering lectures and seminars, meetings with leading researchers in the field, demonstrations of cutting-edge equipment, as well as an introduction to research through a supervised project. The quality of the work undertaken and your scientific potential will be assessed.

Student projects will be guided throughout the workshop by a constant reflection on the form-material-machine interaction in the continuum “digital design-manufacturing”.

You will be initiated to an integrative computational design approach and robotic additive fabrication for complex geometries of architectural elements and/or spaces. The designed result will be printed out by an automated process with printable materials that you will be taught to formulate.
