wk 12: Matter vs Materiality

There is no required reading for Wednesday, November 13th. We will discuss Matter and Materiality in the context of Francesca Hughes’ scholarly work. In preparation for Wednesday’s lecture and discussion you need to WATCH the lecture, The Architecture of Error: Matter, Measure and Misadventures of Precision by Francesca Hughes. Don’t worry about Revit Image Series #3 — we will discuss in class.

Francesca Hughes’ work frames the transition from theoretical media issues to processes of materialization; from how things are represented to how things are made. This transition is the context for the rest of the semester. During the next three weeks we will discuss issues of materialization in relation to the following practices:  1. Ensamble Studio2. Neri Oxman3. Gramazio Kohler4. Matter Design
