About this title


The shift from modern to digital systems of design and production opens up a material work to a deeper relationship between author and perceiver. From the classical work to the modern object and from the modern industrial to 'computerised' procedures, the interplay between author and user has become closer, more direct and open. How does this increasing complicity affect architectural practice? How can architecture be conceived as a more fluid informational development? Publishing architectures is much more than displaying a recently finished product in which the architect is the unique author. To make architecture is a real undertaking of numerous authors based on the processing of information before, during and after the materialization of the building. The contemporary relationship between information and authorship in architectural practice, featuring works and texts by Manuel de Landa, Jorge Wagensberg, FOA Architects, Sadar & Vuga, njiric & njiric, Love, Lacaton & Vassal.

About the Author:

Jorge Wagensberg is director of the Science Museum in Barcelona. He holds a PhD in Physics. Manuel de Landa is an independent filmmaker, programmer, and computer artist who has also lectured and written extensively on theories of nonlinear dynamics and artificial intelligence. Foreign Office Architects was founded in 1992 by Farshid Moussavi and Alejandro Zaera, both of them alumni of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA). Croatian-based architecture team njiric + njiric have received increasing international attention in the past several years, participating in several exhibitions in the United Kingdom and France.Slovenian engineer-architects Sadar & Vuga have been working together since 1992, and their work in their home country has consistently subverted convention and gained them worldwide recognition.
