    The architect is no longer an organizer of matter and space, but a designer of systems with multi-layered components and increasingly complex relationships. [En]Coding Architecture 2013 invites rising superstars, experienced researchers and designers to present experimental work derived through computational thinking and digital making. [En]Coding Architecture 2013 positions the field as an alloy of programming, digital tooling, art and science.

    This lecture challenges the negative attitude towards technology and computation in general and digital fabrication in particular—an attitude that is still prevalent in certain architectural circles, and argues instead for a more receptive approach based on the ideas of Gilles Deleuze. The lecture goes on to look at some of the latest developments in digital fabrication, including two NASA sponsored research projects to develop a robot to fabricate structures on the Moon and Mars.

  • Minimal Relaxation
    shanghai CHINA

    The design of this temporary installation reinterprets the traditional Chinese garden to activate the roof terrace of the MoCA Shanghai as an undulating and responsive multi-layered landscape. The upper (canopy) layer simultaneously produces gradient spatial conditions and framed viewing portals which curate views of the surrounding hi-rise towers, while the lower (landscape) layer articulates a series of back-lit sculptural ground forms which subdivide the terrace and provide atmospheric effect through responsive color-changing LED lighting effects. Inspired by the work of Frei Otto, the entire project extends his body of design research into physical and digital form-finding processes for minimal surface structures through dynamic mesh relaxation techniques.
