MS_ACT LECTURE SERIES S2022
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

LECTURE: February 14 2022 2 p.m. – 3 p.m. est via zoom
Of Houses and Surfaces: Re-tracing, and re-thinking, R.
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.
Today, students in New York Tech’s M.S. in Architecture, Computational Technologies (M.S.ACT) degree program are inventing new ways to look at architecture. It’s all happening through artificial intelligence (AI) and robotic systems and being applied in exciting ways that could impact architecture and, more broadly, environmental systems for the next several decades.

Salma Kattass is a Fulbright grantee in the Masters in Architecture, Computational Technology program here at NYIT. She graduated from the National School of Architecture Rabat, Morocco in 2019. After her undergraduate degree she occupied a position of an architect project manager at an architectural firm in Casablanca where she worked on projects of multiple scales ranging from private residences to office buildings to public parks. Furthermore, Salma participated in many national and international competitions as a student, a young architect and designer where she received several awards.

Farah Jalil began her Master’s degree in Architecture, Computational Technologies, in the School of Architecture and Design, NYIT in Fall 2021. She also a received a Graduate Assistantship position in the program for Fall 2021, through which she has been assisting Professor Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa with communications and technical works. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture, from BRAC University, Bangladesh. She has practiced architecture and urban design for three years in Dhaka, Bangladesh before coming to New York in pursuit of post-graduation studies. Her interest in technology and discovery of methodologies of design practices of the future is what brought her to the program.

The Master of Science in Architecture, Computational Technologies Program - MS ACT at The New York Institute of Technology is inaugurating a series of short informative interviews with the people involved directly with the organization, teaching, development and formation of our new MS ACT Program. In this interview we included Nelson Montas Laracuente, the MS ACT ARCH 761 Computational Design Studio Workshop Guest Consultant, Prof. Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa. The course is currently working on a chair design through the Fall semester. Students learn how to design by visual algorithms via Rhinoceros Grasshopper and also learn how to program and code via Python, activating notions of data science (API) applied to computer science.
