Join the Graham Foundation for a talk by Sean Keller to launch his new Graham-funded book, “Automatic Architecture: Motivating Form after Modernism”, recently published by University of Chicago Press.
Automatic Architecture examines architects’ enthusiasm for autonomic design methods in the 1960s and 1970s. Influenced by the new science of computing, these architects tried to replace individual intuition with methods that were thought to be objective, logical, or natural. The book closes with an analysis of our contemporary condition, suggesting paths for architectural practice that work through, but also beyond, the merely automatic.
