Re-coded: Studio Rocker
Author: Ingeborg Rocker Berlin: Aedes Gallery, 2005
The book Re-Coded: Studio Rocker introduces re-coding as a strategy for architectural production. The importance of code and coding for architectural discourse and production over the course of the last 3 decades is highlighted and exemplified in works by the architects Peter Eisenman, Greg Lynn, and Karl Chu. In response to those works, Studio Rocker developed in nine projects a new code-based design dimension. De-coding and Re-coding are hereby comprehended as processes, which equally inform architectural discourses and productions.
Re-coded: Studio Rocker inquires into how far architecture and media always inform each other respectively. Continuing on in this vein, the free play of symbols becomes the foundation for the material generation of form and space.
Ingeborg M. Rockers introduction provides a theoretical context for the experimental work that follows. Each project is subsequently presented in detail through text and duo color graphics.
