Rocker – Lange’s work in Masterplanning the Adaptive City

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

Rocker-Lange’s project “Density & Openness Revisited”: Recoding Building Bulk in Hong Kong will be published in the forthcoming book “Masterplanning the Adaptive City”. The book which is edited by Tom Verebes is about computational urbanism in the Twenty-First Century and will be published on 12th August 2013 by Routledge.

Masterplanning the adaptive city, Tom Verebes, Rocker Lange Architects, Christian J. Lange, Ingeborg Rocker

Abstract of the book:
“Computational design has become widely accepted into mainstream architecture, but this is the first book to advocate applying it to create adaptable masterplans for rapid urban growth, urban heterogeneity, through computational urbanism. Practitioners and researchers here discuss ideas from the fields of architecture, urbanism, the natural sciences, computer science, economics, and mathematics to find solutions for managing urban change in Asia and developing countries throughout the world. Divided into four parts (historical and theoretical background, our current situation, methodologies, and prototypical practices), the book includes a series of essays, interviews, built case studies, and original research to accompany chapters written by editor Tom Verebes to give you the most comprehensive overview of this approach.”

Essays by Marina Lathouri, Jorge Fiori, Jonathan Solomon, Patrik Schumacher, Peter Trummer, and David Jason Gerber.

Interviews with Dana Cuff, Xu Wei Guo, Matthew Prior, Tom Barker, Su Yunsheng, and Brett Steele.

Built case studies by Zaha Hadid Architects, James Corner Field Operations, XWG Studio, MAD, OCEAN Consultancy Network, Plasma Studio, Groundlab, Peter Trummer, Serie Architects, dotA, and Rocker-Lange Architects.

Essay of Rocker-Lange in Architecture in Formation

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

“Architecture in Formation is the first digital architecture manual that bridges the gap between theory and practice, giving you a vital resource for navigating the digital future. Sixteen essays from practitioners, historians, and theorists look at the many ways information technology is being used to conceive and assess architecture to present to you a well-rounded discussion of the field. Twenty-nine projects illustrate real-world examples of the digital made concrete, so that you can see how you might do it too.”

Architecture-in-formation

Edited by Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa, Aaron Sprecher

Rocker-Lange Architects featured in Wall Street Journal Video “Architects Tackle Density in Hong Kong”

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Rocker Lange Architects have been recently featured in a video by the Wall Street Journal called “Architects Tackle Density in Hong Kong”

The creativity of architects and designers from around the world, applied to imagining a brighter, more efficient city, is on display at the Hong Kong architecture biennale. WSJ’s Diana Jou talks to chief curator Anderson Lee to get the scoop on some of the most fascinating projects.

Log 21 – “Apropos Parametricism: If, In What Style Should We Build?”

Friday, March 11th, 2011

Addressing parametric architecture and its formalizations in “Apropos Parametricism: If, In What Style Should We Build?” Ingeborg M. Rocker of Rocker-Lange Architects questions, if parametricism is indeed “a system of games,” defined by strategic operations without “aims, gains, histories, or reasons”. The Winter 2011 issue of Log features a tug-of-war of ideas and compelling reflections on where architecture might go, running across time from preservation to parametricism, with insightful entries from around the globe.
