Andrea Rossi and Lila PanahiKazemi have been invited to present their ongoing research on urban simulations and informal settlements at the EnCoding Architecture 2013 conference at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh (USA).
The architect is no longer an organizer of matter and space, but a designer of systems with multi-layered components and complex relationships. [En]Coding Architecture 2013 brings together rising superstars, experienced researchers and designers to present experimental work derived through computational thinking and digital making. [En]Coding Architecture 2013 positions the field of architecture as an alloy of programming, digital tooling, art and science. The conference synthesizes new trajectories for the profession in a cybernetic context of tectonics, cultural philosophy, architectural theory and geopolitics. Undeniably, there is a global desire to re-discuss architecture now. Come and join the discussions for the evolution of architecture….
