Dr Theodore Spyropoulos, Director of the Architectural Association's Design Research Laboratory and Director at Minimaforms, will present a public lecture entitled Towards the Certainty of Uncertainty.
Architectural discourses today shy away from uncertainty and complexity. The current lines of thought champion representational models of historical appropriation, dogmatic styles, or an all-out rejection of architecture having meaningful social or political agency through design.
By necessity, if the contemporary design is to remain relevant it must shift from the finite representational models of practice toward real-time collaborative ones. The shift conceptually is to move from ‘models of’ towards ‘models for’. Enter design.
The role of the model today must be operative and prototypical in nature. Design must be considered as durational, real-time, and anticipatory exploring human with human, human with machine, and machine with machine communication.
This public lecture is part of the Future Design Research Symposium (Sep 29-30), which explores design innovation and the new possibilities that digital technologies offer for contemporary design practice, the construction industry and education.
