Come celebrate with us on Friday May, 7th from 7-10pm at the SUPERFRONT Gallery for the release of the Spring 2010 edition of tarp: Architecture Manual: Coding Parameters! Edited by graduate students in Architecture at Pratt Institute, this issue features essays and work by students and established professionals. There will be music, video projections, light refreshments, and free copies of the publication!
This year’s issue focuses on the engagement of digital processes which are currently at the forefront of architectural discourse and practice.
Various computational methodologies, such as parametric systems, generative processes, and scripting, all pose questions on organizational strategies, formal qualities, and branding, just to name a few. The work presented in this issue speculates on the significance of these techniques through a critical, if at times tentative lens of theoretical inquiry and practical application.
