From the works or Reiser + Umemoto
Deeply informative interpenetration
of the virtual within the material.
BUILDING BASE PRACTICE
Overlooked a paradox incorporating one on the other
1 RADICAL APPROACH
The architecture is out of the material realm, just as set of protocols.
Out of material constrains
Full of a new freedom
PART OF IT
Articulating media to it, loss of power. Migration of power to the electronic realm.
Recognizes the building
Power affects the ways we look at architecture
“powers that be”
Power to act
Opens possibilities and capacities
MAY BE DISCUSSED
IN TERMS OF:
SIGNIFICATION is a by-product / inevitable + changeable.
The building and it’s internal economy & activity
Change becomes an expression of the material organization.
computation inextricable linked
Deleuze “Mediators” – Philosophy-Art-Science
Reiser “Solid State”
Sanford Kwinter – “Wet Computation”
Media as a material substance
2) Media as a virtual or informing potential
Rather folded together as part of the diagram
These are not separated notions
If we shift out of these “static” models
From grids to lattices
Not representation but quantitative effects
Potential to engage flows in living and non living systems
Not a metaphor but the capacity to produce architectural effects.
