PA Sense #9 - Mario Carpo & Gilles Retsin

Mario Carpo and Gilles Retsin discuss architecture and automation in the context of the covid-19 crisis and its aftermath. As global production chains have proven to lack resilience, local, digital manufacturing presents a compelling alternative. What does this mean for architecture? How do we as architects shape an agenda for increased automation in such a way that it benefits all? This talk explores a series of urgent questions that will deeply affect all of us in the near future.

PA Sense #7 - Peter Eisenman - Eisenman Architects

A great privilege was attained to the highly recognized architectural platform on Instagram, ParametricArchitecture; the founder, Hamid Hassanzadeh interviewed one of New York Five; Peter Eisenman, architect, educator, and founder of Eisenman Architects. More info: https://parametric-architecture.com/pa-sense-07-peter-eisenman/ Peter Eisenman has been one of architecture’s foremost theorists of recent decades, but also has an apathy for current trends that architects engage in. He is an internationally acknowledged architect and educator whose award-winning large-scale housing and urban design projects, innovative facilities for educational institutions, and series of inventive private houses attest to a career of excellence in design. Eisenman has built little, despite his symbolic influence to the field. The most ground-breaking works include: House VI, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, the City of Culture of Galicia and the Wexner Center for the Arts.

PA Sense #6 - Bailey Shugart and Erick Carcamo - Allblackform

Hamid Hassanzadeh in conversation with Bailey Shugart and Erick Carcamo. Workshop information: https://parametric-architecture.com/the-illusion-of-form-paacademy/ One week online workshop by PAACADEMY in collaboration with ALLBLACKFORM. The main aspiration of this workshop is to precisely develop a critical argument based on an individual research, which will translate into pure geometrical-formal exploration; the format will be an ongoing deskcrit symposium with the participants, meeting them and discussing their individual architectural project, along with daily tutorials to progress their knowledge of the software techniques. Rather than assignments, the research will be divided into stages and strategies. Based on an image, the participants will develop an expertise in a specific Topological (Geometrical) territory; this territory will emerge for a hybrid between 3 main intellectual fields, from the following menu: Structure, Skin and Mass.
