Held in conjunction with the exhibition Henri Labrouste: Structure Brought to Lightorganized by Barry Bergdoll, the symposium focuses on how the work of 19th-century architect’s innovative use of materials and light in spaces of contemplation and public assembly are relevant in contemporary culture and architecture.
Among the participants of the symposium are: Stephen Rustow (The Cooper Union), Neil Levine, (FAS, Harvard University), Dominique Perrault, Anthony Vidler, (The Cooper Union), Mario Carpo, (Yale University), Aranda Lash, and Ingeborg Rocker (GSD, Harvard University).
GSD Associate Professor IngeborgM. Rocker will discuss how new materials and industrialized fabrication of the 19th century challenged traditional design strategies. While Henri Labrouste’scast ion structures have been considered precursors of Modern Architecture’s construction principles, it remains still to be seen if today’s computeraided and manufactured architectural componentsarea critique or rather a hyper articulation of modern material and production logics. What role played ornament then and now?

This Annual Meeting culminates the events associated with ACSA 100. The Boston conference will mark the centennial year that educators from diverse institutions have gathered to share ideas with the goal of advancing architectural education. It will be hosted by the first school of architecture in America, MIT, whose department of architecture was founded in 1865. To mark such an occasion, the conference will critically examine the ground covered by the discipline since its inception, as well as speculate on its future trajectory, the central theme of the conference being the profound impact of digital technologies’ computational and communication capacities on architecture.

Ingeborg M. Rocker to deliver a lecture at the symposium “Design Technologies as Agents of Change” at the GSD.
Thursday, February 23
06:30pm – 08:00pm
Piper Auditorium, Gund Hall, 48 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA
As digital design media and digital fabrication technologies emerge as foci of design process, the relationship between architects and engineers is undergoing rapid change in collaborative practices. The development of digital technologies is enabling new processes of design practice and collaboration, allows unprecedented design speculation, and enables human-machine interaction in pursuit of newly hybridized spatial environments. Established hierarchies between tools and problems are increasingly reversed. Among other areas of influence, growing environmental awareness is exploiting new shifts from analytical to generative models of design. These evolutionary forms of technology – design relationships are becoming characteristic in complex projects integrating interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary agents in multi-scalar design problems, where the growing inter-relationship between technology and design is acting as an empowering agent.
Beyond simply exemplifying these emerging phenomena, the event seeks to explore and explicate the implications of these considerations upon knowledge, theory, praxis, research, and education.
