Benjamin Aranda: Instructions for Assembly

Speaking of the architectural and media practice he shares with Chris Lasch, Aranda will explore the use of algorithms and systems theory in contemporary design. Well known for examining dynamics such as “Tooling” and “Flocking,” the team has revisited classic “real-time systems” — such as bird flight – only to determine the non-linear functions that torque them. Shifting from organic to inorganic systems, the partnership has recently begun to investigate crystalline structures in modeling architecture. Aranda’s intervention will be less an historical overview than a plunge into contemporary praxis, exemplified in the large-scale pavilions (Morning Line, Evening Line, and Midnight Line) recently designed in collaboration with Matthew Ritchie. This seminar was held on February 4, 2011, as part of "Systems, Process, Art, and the Social", Festival of Art Science and Technology (FAST), MIT 150 Celebration.
