Non Discrete Architectures: Networks, Digital Prosthetics and Augmentation
Thursday, April 2, 2015 at 6:30 PM - Friday, April 3, 2015 at 8:00 PM (EDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
We are at a pivotal moment in our society, as it has become increasingly clear that design is inextricably linked to the multi-dimensional world and culture of technology. As such, our creative stance has had to evolve with technology. Technology’s operatives: Coding, Data, Networks, Robotics and Augmented Space etc., have ushered in a new aesthetic, one that is mute, virtual and experiential. This represents our new condition, the convergence of the physical and the digital.
The Non Discrete Architectures Symposium will catalogue and explore the implications, methods of understanding, research and production of the imminent convergence of the digital and physical and thereby acknowledge its power and intent on shifting and expanding architectural and spatial production.
When & Where
PennDesign is an inventive place of learning where the many fields of architecture, planning, preservation, landscape and the fine arts come together on shared ground. At PennDesign, we are dedicated to design that is creative in nature and transformative in impact. In a collaborative environment that fosters inquiry and experimentation, faculty and students seek to recast the distinction between theory and practice, expand knowledge and invention through research, and contribute works of value and beauty.
