Breeding Ideologies:
Parametricism and Biological Architecture

Lecture by Christina Cogdell

PARAMETRICISM has been heralded as the new avant-garde in the fields of architecture and design – the next ‘grand style’ in the history of architectural movements. Parametric models enable digital designers to create complex structures and environments as well as new understandings of space, both real and virtual.

Whether as tools for democratic action or tyrannical spectacle; self- and community-building capabilities; a post-humanistic subject; or, the mediatized politics of our various futurisms – all these themes are figured within the Parametricist discourse.

This conference, which includes a range of high profile international speakers from architectural practice and theory, will explore urgent questions that concern the social and political ramifications at stake in the evolution of this new design paradigm.
