Event Description

This discussion will feature designers, historians, and experimentalists who probe the resonance or conflict between design and exact science. We will explore the attraction, limits, amplifications, and subversions of exactness and deduction. As designers have turned to physics and mathematics as models for technique or knowledge in computational design, what have they learned? What might be hidden or pathological ancestors and antecedents to our current and future design technology?

Moderated by Andrew Witt, Assistant Professor in Practice of Architecture, with:

Mario Carpo, Inaugural Reyner Banham Professor of Architectural History and Theory, UCL, London, UK

George Legendre, IJP, London, UK, Harvard GSD Associate Professor in Practice of Architecture 

Greg Lynn, Greg Lynn Form, Venice, California 

Cameron Wu, Harvard GSD Assistant Professor of Architecture
