    Technically, chemistry is the study of matter, but I prefer to see it as the study of change. — Walter White (Bryan Cranston) in Breaking Bad

    While ever more sophisticated digital techniques have become the norm in many advanced design-research studios, the application of the digital in urban design is still somewhat untested ground. “Parametric” concepts, of course, have been postulated in large correlative networks, where all things matter to all other things and where behavioral input is both traceable from and dependent on this abstract and invisible scaffold.

  • TARP 2012: Not Nature
    new york NEW YORK

    Just one week left to lend your support to Tarp‘s upcoming issue, “Not Nature.”

    “Not Nature” is interested in exploring historical and contemporary architectural positions in regard to natural systems—aesthetic, synthetic, philosophical, autonomous, not autonomous, investigative, social and political. The question is to explore whether architecture can build form without a clear process-based model to replicate. . . . The issue includes major contributors from philosophy and the history of science such as Graham Harman, Timothy Morton, and Peter Galison, writing alongside architectural theorists and practitioners such as Antoine Picon, Catherine Ingraham, Ed Eigen, David Gissen, David Ruy, and many others. Tarp is an annual publication of the Pratt Institute Graduate Arch. & Urban Design program.
