GSD Faculty speaks at [En]Coding Architecture 2013Feb 12, 2013
The architect is no longer an organizer of matter and space, but a designer of systems with multi-layered components and complex relationships. Sanford Kwinter (co-director MDesS and professor of architectural theory and criticism), Panagiotis Michalatos (assistant professor of architectural technology) and Ingeborg Rocker (associate professor of architecture) were at Carnegie Mellon University February 8 and 9 to speak about the the profession's new identity and call to arms at [En]Coding Architecture 2013. The conference brought together researchers and designers to present experimental work derived through computational thinking and digital making.
[En]Coding Architecture 2013 positioned the field of architecture as an alloy of programming, digital tooling, art and science. The conference synthesized new trajectories for the profession in a cybernetic context of tectonics, cultural philosophy, architectural theory and geopolitics. Undeniably, there is a global desire to re-discuss architecture now.
