Informed actualizations: From AI to physical computation
The MS ACT Lecture Series aims at discussing research framed by invited guest speakers. The MS ACT Program focuses on architecture expanding relationships between science, technology and culture through innovation in algorithms, simulations, ai, robotics, robotic fabrication and materials. The spring 2022 lecture series discusses alternative means to understand the dialectics between the ideal digital and the physical digital. Within an architecture of information, ai, robotics and materials are thought as actualization interfaces. This process understands information flows and their actualizations as architecture.
Buckminster Fuller's trajectory - Dymaxion to the Geo Lecture by Michael Wen Sen Su, Pratt Institute

Buckminster Fuller's trajectory from the Dymaxion to the Geo
Michael Wen Sen Su, Adjunct Associate Professor, Pratt Institute School of Architecture
Despite his lack of formal architectural training, R. Buckminster Fuller's contribution to architecture has been profound and unmatched. While his life's work is well studied, due, in no small part, to his lifelong drive to document every aspect and conserve every correspondence of his life, this lecture seeks to re-trace, and thereby to re-think, the trajectory of his work, which was marked at its inception by his idiosyncratic, impossible Dymaxion House, and at its terminus by the fanciful, all too possible Geodesic dome. In particular, this lecture seeks to reconsider Fuller as the innate outsider whose uncanny capacity for thinking outside the box led him to conceive of architecture not merely as the provision of shelter or the control of environment, but as the synthesis and manipulation of information.

Borders and cities index more an economic system than the previous modern ideals of socio economic stability, health and equity. These economic systems are measurable in how the city form follows finance (Willis) rather than environmental, urban and architecture parameters. What are the consequences of Capitalism in architecture and urbanism? How can we denaturalize cities as business and present alternative scenarios? In a globalized economy, people cannot move but goods can. How can we disclose implicit and explicit political boundaries in the current neoliberal model? What are the possibilities for a Post-Capitalist Urbanism in the Post-Anthropocene? How is technology enabling or resisting these processes? How is the current Feudal Capitalism in Computation reinforcing or displacing this logic and physical and political borders?

Recent history shows how public space can positively and negatively affect people from different ethnic and cultural groups. Urban areas as symbolic indicators can have high emotional registers and be simultaneously inviting or rejecting depending on the occupants. Discussions renew the debate of the multidimensionality of urban regimes concerning these asymmetries of urban space, especially in different minority groups.
Making sense of these differences requires a multidimensional approach to envisioning urban design involving an understanding of the histories, the symbolism and effect of the attached emotional registers on different groups, and the presence of new voices in the imagination of public space.
The aggregation of these ideas allows for a deeper insight into how conceptions of public space, urban visibility, and the addressing of public emotional registers in construction, oversight of, ownership of, and intersection with institutional racism.
Departing from a preconception of equal access, the panel discusses collective rituals in streets, parks, and squares of city space and the design and management practices that should reflect various cultural experiences. The talk covers the need for designers and managers to know how places may be interpreted differently by different ethnic minority groups and work towards inclusive design.

NYIT School of Architecture and Design (SoAD) has been invited to participate in the 17th International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale from May 22 to November 21, 2021. The exhibition is curated by Hashim Sarkis, Dean of the School of Architecture and Planning at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and conceived around the relevant question “How will we live together?”.
Our faculty and student works—along with contributions from other researchers, architects and designers—are featured in the Italian Pavilion – Resilient Communities at the Tese delle Vergini in the Arsenale, sponsored and promoted by the Italian Ministry of Culture, General Direction for Contemporary Creativity, and curated by Alessandro Melis, the school’s new IDC Foundation Endowed Chair. The school’s faculty are also exhibiting at the Korean Pavilion – Future School, curated by Hae-Won Shin and commissioned by the Arts Council Korea.
