BLDGBLOG seriously lives 5-10 years in the future, and 5-10 degrees deflected over into a parallel dimension. I mean that as a high compliment. He’s running this course at Columbia this spring:
The purpose of this studio is to look at naturally occurring processes and forms–specifically, glaciers, islands, and storms–and to ask how these might be subject to architectural re-design. We will begin our investigations by looking at three specific case-studies, including the practical techniques and concerns behind each. This research will then serve as the basis from which studio participants will create original glacier/island/storm design proposals.
This is basically Hogwarts for science, technology and architecture nerds. Amazing!
