The organic approach to architecture
- About Author
With its promise of environmental symbiosis, the idea of the organic is re-emerging currently across many fields of science, technology and design. The Organic Approach to Architecture is a multi-disciplinary investigation of emerging forms in the context of ecology, social and physical infrastructures, and electronic technologies. It brings together renowned figures from the fields of architecture, engineering, mathematics, computer graphics, biology and critical theory to share their investigations related to the production and perception of space. Drawn from a symposium organised by the editors Deborah Gans and Zehra Kuz, the chapters and panel discussions address topical issues of genetic technologies, cyber and geometric morphing, environmentalism, landscape and infrastructure. Through the challenge to construct a common language, the contributors weave together a discourse of broad appeal to many audiences simultaneously and cut a section through a moment of culture.
