title Robot toys, complexity, and computation: for a transformable architecture
source SIGraDi 2005 - [Proceedings of the 9th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics] Lima - Peru 21-24 november 2005, vol. 1, pp. 499-504
summary In this paper we describe and discuss a course aimed towards developing 3D digital modeling skills focused on the exploration of an architecture that behaves like a dynamic complex integrated system. It crosses knowledge domains to consider the mechanisms that transform energy, adaptive systems, kinetics, and cybernetics. It uses the metaphor of transformable robot toys not only for their correspondence with the ideas explored, but because of their immediacy and physicality. It argues architecture must urgently break with the processes of destruction. [Full paper in Spanish]
