‘Archaeology of the Digital’ Exhibition

YouTube Preview Image

Curated by architect Greg Lynn, the ’Archaeology of the Digital‘ exhibition at the Canadian Centre for Architecture is currently on display until October 13. Conceived as an investigation into the foundations of digital architecture at the end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s, the exhibit features four seminal projects that established bold new directions for architectural research by experimenting with novel digital tools: The Lewis Residence by Frank Gehry (1985–1995), Peter Eisenman’s unrealized Biocentrum (1987), Chuck Hoberman’s Expanding Sphere (1992) and Shoei Yoh’s roof structures for Odawara (1991) and Galaxy Toyama (1992) Gymnasiums. Videos of conversations with the architects can be viewed after the break.

“Like most small businessmen,” Beveridge says, “I too am a small- guy trying to compete with bigger companies, trying to generate leads.”

To that end, Beveridge stresses the importance of Internet marketing. But creating a business website is only the first step.
