Informed Realism

MS in Architecture, Computational Technologies Program, School of Architecture and Design, New York Institute of Technology

ARCH 701B Studio Prof. Pablo Lorenzo Eiroa

Midterm Review discussion with Distinguished Guest Critics: Sandra Manninger, Nelson Montas, Tom Verebes, Marcella Del Signore and Gustavo Rincon. Students: Salma Kattass, Yousef Ismail, Farah Jalil and Kavya Sista.

Studio Syllabus Brief:

An Informed Realism becomes active once survey is understood as an act of design. Questioning representation parameters in architecture, students address how computation can be understood as proto-architectural. From Big Data gathering, to emergent computation through simulation, to activating artificial intelligence (Data Science, Simulation, Machine Learning), to an augmented virtual reality, students are asked to develop ideas through specific computational thinking, learning and investigating through technology specific cultural problems.
