A conversation with Diedrich Diederichsen about non-human labor, time and value. Made in the context of Resonance at Goethe-Institut in New York. (fall 2013)
This publication presents Peter Eisenman’s Biozentrum project, an expansion of Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, from 1987. In the competition brief, the program of the complex included biotechnology, molecular biology and biochemistry research laboratories and support spaces. The design process used biological concepts and procedures to generate the geometrical pattern that establishes the location, dimension and form of the complex. The iterations of DNA molecules in the production of the protein collagen were at the base of the fractal geometry guiding the project design. These pairs of figures, with a gap in between them, were the base forms Eisenman adopted ...
In this publication, Greg Lynn and Wolf Prix discuss Coop Himmelb(l)au’s BMW Welt, a corporate-event and car-delivery centre whose iconic form was realized with sophisticated structural analysis and visualization software. The project is located on the BMW campus in Munich, near the Olympic Park; among other corporate functions, it offers the opportunity for new BMW owners to learn more about their cars before driving them away from within the building itself. The design extends Prix’s interest in a cloud-like architecture without ties to the ground. Anchored in one corner by a twisting “double cone” made of nearly nine hundred unique steel ...

In a playful conversation with the artist Jonas Mekas, John Lennon and Yoko Ono give insights into their artistic practices, such as singing, influencing each other, and collaborating in films such as Legs which shows the naked legs of the New York artistic community. ——— December 1970, Regency Hotel, New York City: After a spontaneous film festival in the Elgin theatre for which Yoko Ono and John Lennon had produced two new films in only two weeks, the organiser Jonas Mekas and the two artists sat together, exhausted and probably also very happy. They talk about how the audience received the films ...
This publication presents Testa & Weiser’s Carbon Tower, a prototype for a forty-storey building made almost entirely of carbon fibre. The project exploits the affinities between two technologies that were rapidly advancing during the early 2000s: scripting and fibre-reinforced composite materials. Among its innovations was an early, highly complex 3D-printed model realized through a collaboration with 3D Systems. The project’s point of departure was a script, Weaver, that “weaves” 3D-modelled structural tubes along vectors that intersect one another at repeating increments, generating different densities and patterns of lines according to variable parameters. Carbon Tower pairs this geometry with the formal and ...
This publication presents the Chemnitz Stadium, a project whose visual effects and structural qualities were shaped by a transition from hand sketches to a digital 3D model. Cologne-based architects Peter Kulka and Ulrich Königs, in collaboration with structural engineer Cecil Balmond of Arup, developed the design through hand sketches that were translated into a digital 3D model. The stadium’s structure consists of four formal elements: the lower stands, the upper stands, a series of columns, and a translucent roof, which the architects described metaphorically as an artificial hill, a floating object, a forest, and a cloud, respectively. These distinct forms layer ...

PublisherDroste Effect2018
James R. Southard has been working with small community groups in the hopes of building collaborative digital photo and video projects. Each series has been catered to the issues and concerns of each region through documenting local habits, patterns, rituals, language, history, and so on. This most recent year, James has started to turn the lens around towards himself. He has started to alter this regional material gathering technique into a biographical survey of his late father’s experiences in the 1970s. The resulting work has been a digital collage of still and moving images along with life action shots, building ...

Art cannot solve the problems of 2017, Alexander Kluge says to Hans Ulrich Obrist in this issue, but it can start solving the problems of 2036. Though it may begin in the affective work of mourning, art moves towards a rational archeology and a realistic anticipation. We could call this “futurist realism,” a vision of the coming decades as a series of problems to be solved, rather than as a source for transcendent salvations or damnations of whatever fashion. Unlike the ecstatic or dispirited futurisms we are accustomed to, futurist realism looks forward with no false regrets. Bad-faith futurism, by ...
This publication presents UNStudio’s Erasmus Bridge, a large-scale infrastructural project in Rotterdam that saw innovative use of digital files as tools for design and sites of communication. The City of Rotterdam commissioned UNStudio, led by Ben van Berkel and Caroline Bos, to design a bridge over the River Maas in 1991. The challenge of the project was to engage the infrastructural constraints and scale with a design commensurate with the project’s civic and public significance. The architects collaborated using digital 3D computer-aided design and manufacturing models transferred between a team of engineers and construction contractors. A constant exchange of 3D files ...
PublisherInduction Burners2017
Induction Burners episode #21, with Korakrit Arunanondchai.  
This publication presents Expanding Sphere and Iris Dome, two projets by Chuck Hoberman, in their context during the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. Chuck Hoberman’s work focuses on the notion of transformable design: objects, structures and spaces that can change size and shape through the respective movements of their parts. The Expanding Sphere and Iris Dome could be considered as prototypes that can be later adapted for multiple uses — from toys to buildings. The development of controlling surfaces defined by geometric transformation, with zero material thickness, has been combined with the rigorous design and engineering of hinged and folding ...

