Architectural Machines – DigitalFutures 2020

Within the DigitalFutures 2020 initiaitive, Alessio Erioli will teach a workshop called Architectural Machines, running from June 27 to July 1 2020.


What is the nature of architectural space instigated by computation and automation-driven processes?

The workshop will investigate assembly/growth processes through iterative algorithmic strategies, starting from elementary spatial building blocks treated as basic units of computation – able to store and compute data due to their topological and spatio-geometric qualities. Growing aggregations of these elementary, generic components, create assemblages/networks whose emergent properties and constraints at intermediate and global scale define novel computational entities and conditions, which in turn fold back with feedback implications on the design of both the component geometry/topology and their rules of engagement.
