Peter Cook

March 18, 2002 | Video Lecturer:

Michael Rotondi introduces Peter Cook, who discusses his current work in the context of his work with Archigram. Cook touches on the usefulness of silliness, the cyclical nature of life and architecture, and the importance of atmosphere as equal to, or greater than, most other architectural concerns. He illustrates his points by presenting a combination of his own work, including the Kunsthaus Graz (under construction), and projects by others linked to his own interests.

Manuel De Landa Virtual Environments As Intuition Synthesizers

March 24, 1993 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Manuel De Landa advocates nonlinear dynamics over the rational structures and assemblages of thought that constitute most of contemporary thinking. De Landa describes situations and circumstances that demonstrate intuitive prediction through analysis of self-evolving systems. Instead of histories and theories that reduce progress to a stagnant succession of years, De Landa seeks attractors and bifurcations for advancement. Throughout, De Landa stresses the importance of connectivism and non-essentialist population thinking.
