Envisioning Organization: Architecture + Information
The constructed world is replete with information that governs and controls its organization. This two-day symposium looks at such information across the many interrelated practices of architecture and design.
From railroads to highways, parking lots to signage, the design and development of the contemporary environment is managed by strategies of physical and visual organization. No longer relegated to only imagining building form, the practice of architecture has expanded to include the visualization and design of systems, processes, and other information that impact the design and development of the environment.
Envisioning Organization explores these design methodologies and seeks to understand and theorize their implications on practice by looking laterally across disciplines of architecture, graphic design, landscape architecture, and urbanism. Adam Bly, of Seed Media Group, gives the keynote address on Friday at 5:30 PM, and the presentations continue Saturday, beginning at 9 AM, with specific sessions on the themes of Clarification, Augmentation, Simulation, and Revelation.
