Interface: Negotiating Convergence in Architectural Technology

Fri, Oct 28, 2016    1pm


John Cerone, Director of Virtual Design & Construction, SHoP
Ben Gilmartin, Partner, Diller Scofidio + Renfro
Thorsten Helbig, Managing Partner, Knippers Helbig
Moderated by Craig Schwitter, Associate Professor, Columbia GSAPP, and Partner, BurroHappold Engineering.

Today’s architecture is continually driving beyond integration to convergence of key technologies. Architectural technology, fabrication and engineering continue to overlap and redefine a truly multidisciplinary space for design. This is most acute at interfaces of envelopes and skins where material, air, water, light, energy all intersect in their respective demands. New expectations on performance, coupled with the evolution of computational methodologies, are driving increasingly sophisticated solutions. Interface: Negotiating Convergence in Architectural Technology will seek to discuss the current state of the art in architectural design of these critical areas of a building’s form.
