Organization or Design? Harvard's third Symposium on Architecture

Harvard University Graduate School of Design (GSD) will hold the third event of All That is Solid, Symposia on Architecture, entitled Organization or Design? It will take place this Thursday, October 15, at 06:30 pm (UTC/GMT-04:00). The contents of the symposia will be published in a+t magazine within the SOLID Harvard Symposia on Architecture series.

Pierre Bélanger, Chuck Hoberman, Lluis Ortega, Ciro Najle, Andrew Witt and others will participate in the event.

From cybernetics to systems theory to present-day parametricism, organization has haunted the architectural imagination. Today, many debates about design practice center on data. Given the pervasiveness of information in the material, spatial, formal, and programmatic forms of organization that today’s designer must confront—in objects, networks, and genealogies—the obsession with data is hardly surprising. But data has no intrinsic bearing on the architectural process or its products. It is; how data is organized—acquired, quantified, represented, processed, and manipulated—is what differentiates design outcomes.

Design techniques connect theory and practice; organization exposes operative frameworks and figures an inner rift between the scientific and cultural aspects of architectural practice. What is design, if it relies on systematic processes and scientific methods, to those who value subjectivity and creativity? This symposium investigates how theories and systems of organization are conceived and enacted and considers their outcomes and disciplinary implications. Moderated by Lluis Ortega. Supported by the Harvard Center for Green Buildings and Cities.
