26 Aug Seminar #15 Digital Explorations in Architecture
The digital revolution is well under way but the built environment is slow in embracing change.
Cheap labels such as “smart” or “innovative” are applied to buildings and cities but the real needs of tech-savvy users are often ignored. The potential of algorithms and robots to create good architecture is yet to be unleashed in full.
Lorenzo Vianello developed his final thesis at the AA School with Lawrence Friesen and Patrick Schumacher and worked for OMA, Studio Fuksas, UNStudio and Foster+Partners.
He matured expertise in both computational and digital fabrication while collaborating with Foster+Partners, Meinhardt Group, RoboFold and Tool of North America. He is currently Director at T&V Architects and Associated Lecturer at the University of Kent.
Can the disruptive force of new technologies be channelled in an efficient and sustainable way?
Lorenzo will explore these topics with a tour of its latest projects.
