Exhibit Closing Reception: Reflexive Architecture Machines
Taubman College Gallery (Rm 2106)
Art + Architecture Building
Reflexive Architecture Machines presents a series of architecture machines that reflexively address material and information agency in the forming of space. They re-imagine ways of shaping conventional materials such as rubber, concrete, plastic and wood, using computational strategies to develop more complex relations between parts and wholes. This fundamentally challenges the static nature of these industrialized materials and sensitizes them to the ephemeral and dynamic qualities of the environments in which they are fabricated and eventually deployed.
This work is the outcome of design research conducted in the Situated Technology Research Group at the University at Buffalo, Department of Architecture: Omar Khan, James Brucz, Nick Bruscia, Matt Hume. Exhibition will be on display from February 10 - March 1, 2011.
