Unlike architecture, landscape architecture must not only address programmatic indeterminacy, but also physical indeterminacy. In this context, non-prescriptive representation becomes especially critical. Chard and Kulper should be applauded for their provocative and occasionally whimsical exploration. Read the book.   Architecture hero: I am inspired by British architect Cedric Price’s work—for its range, transcalar nature, and interest in questions of indeterminacy and adaptation. His time-based approach that spanned from systems to objects is highly relevant for our contemporary challenges. Modern-day architecture hero.

Pyropolitics "Our situation today is that of neither land nor sea; updated for the twenty-first century, the central political elements are the dyad of air and fire."—Michael Marder [1]. The book shows the relationship between obsolescence as a concept and architectural styles like Brutalism or postmodernism and high modernism as well as high-tech architecture, which is another style of architecture that we might be familiar with, as it’s often used to approach architectural appearance in the contemporary moment.   Willis, D., & Woodward, T.

Bound to be widely read and much discussed, The Elm and the Expert, written in Jerry Fodor's usual highly readable, irreverent style, provides a lively discussion of semantic issues about mental representation, with special attention to issues raised by Frege's problem, Twin cases, and the putative indeterminacy of reference.

Luke Jones explores the double life of urban metabolism.   Architecture, the art and technique of designing and building, as distinguished from the skills associated with practice of architecture is employed to fulfill both practical and expressive requirements, and thus it serves both utilitarian and aesthetic ends. Although these two ends may be distinguished, they cannot be separated, and the relative weight given to each can vary.

`Architecture of the Indeterminacy' successfully avoids position although not without first presenting pages and pages of two-dollar words trying to embellish dime-store ideas.

What it lacks in substance is more than made up for in copious name dropping. Everyone from Cage to Foucault to Derrida and Deleuze get a mention by this author Reviews: 2. Indeterminacy and Architectural History: Deterritorializing Cosimo Fanzago.

In this first discussion of the ethical dimension of Gaddis's novels, Gregory Comnes maintains that Gaddis writes "epistemological" novels, narratives whose form provides readers.

Architecture's formal systems start to conquer the landscape during the Renaissance. The italien villa emerged as the castello could shed its fortifications and the control over the hinterland was completed and asserted by way of extending architecture's geometry - the order of the city - all the way to the horizon, thus placing all of nature.

A proposal that algorithms are not simply instructions to be performed but thinking entities that construct digital spatio-temporalities. In Contagious Architecture, Luciana Parisi offers a philosophical inquiry into the status of the algorithm in architectural and interaction design.

Her thesis is that algorithmic computation is not simply an abstract mathematical tool but constitutes a mode. A complete accounting for mature inflorescence architecture in grasses would need to consider a broad array of developmental processes including the regulation of branching (meristem initiation and determinacy), phyllotaxy changes, internode elongation, branch angle, and positional modification of inflorescence structures (e.g.

male/female differentiation of spikelets and florets). and Indeterminacy No architecture without event, no architecture without action, without activities, without functions.

Architecture was seen as the combination of spaces, events, and movements without any hierarchy or precedence among these concepts This unlki eyl combinatoi n of events and spaces was charged with subversive.

The future is no longer seen as open. It’s seen as precarious on the one hand, and technologically over-determined on the other. Indeterminacy, initially derived from Bohr’s quantum indeterminacy and Gödel’s undecidability, was once seen to upset stable structures and ossified power regimes.

That's why it was embraced as a liberating epistemic force by many twentieth-century artists and. Architecture Is All Over investigates architecture's simultaneous diminishment and ubiquity in the early twenty-first century. As a diagnostic and tactical guide, this collection features original texts and design proposals from emerging and established scholars and practitioners in the fields of architecture, art, the history of science, media studies, and philosophy.

This chapter seeks to vindicate the idea of aesthetically appreciating the built environment in light of function. It begins by arguing for the need for such appreciation, and detailing how our conception of Functional Beauty can fulfil this need.

It then addresses the issues of indeterminacy and translation as they arise in the context of architecture. Enter Daniel Stockhammer, an assistant professor at the Institute of Architecture and Planning at the University of Liechtenstein who heads the design studio Upcycling with Cornelia Faisst.

In his new book, Upcycling: Reuse and Repurposing as a Design Principle in Architecture (Triest Verlag, ), Stockhammer makes the following argument.

This chapter addresses the problem of indeterminacy, tracing the problem of the indeterminacy of function to an intuitive and widely held view concerning the functions of artefacts: that they are ultimately a matter of human intentions towards artefacts. It argues that the indeterminacy of function is not merely a consequence of this view, but also a symptom of its failure to provide a cogent.

1 Indeterminacy, t he I Ching and John Cage: A New Design Method for Landscape Architecture b y Barry R. Morse Abstract The creati ve use of indeterminacy (i.e. " chance ") is an often overlooked design opportunity despite the universality of chance in art, nature, science and life.

How can "chance", a seemingly capricious phenomenon be made to work for someone. One controlled use of chance is. Via narratives, frameworks, references, approaches and case-studies this book explores these changes and offers a way to reconceptualize the shifting role and nature of information architecture.

This supposes them not to be absolute, not to be obeyed precisely. It makes an element of indeterminacy, spontaneity, or absolute chance in nature. INDETERMINACY: McLuhan, Mass-media and Anticipating Change will continue the exploration of indeterminacy from lecture 5 into the urban scale, exploring architecture.

Against this background, Leslie Sklair's latest book, The icon project, summarises a decade of research and provides a well-researched and wellpresented argument detailing the relationship between the power of the transnational capitalist class and the shaping of civic culture in globalising cities worldwide.

Plant architecture results from a balance of indeterminate and determinate cell fates. Cells with indeterminate fates are located in meristems, comprising groups of pluripotent cells that produce lateral organs.

Meristematic cells are also found in intercalary stem tissue, which provides cells for internodes, and at leaf margins to contribute to leaf width. Taken from The Architecture of Bathing, a book by Christie Pearson (MIT Press, ) Pearson describes hundreds of public baths, primarily across North America, Europe, and Asia.

She interprets them as cross-cultural spaces of indeterminacy, collectivity, and jouissance, and she relates them to media representations of bathing and to her own.

Architecture competitions allow design to begin from a position of indeterminacy—nothing— not budget, not time, not gravity—is rigidly prescribed.

Yes, there are generally competition parameters, qualifying requirements, deadlines and the like; and it’s a good idea to consider these if. Paying particular attention to Cage's inter- and cross-disciplinary engagements with the visual arts and architecture during this period, the book sheds new light on some of Cage's most controversial and influential innovations, such as the use of noise, chance techniques, indeterminacy, electronic technologies, and computerization, as well as.This book, first published inis collection of critical essays by Herbert Read that had not been previously published in book form.

But the positive dependency remains as a vital source. This understanding of the modern age as an age of fundamental indeterminacy explains why modern traditionalism is .
