Wandering the Garden of Technology and Passion
Join us for this ARCADE event presented in partnership with the Seattle Art Museum.
Wandering the Garden of Technology and Passion: Design Process and Exploration in the Age of Computing
In the 20 years since the rise of digital design, a number of strategies have emerged to generate architectural forms; the static geometries coming from the drafting board have been under siege, then questioned and finally replaced. This panel discussion aims to assess the ebb and flow of the digital offerings, latest developments and upcoming trends influencing where current architecture and computing, its closest companion today, are going to lead the architecture of tomorrow.
Speakers and panelists will include:
John Marx, founding Design Principal of Form4 Architecture. In 1991 he began designing on a computer. John's monograph, Wandering the Garden of Technology and Passion, is a study of digital design that explores two decades of his work.
Pierluigi Serraino, Design Principal at Architecture3. He is the author of several books and numerous essays on architectural photography, digital design, architectural theory, and California Modernism.
Rob Corser, architect and educator who has worked in the US, Italy and most recently at ARUP's Advanced Geometry Unit in London. He currently leads the Collab|Fab studio at the University of Washington. His recent book, Fabricating Architecture Selected Readings in Digital Design and Manufacturing, was published in 2010.
Scott Crawford, founding member of LMN Architect's R&D group. His work focuses on the integration of technology within design for the purpose of increased productivity and design potential.
Brian Johnson, faculty member in the Department of Architecture at the University of Washington for over 30 years. He has helped to steer the department into the digital age, and now directs the Design Machine Group, the department's digital research group.
Peter Miller will make "Wandering the Garden of Technology and Passion" available for purchase--and book signing!
