New technologies come and go at a rate never seen before. Their capacity for substantially affecting a field and a discipline like architecture, long thought to be excessively slow and even conservative at keeping up with technological advances and innovations pioneered by other industries, has always seemed problematic to say the least. We can all watch with exhilaration the incredible landing of a, now reusable, Space X rocket onto a mobile robotic platform floating in the middle the ocean. It’s a game changer. But there isn’t anything like it in architecture. That’s just not what architecture does. And it’s okay! Architecture has a complicated relationship with innovation. As theorist Robert Somol has put it, Architecture is always trapped somewhere between past and future.
In the final studio of the SCI-Arc Architectural Technologies program, a year-long, three-term postgraduate a gr...
