'Archaeology of the Digital' Exhibition

  • 00:00 - 19 July, 2013
'Archaeology of the Digital' Exhibition

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.
