title On the Integrative Program
source ACADIA 11: Integration through Computation [Proceedings of the 31st Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA)] [ISBN 978-1-6136-4595-6] Banff (Alberta) 13-16 October, 2011, pp. 22-25
summary The ACADIA 2011 conference, “integration through computation,” constitutes the latest achievements in architectural research toward the integrative program. This program is one in which “methods, processes, and techniques are discovered, appropriated, adapted, and altered from ‘elsewhere,’ and often ‘digitally’ pursued.” As such, integrative violence presents itself as the empowering agent for research that employs computation toward purposefully violating boundaries, hybridizing processes and instrumentalizing nature in the name of architecture. It is at once easy and impossible to imagine the extraordinary power necessary to undertake such a task, yet we find ourselves thoroughly immersed in processes that exploit the world as we know it so that we might be able to design worlds that have not yet been imagined. But what makes the integrative program possible, how is it administered, and what constitutes “an effective digital exchange of information?” While the best answers to these questions lie in the research presented and projects exhibited at this conference, I’d like to take a moment to examine how the integrative program operates and how its operation has evolved programmatic violence.
