In February 2012 the GEFFA process was started over with a meeting of researchers of all participating universities. In a In a two day programme the participants presented their research and methods of teaching geometry education. On this basis the further steps of the GEFFA process were planned and scheduled – above all the Summer School in Rijeka.
Starting up GEFFA: The Topics of the Kickoff Meeting
- Words of Welcome by Prof. Dr. Neda Bokan (Vice Rector, University of Belgrade), and Prof. Zoran Djukanovic (Vice Dean for International Cooperation, University of Belgrade, Faculty of Architecture)
- Introduction of all participants: Sharing the best educational practices, research results, and educational proposals
- Talk by Daniel Lordick on the context, objectives and preliminary Work of the project (see below)
- Talk by Marko Hemmerling on computational design and construction (see below)
- Planning of the Rijeka Summer School
Getting into the Project: Talks on the Professional Context of GEFFA
To set the basis of the research and project work Marco Hemmerling and Daniel Lordick held presentations about the context and background of the GEFFA project:
Marco Hemmerling held a presentation on the central question of the GEFFA project: The relation between geometry design and architecture. Going deep into this topic was meant to set the basis for the professional understanding of the process in the GEFFA project.
Daniel Lordick, head of the project management of GEFFA and professor for architectural visualization introduced the context of the project between design, geometry and architecture, discussed the objective of GEFFA and referred to preliminary work releated to the new project.
