EmTech Keynote Lecture: KALOREVIC, Branko
Architecture of Change
Date: Wednesday 18 January 2012
Venue: Lecture Hall
This lecture surveys essential concepts and significant past and current projects that deal with interactive, responsive environments, ie buildings that can change their configuration, appearance, and environmental conditions in response to patterns of occupation and context (and in return can shape those too). The principal argument is that change in architecture is far from being adequately addressed or explored theoretically, experimentally or phenomenologically.
Branko Kolarevic teaches architecture at the University of Calgary, where he also holds the Chair in Integrated Design and co-directs the Laboratory for Integrative Design (LID). He has authored, edited or co-edited several books, including Manufacturing Material Effects (with Kevin Klinger), Performative Architecture (with Ali Malkawi) and Architecture in the Digital Age.
All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
