Architecture and Complexity 7/7
Date: Friday 6 May 1994
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 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.Panel discussion featuring Peter Eisenman, Charles Jencks, Rem Koolhaas, Sanford Kwinter, Greg Lynn, and Jeff Kipnis (Chair)NB: Slight break in tape after Koolhaas exits.
