Greg Lynn and Mark Goulthorpe discuss HypoSurface, a computer-controlled elastic surface that responds to sounds, movement, and network commands—and suggests a future where buildings can move and react. HypoSurface began in 1998 and is still under development. Lynn and Goulthorpe consider its origins, its many influences, as well as how an international team including designers, mathematicians, and a composer worked together over multiple iterations of the project. As part of a multiyear project that includes three exhibitions on twenty-five seminal projects, the CCA and Greg Lynn are publishing a series of digital publications recording conversations with key architects. The epubs are heavily ...

This publication presents the NSA Muscle project by ONL (Kas Oosterhuis and Ilona Lénárd) that combined commercial pneumatics and virtual control technology in new ways to prototype an interactive architecture. NSA Muscle was designed and constructed for the Non-Standard Architectures exhibition at the Centre Georges Pompidou in 2003–2004. ONL’s focus is on the expression of moving surfaces and volumes rather than the expression of moving structure. There is a desire for greater fluidity of form to achieve dynamic figures, and it is not accidental that ONL looked towards pneumatics, combining an external tensile net of soft robotic tubes manufactured by Festo™ ...

In this publication, Bernard Cache and Greg Lynn discuss the origins of Objectile, a web-based system for generating unique decorative panels and furniture which predicted a future of customizable form on demand. In 2015, Cache’s twenty-year-old dream of industrially produced nonstandard objects seems to have been broadly realized, but there have been important and unforeseen changes along the way. The conversation ranges from Deleuze to the financial crisis, from differences between European and American architecture education to the fate of early CADsoftware companies. As part of a multiyear project that includes three exhibitions on twenty-five seminal projects, the CCA and Greg Lynn ...

This publication presents Office dA, Witte Arts Center, an unbuilt project in Green Bay, Wisconsin, that explores the expressive and structural potential of a continuous composite brick facade. Mónica Ponce de León and Nader Tehrani of Office dA designed the Witte Arts Center in 2000 in response to a real estate brief calling for artists’ studios supported by street-level retail in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The site is exposed on three sides to historic buildings, parking, and a busy pedestrian street, and the project explores the potential of a continuous composite brick facade to sustain and connect different characters while remaining coherent ...
