Christian Hubert & Sylvia Lavin: The double bill (March 24, 1993)

Christian Hubert and Sylvia Lavin each present a lecture dealing with architecture’s relationship with emerging sciences and computer generated forms. Though the two lecture separately, they share a sense of shifting away from past assumptions of form and embracing new possibilities created by science and new virtual environments.

While Hubert gives a more historical view of the relationships between body, desire, technology, and form, Lavin discusses contemporary views of emergence through data study and algorithmic processing. The two hope architecture can take advantage of emergent sciences as a means of formulating new ideas of how society, form and technology coexist.
