Advanced Topics in Modern Architecture: Indiscreet Histories of the Architect's Universal Discrete Machine

ARC 575/MOD 575

Info tab content
As architecture slips (wittingly or unwittingly) into the embrace of AI, this seminar posits that well before the "arrival" of the modern computer, the ideations of architecture and computation were already long-entangled, if not co-constitutive. By way of a set of recursive histoires longues durées, the sessions consider the constituent duties, devices and desires computation shares with architecture in the mutual meta-project of correction, including: memory storage and retrieval systems; deletion and forgetting; the window, the gun, the pen, the nozzle; Universal Languages and the calculation of truth; the algorithm, chance and prediction.
