M One: LIVING IN A WORLD OF ABUNDANT POTENTIALS

The first module asks about the use and the possibility of a theory for architecture, with a specific application to and perspective on CAAD. We will be concerned with the relation between architectonics as a methodological, philosophical frame of reference and its application in architectural practice, both from a historical as well as from a structural point of view. We will especially... Read More

Jesper Th酶ger Christensen:聽Plane of Consistency What is Architecture? I started trying to dissect the plane of consistency. Trying to gain an understanding of the concept by describing it铆s parts. Looking at the plane of consistency as the unformed, unorganized, destratified matter and all its flows and intensities. Opposite to strata as the thickening, slowing down of the plane... Read More

M1:18.10.2010/ Prof.Kate Marshall/Narrative Infrastructures: Architecture, Narrative, Fiction

Narrative Infrastructures: Architecture, Media, Fiction In this lecture I will show how infrastructure, or what the American novelist Henry Roth calls 鈥渢he strange world behind the walls,鈥 works not only as a highly visible and privileged topic of fiction, but also as an important way of thinking about narrative form. Reading infrastructures quite literally as narrative objects... Read More

M1:on coding/ lecture by Vera B眉hlmann

This lecture will start with the assumption that the mediation between narratives and numbers happens by coding. It will introduce a basic problem involved in any concrete, real-world application of a numerical model: namely the problem of how to turn a symbolical calculus into a significant one. I will suggest that historically, there had been two common stances in dealing with... Read More

M1:”about the point”/lecture by Ludger Hovestadt

The point is a geometrical abstraction, everyone would probably agree with that. This lecture by Ludger Hovestadt explores how聽 the abstract concept of a point releases different potentials to be realized in different technological paradigms. It gives an introduction to what it can allow for first in a pre-analytical, geometrical paradigm, then in an analytical, mechanical paradigm,... Read More

M1:01.10.2010/Dr.Edward Willat/Gilles Deleuzes Architectonics of Growth

Architectonics has a long history in philosophy.聽 Successive philosophers sought to locate the beginning or foundation of all knowledge.聽 This was used to organise all the disciplines of knowledge in a聽system.聽 This lecture will explore聽the work of Aristotle and Kant where聽the foundational and organisational tasks of architectonics are articulated.聽 We will then introduce聽the... Read More

M1:mediality & architectonics/ lecture by Vera B眉hlmann

Lecture by Vera B眉hlmann, an an introduction to the background issues to Michel Serres’ Text “The Origins of Geometry”. Why is geometry so fundamental to our thinking? What does it mean to our CAAD problematics on finding solutions that cannot be drawn? The origin of geometry itself, so Serres claims, was of a double nature: Using figures, schemas, and diagrams... Read More

Energy in the metalithic Era: lecture by Ludger Hovestadt and Vera B眉hlmann on the [power]book. Do we have enough energy for everyone? Of course not: we have more than enough. More than enough to cover all our current needs, more than enough to cater for expanding populations, growing economies and rising standards of living, across the globe. We have so much energy that, once... Read More
