Greg Lynn Peter Testa Machine Vision Seeing Eye To Eye-clip_10521

Greg Lynn describes how he had never been interested in architecture that moved until challenged to do so by Frank O. Gehry and Peter Arnell in a collaboration on the Atlantis Sentosa Resort (2008). He describes his first moving project–the London Olympic Dome (2009). Lynn describes in detail the iterative research behind his GF42′ high performance sailboat. He discusses the RV (Room Vehicle) House Prototype (2012), the design for pavilions for Curbside (2015), and the proposal for an automated factory for Detroit for the 2016 Architecture Biennale in Venice. He notes the founding of a new business providing machines for buildings–Piaggio Fast Forward.

Peter Testa discusses in detail his design with Devyn Weiser for an automated PSA Peugeot Citroën EV Factory, noting how factories have recently become a platform for speculation with designers interested in robotics and machine vision. He also discusses studio and seminar work generated by SCI-Arc’s Robot House, including 3-D printed fractalizations of the cathedral and tower at the Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa. He concludes with a video ad for Louis Vuitton’s Series 4 (2016), by Nicolas Ghesquière and Tetsuya Nomura.

Introduction by:

The first of the Duels +Duets series of talks begins with Greg Lynn discussing the development of his interest in architecture that moves, discussing projects such as the Atlantis Sentosa Resort, the London Olympic Dome, the GF42′ high performance sailboat, the RV (Room Vehicle) House Prototype, pavilions for Curbside, the 2016 Architecture Biennale in Venice, and a new business providing machines for buildings–Piaggio Fast Forward. Peter Testa discusses in detail his design with Devyn Weiser for an automated PSA Peugeot Citroën EV Factory, and also discusses studio and seminar work generated by SCI-Arc’s Robot House. Testa and Lynn discuss machine vision, the role of architects in the development and future of intelligent environments and services. They respond to comments from the audience on staying relevant, technological nostalgia, the aesthetics of machine vision, and exasperatingly compartmentalized aesthetic and intellectual sensibilities.

Jeffrey Kipnis Devyn Weiser Peter Testa & Greg Lynn-clip_9881

Subclip

Greg Lynn joins Jeffrey Kipnis for a conversation with Devyn Weiser and Peter Testa about their work. Lynn praises Testa and Weiser’s work for not being focused on optimizing the properties of new materals such as carbon fiber, but using that research to develop a new architectural sensibility. Testa characterizes their work as working with an already established technical language, and engaging in a dialog with architecture. He describes their house proposal as floating free of the ground, structured by pressure rather than gravity.


Wolf D. Prix On Raimund Abraham Visions in Exile Or Before We Were So Rudely Interrupted-clip_8625

Subclip

Wolf Prix discusses the importance of drawing in his own work, and in the work of Raimund Abraham. He describes his discovery of 3D modeling, and demonstrates recent applications in the Pavilion 21 MINI Opera Space (2010) in Munich. He discusses how robotic construction may make realizing complexity economical.


Elizabeth Diller In Conversation With Sylvia Lavin-clip_8049

Subclip

Elizabeth Diller contextualizes Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s in-construction Broad Museum by discussing museum projects that preceded it. DS+R approached their 2003 Whitney Museum retrospective exhibit as an opportunity to subvert the authority of the institution to impose narratives on their work. A system of freestanding walls accomodated the display of their work, while, at the same time, being subjected throughout the course of the exhibit to vandalization by a robot-controlled power drill. Another aspect of the installation imported a wall fragment from the Museum of Modern Art which supported Marcel Duchamp’s 1914 Network of Stoppages–which in turn became an artwork, and part of MOMA’s collection.


Advances In Architectural Geometry At The Centre Pompidou-clip_7849

Subclip

Hernan Diaz Alonso begins the evening by pointing out that architecture always has been undergoing crises caused by new technology. A 30-minute documentary by Herwig Baumgartner and Ryan Martinez about technology today at SCI-Arc, featured at the Advances in Architectural Geometry conference held at the Centre Pompidou, September 27-30, 2012, is screened. Then Baumgartner will discuss the issues with Marcelyn Gow, Florencia Pita, Peter Testa and Andrew Atwood.
