As a final task, we presented our individual works on the chosen architectural theory. Some of the approaches were analyzed and re-formulated in hipotetical scenarios, like Adolf Loos on Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, Bernard Tschmumi on FourSquare or Daniel Libeskind on The Matrix. At the same time, there was some emphasis on analyzing the role of technology for this architectural theories, as well as the different interest towards technology therein, as we can see in J.

M4: Week 1. Reviewing students’ work

During this first week, based on documents, papers and manifestos, we all presented the architect of our preference to work on.
