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.

Peter Testa introduces Brandon Kruysman and Jonathan Proto.  Kruysman and Proto were awarded the first SCI-Arc robot research and teaching fellowship upon their graduation. Kruysman and Proto are also the first two graduates of the new Emerging Systems and Technologies (EST) program at SCI-Arc.

Subclip

Brandon Kruysman and Jonathan Proto discuss their development of a platform which uses animation techniques to drive machines. They built a digital tool set composed of three parts: a software plug-in for Maya which translates character rigs into motion paths for robots, a variety of end arm tooling components, and a communication component. This facilitates an exchange between the physical robots and their algorithmic equivalents.
