Serial, Discrete, and More

Architecture as a continuously evolving organic body, growing and adapting under external forces - the prevailing paradigm for computation in the past two decades - is under pressure. This lecture will explore how that paradigm has undermined architecture’s autonomy, and has fundamentally always been in trouble with tectonics. Increased computational capabilities are able to push the modernist understanding of architecture as an assemblage of prefabricated, discrete elements into an unexpected new domain of previously unachievable detail, materiality, structure and aesthetics.
