Behavior is explored as a model for architecture that embraces an intimate engagement between social and material interaction. Continuing the work developed within our studio over the years the emphasis this year sought to open the discourse of behavior as a scenario driven operational research that engages a shift of an understanding of the world as fixed and finite to one that is dynamic and evolving. The research engages in social scenarios that embrace the possibilities of designing self aware and autonomous systems. The lecture will explore generative and behavior-based design a means to proto-type the future through the work of Minimaforms and the AADRL.
