About this event
In today’s post-digital architectural era, a strong dichotomy exists between the increased agency offered by our design tools and the affordances given by many construction contexts – especially building environments of developing countries or those with limited available onsite means, skill, budget, or time. This lecture postulates that by incorporating computational power and incertitude as productive components in alternative design and materialisation processes, the locally available solution space for built architecture can be dramatically expanded and onsite ability and agency increased.
What gains do our extensive computational abilities bring to architectural design and construction in these contexts? How can the mechanisms driving this extensiveness be creatively and practically employed here? What happens when we radically disrupt the security of architecture’s standard reproductive infrastructure?
Illustrated through his highly unusual and provocative built work, Kristof Crolla proposes and applies an alternative computation-driven design and materialisation methodology that capitalises on digital design and production models’ propensity towards variability. The work demonstrates that identified methods can substantially increase the architects’ agency and local onsite affordance. In doing so, the talk challenges the extent to which computation can further impact architectural practice.

ICSA2022: Upcoming Abstract Submission Deadline
Please allow us to remind you of the Call for Participation for the upcoming ’5th International Conference on Structures & Architecture’ to be held at Aalborg University, Aalborg, Denmark in the period 6-8 July 2022. The Call for Participation is for Research Papers including calls for contributions to special sessions and mini-symposia organized by key researchers and for Critical Practices, which is a new experimental contribution format bridging research in academia and research in practice via physical ‘prototypes’:
Abstract Deadline for Research Papers: 28 February 2021 - Extended to March 15 2021
Abstract Deadline for Critical Practices: 1 May 2021
The Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) Expo 2020 is a Virtual Event from November 2-12 2020.
For information visit the IFAI website
Several LSAA members participate in the IFAI activities including Gale Pacific
