Architecture in Formation 50 51 increasingly like to attribute to nature itself. ” 10 All designers know that some structures and materials occasionally behave in unpredictable ways, and that under certain conditions, normal relations of cause and effect (stress to deformation, for example) do not seem to apply. Similar shortcomings of predictive sciences may have many rational explanations. Long before the rise of today’s digital technologies for “big data” management, for example, scientists often found it convenient or expedient to follow statistical models rather than causal ones.

61 If the monad exists as an absolute interiority and, like the mirrors in Zahn’s conclave, materializes as an inner surface with only one side, it nonetheless presents another. ”63 Hybrid Form Today, as Deleuze suggested, one issue remains: the question of how to live in the world. The “topological” condition of contemporary living does not allow the difference between inside and outside to survive. ”65 This paradoxical situation – one in which a closed space restores to us the outside of our interiority – describes the condition of our screens, those catoptric boxes that are now part of our ever more interactive environment.

Chichester, West Sussex; Hoboken, NJ: WileyAcademy, 2004); a facsimile, based on the vol. 63, no. 3/4 (1993) issue of Architectural Design. Our starting point is a well-known story. During the 1990s, while many American architects were reading the English translation of Gilles Deleuze’s study The Fold: Leibniz and the Baroque (1993), Greg Lynn edited an issue of Architectural Design (1993) on the topic of Folding in Architecture. 4 Lynn also thumbed his nose at a series of personalities who were fighting rearguard battles, defending what remained of the idea of Semperian tectonics.
