Aim of course

 

In architecture discourse the classic modernist questions on the relations of form and function got enriched by postmodern questions on media and technology. The lecture Tame introduces aspects of the development of this discourse(s) focusing on techniques. It aims to allow students to gain insight and develop their own questions for both, projects in design as well as in theory.

Subject of course

Nowadays new developments in longer existing technologies have an astonishing influence on the everyday. Hence, we will look into and at robotics and artificial intelligence. We will familiarize with both, where they came from and why they got influential. The aim is to explore what consequences those may have in Architecture in the widest scope, what techniques they might foster. 

 

In general technologies and techniques are inseparable from Architecture. Moreover, at any time some Architects dared to evolve their ideas according or in resistance to the latest, at the time most complicated technologies, the most advanced media, or tried to develop so fare unknown techniques. One may say those people culturalised or tamedtechnology in making them constitutively for their architectural idea.

The resulting architectural diversity is stretched out in the course of the lecture. By polarizing and at the same time fusing architecture topics such as, 'Encapsulating & Adaption', 'Organism & Network' or 'Psyche & Apparatus', to name a few.

Projects from 20th to the beginning of 21th century will be discussed. They get analyzed towards both, how, at different times those ideas got turned into concepts of architecture, and, how these processes generated the sources of their own poetics and how they reshaped established meanings.
