AbstractThis studio works on the idea that a substantial understanding of
todays technology (internet of things, big data, machine
intelligence ...) changes the perspective to architectural theory
and will result in different architectural designs and building
constructions.
Objective1) Identification and understanding of the challenges of todays technologies;
2) techniques of working within the plenty of the internet;
3) a methodology to design digital architectures;
4) understanding of the shift from hard building construction to soft building applications, and
5) an understanding of the importance of becoming a literate digital persona in order to be an architect today.

'IF NATURE IS UNJUST,
CHANGE NATURE.'

About
freedom,
nature,
technology,

intellect.

What it is,
a HUMAN?

Gendered by nature

An architectonic
stageplay:

Coco Chanel (1918)
moves into
the Villa Lemoine
of Rem Koolhaas (1998)
to discuss
the XENOFEMINIST MANIFESTO (2018)

METEORA #05 will use artifical intelligence
        to write a text to explicate a precise position in today's world,
        to create a spectrum of images to reflect this world
        and design an architectural artefact which brings things into adequate proportions
