title Organized Crime: The Role of Ornament in Contemporary Architecture
source Parametricism (SPC) ACADIA Regional 2011 Conference Proceedings
summary In contemporary architecture, there are clever crooks engaging in organized crime. New architectural identities arise from the clever doubling of the performative and aesthetic/affective roles that architectural surfaces must, and can now feasibly assume. In 1908, Adolf Loos, in his celebrated piece, Ornament and Crime, called for “the elimination of ornament from useful objects.” Rather than demanding elimination and removal, it can be understood that what Adolf Loos was really calling for was reinterpretation. Through the clever reinterpretation and generation of ornament in contemporary architecture with the aid of parametric design software the term “ornament” has assumed a new definition and identity.
