Design Techniques II, Harvard's second Symposium on Architecture

Atelier Bow-Wow. 'Made in Tokyo: Guide Book', Kajima Institute Publishing Co. 2001

The Harvard University Graduate School of Design (GSD) will hold the second event of All That is Solid, Symposia on Architecture, entitled Design Techniques II. It will take place this Thursday, February 19, at 06:30 pm (UTC/GMT-04:00). The contents of the symposia will be published in a+t magazine.

Tom Emerson (6a), Kersten Geers (Office), Florian Idenburg (SO – IL), and Momoyo Kaijima (Atelier Bow-Wow) will participate in the event.

In a discipline reformulating the role of the architect, the question of technique has acquired a new priority. Techniques move with unexpected fluidity, circulating between individuals and collectives, calling the influence of each into question. Paradoxical and ambiguous, techniques simultaneously negate and open possibilities. A technique can be a subversive strategy, resisting apparently objective parameters, or an appropriative gaze, reconstituting the world as an object of disciplinary knowledge. This symposium, the second event of the series "All that is solid...", interrogates the collectivity, authorship, effects, and deployment of contemporary design techniques. 

Moderated by Enrique Walker, associate professor of architecture at Columbia University GSAPP, with responses by Mariana Ibañez, associate professor of architecture, and Antoine Picon, G. Ware Travelstead Professor of the History of Architecture and Technology.
