Architecture and Complexity 5/7

Series:
Date: Friday 6 May 1994
Time: 00:00

Running time: 65 mins

During the late 1960s and early 1970s a call for greater complexity in architecture and urban design arose. Simultaneously, individual researchers in diverse areas of physics, chemistry, biology, economics, mathematics and computer science were formulating new approaches to problems previously considered either intractably complicated or outside the realm of science. Over the following decades these discrete researches eventually coalesced into complexity theory. This conference, chaired by Jeff Kipnis, was convened as a first step towards stimulating dialogue between these two trajectories of complexity, in the belief that the larger social and political goals envisioned by each might be best served by a collaboration between the two.Sanford Kwinter - What Should Complexity Look Like?
