Mario Carpo: The style of big data

Lecture4 June 2015, 19:00Aula, Städelschule, Dürerstraße 10, 60596 Frankfurt am Main

Lecture Architecture Class

Mario Carpo is an architectural historian and theorist. He is currently Reyner Banham Professor of Architectural Theory and History at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London.

Carpo's lecture addresses the "big data", not a mere quantitative phenomenon. Carpo argues that it is a major shift in the history of science, technology and in post-modern culture at large. Our approach to digital computation is no longer that of the 90s, and today digitally intelligent architecture no longer looks the way it did twenty years ago.  

Carpo's research and publications focus on the relationship among architectural theory, cultural history, and the history of media and information technology.  His Architecture in the Age of Printing (2001) has been translated into several languages. His most recent books are The Alphabet and the Algorithm, a history of digital design theory (2011); and The Digital Turn in Architecture, 1992-2012, an AD Reader. Mr. Carpo's recent essays and articles have been published in Log, The Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, Grey Room, L'Architecture d'aujourd'hui, Arquitectura Viva, AD/Architectural Design, Perspecta, Harvard Design Magazine, Cornell Journal of Architecture, Abitare, Lotus International, Domus, Artforum, and Arch+.