It’s been a rough news week. Between Thursday’s testimonies of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Kavanaugh’s near appointment to the Supreme Court Friday, many of us are exhausted. We would like a win for women. Sometimes the quickest way to achieve that is to do it yourself. As such, this episode of Explain Me celebrates women who have made waves in the world of art and activism, through a series of interviews with four major figures—Mia Pearlman (Make NY True Blue), Jenny Dubnau (ASAP), Nancy Kleaver (PARADE), and Mira Schor (Selected writing). In the first half of ...

Three shows. Three reviews. The Trevor Paglen exhibition at Metro Pictures is creepy as fuck. We take issue with New York Magazine critic Jerry Saltz’s review on the subject. Ellie Ga  at Bureau sensitively touches on the horror of the Syrian refugee crisis. Omer Fast at James Cohen produces some powerful videos about the role of the artist in times of crisis, but they are overshadowed by protestors. They believe his decision to transform the front of the gallery into a waiting room in a Chinese bus station amounts to yellowface. Our thoughts on this and just about everything else.
Greg Lynn and Preston Scott Cohen discuss the Eyebeam Atelier Museum, a project for an art space in New York developed through 3D modelling to define a structure based on tensegrity. The project was developed for a competition in 2001 and was intended as a space for exhibition, education, and design in the domain of digital art. Preston Scott Cohen’s design defines distinct planes, chords, and stacked toroidal volumes in a segmented structural system that nevertheless allows for continuous and non-repeating circulation. Cohen’s use of digital technology for the Eyebeam project originated in his formal interests—specifically in geometry that could not ...

A conversation between Khyam Allami and Sharif Sehnaoui recorded at OneHertz Studios, Beirut, late 2017 Two musicians with very different backgrounds and itineraries in music discuss their visions and some of the ideas behind their distinct practices and methods. The conversation is set within the greater context of advancing contemporary ideas into the space of Arabic music. Here, Arabic music is not thought of as a fixed thing but rather as a historical and cultural background that lends various shades of meaning to each artist’s work. Though there was not quite enough time to fully expand upon the ideas discussed, the conversation ...
In March 2009 the Institute of Network Cultures brought 12 networks to Amsterdam for a week of getting things done. Aim of Winter Camp was to connect the virtual with the real in order to find out how distributed social networks can collaborate more effectively. The more people start working together online, the more urgent it becomes to develop sustainable network models. Do we just go online to gather ‘friends’ or do we get organized and utilize these tools to provoke real change in how we work together? How do networks deal with difference, decision making and economic issues? Together ...

This digital publication presents H2Oexpo, an immersive environment designed by Lars Spuybroek that was capable of invoking water abstractly through volume, sloping ground planes, dynamic lighting, projected patterns and images, sound and other kinesthetic means. The project, located in a recreational area in the southwest of the Netherlands called WaterLand, was commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management as a centre for visitors to learn about and experience the nation’s relationship with water. Spuybroek’s design merges a sinuous topological tubular space with digital images that wrap around floor, wall and ceiling surfaces. As part of a multiyear ...
This publication presents Morphosis’s Hypo Alpe-Adria Center, a project located in Klagenfurt, Austria, that creates a new landform in order to mediate the edge-city condition. In the 1990s, Austrian based Hypo Alpe-Adria Bank group was expanding into a major international corporation and commissioned Morphosis to build its new headquarters based on the office’s winning entry to an invited competition. Not only did the brief call for supporting the functions of the new conglomerate, it also stipulated civic and commercial space for the local community. Situated at the eastern edge of Klagenfurt, the project’s scale and density needed to address its context. ...
