Roberto Davolio Form And Structure

March 27, 2009 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Roberto Davolio explains the process of transitioning from computer design to reality, utilizing advanced parametric design, scripting and rational geometry for the rationalization of surfaces for the sake of cost estimation and standardization of complex facades. By using software programs such as Digital Project, and Maya, architects are able to negotiate structural systems with engineers. Through implementation of a systematic approach, one can rationalize cladding systems of organic shapes, through parametric modeling, testing of surfaces, and analyzation of geometric relationships. Further examples of intelligent and flexible scripts, which allow for the understanding of structural performance and geometrical mutations with real-time results.

Davolio discusses the casino project Luna Nova, in Macau, SAR (Special Administrative Region), China. Through utilization of advanced parametric design, Davolio transitioned a Rhinoceros conceptual wireframe model into a cladding system, as well as structural system, through the generation of rationalized surfaces. He was able to achieve standardization of panels, which subsequently achieved less customization and maintained budgetary constraints. From the utilization of parametric systems, scripting, grids, and geometry came rational and intelligent surfaces. This permitted negotiation among engineers for optimization of efficiency.


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.

Libeskind looks at the separation of the body and the mind. He cites Galileo Galilei and Ren? Descartes, who separated causality from natural laws. Libeskind believes that while the science and medicine has taught us rational thinking, rational thinking leads us to forget about humans and communities.

Libeskind laments the separation of body and mind, and objects to a rationality of the mind that is used to ignore the needs of bodies. This kind of rationality leads to everything that is immoral, starting with the Crystal Palace and ending up in Auschwitz. He accuses both Walt Disney and Robert Venturi of cultivating anesthetic mindlessness. As an alternative, he cites Carl Jung’s Bollingen Tower, built as a remembrance of his ancestors, and rejecting technology as alienating and deadly.
