Architecture, Systems Research and Computational Sciences by Kim Williams (eds.)

By Kim Williams (eds.)

The wintry weather 2012 (vol. 14 no. 1) factor of the Nexus community magazine is devoted to the subject matter “Architecture, structures examine and Computational Sciences”. this is often an outgrowth of the consultation via a similar identify which happened in the course of the 8th overseas, interdisciplinary convention “Nexus 2010: Relationships among structure and arithmetic, held in Porto, Portugal, in June 2010. at the present time laptop technological know-how is a vital part of even strictly ancient investigations, resembling these in regards to the development of vaults, the place the pc is used to survey the prevailing development, examine the information and draw the suitable answer. What the papers during this factor make specially glaring is that info know-how has had an impression at a far deeper point in addition: structure itself can now be regarded as a manifestation of data and as a fancy process. the problem is finished with different study papers, convention studies and e-book reviews.

He called for the creation of an economically independent research institute to deal with architecture in an industrial age where collective problems could be collectively investigated. The objective of such an institution was to “act as a clearing house for individual research”; to foment “the research work-analysis of problems, the determination and definition of types and norms” [Lönberg-Holm 1967: 22]. This program would later be proposed by him in the context of post-war CIAM and within the informational systems that he designedd with SSA member Carl Theodore Larson.

Therefore, topology could be used to control the design mechanisms and organization in their unity. Kas Oosterhuis, for example, suggested that, “[t]he tension between the dimensions can be made visible and tangible by stretching them almost physically, like a baby in a bunting bag” [Oosterhuis 2002b: 237]. Similarly, movement, as a design tool, could also be transformed, stretched, folded or scaled, which would 32 Lora Dikovaa – After the Paradigm of Contemporary Physics in Architecture:... result in a change of form and connectivity of the design elements.

Acknowle Ack wledgment All images are by the author. 14, No. 1, 2012 33 Notes 1. [Prigogine and Stengers 1984: 82]. Prigogine discusses the relationship between physics and philosophy; in this case referring to the viewpoint of the French philosopher Denis Diderot. 2. The theory of general relativity, including gravity, is mathematically irreconcilable with the theory of quantum mechanics, including electromagnetism, the strong and weak forces. However, scientists assume that under conditions, similar to the ones they suppose formed in the Big Bang or in black holes, these forces should be unified.
