Building Dynamics, Exploring Architecture of Change

CHSC Auditorium, Byblos campus

The Department of Architecture & Interior Design is hosting a lecture titled: “Building Dynamics: Exploring Architecture of Change” by Branko Kolarevic.

Branko Kolarevic is a professor at the University of Calgary Faculty of Environmental Design, where he co-founded the Laboratory for Integrative Design (LID) and is a co-director of the multi-disciplinary Computational Media Design (CMD) program.

His lecture will survey essential concepts and significant past and current projects that deal with interactive, responsive environments, i.e. building that can change their configuration, appearance and environmental conditions in response to patterns of occupation and context (and in return can shape those too). The principal argument is that change in architecture is far from being adequately addressed or explored theoretically, experimentally or phenomenologically.
